Google Summer of Code 2017

Ceph in GSoC 2017

Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school.”

Ceph has been participating in Google Summer of Code for several years now, and we love it! It gives us a chance to always see our project from a fresh perspective, get ideas on how we might do things better, and work with talented students to write Open Source code, what could be better?
