Google Summer of Code Yearly Summary

GSOC 2014

For the first time, the Linux Foundation’s SPDX Workgroup participated in the 2014 Google Summer of Code internship program. The goal was to engage students in open source projects, learn a bit about open source compliance, and meet open source community members. We had excellent engagement in our first year, with a total of four projects accepted from three different universities. These projects helped advance SPDX by connecting the specification with open source programming languages and open source license scanners. They helped move SPDX into communities that can aid and benefit from the distribution of open compliance practices. Specific projects, and the students who worked on them include:

Python SPDX Parser Library - Ahmed Hisham Ismail at the German University in Cairo

GO SPDX Parser Library - Vlad Velici at the University of Southampton

SPDX Merge Tool - Alex Ling at the University of Nebraska Omaha

FOSSology+SPDX Tooling - Zachary McFarland at the University of Nebraska Omaha.
