Join me in congratulating these students on their acceptance.
In case you don’t know for some reason, Google Summer of Code is a program where Google pays students to write code for open source projects. SymPy was accepted as a mentoring organization this year. The goal of the summer is to help the students learn new skills, in particular in our case:
* contributing to open source
* working with the community
* learn git, pull requests, reviews
* teach them how to review other’s people patches
* do useful work for SymPy
* have fun, and encourage the students to stay around
