GSoC 2016 is ramping up, currently in the phase accepting mentoring organization applications. We are happy to be applying under the umbrella of NumFOCUS again, and hope for another successful summer!
DyND participated in GSoC 2015 under the NumFOCUS umbrella. We were fortunate to get a great proposal from Ian Henriksen and be accepted into the program. You can read his blog to see the whole process, including some first impressions, contributions to Cython to expand its C++ support, and concluding thoughts. The project worked out great, and Ian is now a core developer of DyND.
