This page coordinates the Google Summer of Code projects involving Python and mentored by the Python Software Foundation (PSF) in 2009.

The 2009 PSF SoC coordinator is ArcRiley <arcriley@gmail.com>. Contact him if you have any questions.

Prospective Students

If you are a student interested in working on core Python development or on a project that helps the Python community, we'd love to have you apply to the Python Software Foundation for this year's Google Summer of Code.

You should join the soc2009-general mailing list and take a look at the Project Ideas section below. If any interest you, feel free to contact the proposer for details. You can also discuss your own project ideas with the people mentioned or talk about them on the soc2009-general mailing list. Some of us also hang out on #gsoc-python on freenode.

Students should read SummerOfCode/Expectations to understand what is expected of them.

Project Ideas

These are project ideas proposed by mentors grouped roughly on the type of work it entails. Use the provided links for each for more information and contact the mentors interested in it.

Note: This list of project ideas is still in the process of being built. We hope to have a more-or-less complete set of ideas by Friday, March 20th, 2009.

Mentor Instructions

Please be careful with the above table, at the cost of a little syntax headache this is much more presentable to potential students. While you may just link to your own ideas page you're more likely to attract students by offering your projects directly in this index.

Core Python: working with Python's standard library and included modules

Education: projects that promote Python in education

Development: tools used for development including compilers and IDEs

Games: projects working with game engines

MathSci: tools used in math and science
