Student interaction via GSOC has been awesome

Last few years, JBoss Community projects participated on GSOC via the Fedora Program. This is the first year, we are participating as an independent entity in the GSOC program. So naturally we are excited as well as learning.

So far the interaction with the student community has been very awesome. They have come to JBoss Community with questions, interests and passions that we would not normally have.  Since the deadline for student proposals is April 6, they have been scampering with their proposals, hopping on to our email lists, IRC channels and forums.

Currently, the students are primarily interacting via the email list (  Signup:  and IRC channel #gsoc-jboss on freenode  (the log is at )

The mentors that have signed up on the Ideas Page for JBoss Community ( are excited, not only to have received multiple proposals for their projects but also to have great questions on their respective projects.
