Hello friends! You may know that JRuby was not accepted as a mentoring organization last year. We are applying again this year, and we need your help. * Add ideas to the JRuby GSoC 2015 wiki page here (more ideas will show more potential for GSoC value): https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/Google-Summer-... * If you are interested in being a mentor, please email email@example.com and we'll help you get involved. We're looking for mentors interested in any of the current ideas or in new ideas you'd like to guide a student on. * If you are a student, or you know students that would be interested, or you have a connection inside a computer science program, please help us get the word out! JRuby 9000 has so many new and awesome features (IR, Truffle, native processes/IO, etc) for students to work on, and so much potential in 2015. Now is a great time -- and GSoC is a great way -- to get involved :-) - Charlie

Well the bad news is that JRuby was not accepted to GSoC again this year. The good news is that we will participate as part of the Ruby organization! So...if you are a student or you know a student interested in working on JRuby this summer, now is the time to submit proposals! Here's the bootstrapping page: https://github.com/rubygsoc/rubygsoc/wiki/Getting-Involved And please, pass this along to students, teachers, schools...we have a bunch of great project ideas and lots of interesting work to do on JRuby this summer! - Charlie On Wed, Feb 18, 2015 at 5:47 PM, Charles Oliver N.
