 * Python plugin for Web-CAT:
   * Web-CAT (http://web-cat.cs.vt.edu/) is a plug-in-based web application that supports automated testing and grading of programming assignments that is presently used by over 30 universities and colleges in the United States and elsewhere. The Web-CAT Grader supports traditional models of automated program grading, and also supports grading of assignments where students do their own testing.
   * Web-CAT currently supports programming assignments written in Java and C++. The aim of this project is to provide equivalent support for Python to make life easier for instructors who want to adopt it as an instruction language. The major challenge is security: since student code is executed on the Web-CAT server, steps must be taken to prevent malicious operation, denial of service (accidental or deliberate), and so on. Web-CAT does this for Java and C++ using a custom class loader and linkage against shadow libraries; equivalent techniques will have to be implemented and tested for Python.

This page coordinates the [http://code.google.com/soc/ Google Summer of Code] projects involving Python and mentored by the Python Software Foundation (PSF).

The 2008 PSF SoC coordinator is JamesTauber (jtauber at jtauber dot 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 [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-general soc2008-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 soc2008-general mailing list.

Students should read ["/Expectations"] to understand what is expected of them.

Prospective Mentors

Prospective mentors should join both the [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-general soc2008-general] and [http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/soc2008-mentors soc2008-mentors] lists. Once you've been approved for the soc2008-mentors mailing list, you should introduce yourself and what project areas you can help mentor. Contact JamesTauber if you have any questions.

Project Ideas

Other Python-Related Organizations

The organizations for 2008 have not yet been announced by Google but last year other organizations beside PSF who did Python-related work included: Zope, Plone, wxPython, Django, Bazaar, SCons, Thousand Parsec, Kamaelia and MoinMoin. I will update this list with links once Google has announced the list of organizations for 2008.

If you are applying as an organization and have projects involving Python, please contact JamesTauber so we can work more closely together.
