Google Summer of Code. We're excited to welcome three students who will be working with Public Lab mentors through Google Summer of Code. Projects will begin this month and go through the end of the summer. Check out the projects they will be working on here. You can also join in on the conversation as the summer progresses by joining the Public Lab GSoC mailing list.
