Now that Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2017 is under way with students in their first full week of the coding period we wanted to bring you some more statistics on the 2017 program. Lots and lots of numbers follow:
Students are working with 201 organizations (the most we’ve ever had!) of which 39 are participating in GSoC for the first time.
Over 20,651 students from 144 countries registered for the program, which is an 8.8% increase over the previous high for the program.
4,764 students from 108 countries submitted a total of 7,089 project proposals.
11.4% of accepted students are women. We are always interested in making our programs and open source more inclusive. Please contact us if you know of organizations we should work with to spread the word about GSoC to underrepresented groups.
The 1,318 students accepted into the GSoC 2017 program hailed from 575 universities, of which 142 have students participating for the first time in GSoC.
