Kotlin is taking part in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) for the first time!
GSoC is a global online stipend program focused on bringing new contributors into open-source software development. This is an excellent opportunity to work on a 12-week programming project with the Kotlin Foundation under the guidance of mentors from Google, JetBrains, and Gradle, while gaining experience on a real-world project in the open-source community.
Here are the proposed projects:
Kotlin Multiplatform protobufsKotlin Compiler error messagesKotlin Multiplatform librariesGroovy to Kotlin Gradle DSL converterEclipse Gradle KTS editingImprove support for parameter forwarding in the Kotlin plugin for IntelliJ IDEAEnhance the kotlinx-benchmark library API and user experienceParallel stacks for Kotlin Coroutines in the debugger
Submit a proposal from March 20 to April 4 to be considered for one of these projects.
