After all, this was my last year to apply in GSoC I was expecting to get selected. Next year I am graduating. I failed twice-in GSoC. Anyways I will contribute in other organizations from next year where I have fair chance.

Just one little question @dgarvit haven't many contribution In fact his no contribution are merged. So should I take it as contributions doesn't matter only proposal matters.
Michael Ferguson
@mppf
@zackytail - @dgarvit had a good number of contributions - https://github.com/chapel-lang/chapel/pulls/dgarvit - in contrast you have none - https://github.com/chapel-lang/chapel/pulls/zackytail

Merging PRs is not up to the contributor so un-merged PRs are great as far as GSoC selection is concerned.

@zackytail, man stay calm.
Many of us not get selected but we should respect the community decision. All mentors are way more educated and experienced than us, that's why they are choosing and we are applying.
So, Instead of questioning their decision, focus on contributing to it so that they will request and get more slots than what they have got this year.
Also, It's an open source, GSoC is just a program to promot this culture.
So, even if you are graduating this year, you can still contribute to the organisation and gain experience.

It's 6am here and I couldn't be happier seeing my name on the list of selected proposals!!!

I was rejected by GSoC two years ago with 3 proposals submitted, it was (maybe) the second last chance for me to participate in GSoC because of my schools's weird semester scheduling. This year my proposal was accepted by Chapel, probably because of my background in parallel computing and linear algebra. And two years ago I made a proposal of a GPU project to Blender thinking that I would get selected, but before the proposal submission deadline I knew from my feedback on IRC that it most likely wouldn't be the case. Before that in GCI I spent a couple months grinding on tasks every day, it was the first and sometimes the only thing I would do once I get home from school. There was a list of tasks completed by each student throughout the competition. I tried my best to make sure I was one of the top two students for both quantity and quality of tasks done, actively asking for mentors' feedback. But at the end, I was very disappointed, and a bit frustrated, to find that I wasn't selected as a winner for the organization. Until now, I'm still not too sure why I wasn't selected, maybe I actually "deserved" it, maybe I didn't at all. I really think it would've make some significant difference in my university and most importantly internship applications if I won, so it is still a bit of regret that I couldn't make it, but I guess I would never know. I really wish there is an ideal version of GSoC that whoever puts in a decent amount of efforts given their background would be selected.

I'm very glad I found Chapel. I started preparing for GSoC since last year, and I was preparing for another organization that does scientific computing. The project is quite similar - parallel computing and linear algebra. (They selected the other one of the two students who shown interest in the project, or maybe I was selected in both but I wouldn't know.) I was searching for organizations with keywords such as "parallel" and "GPU" but I didn't find Chapel the first time. I only discovered Chapel around late March and I was very surprised. To be honest if I found Chapel in other channels like normal Internet surfing or Reddit, I would be just as delighted. I was doing parallel computing research in school, and seeing an open source project that makes it much more accessible to programmers and researchers, was a wonderful news. Thank you to everyone who made this project possible and made it what it is today.

Anyway I'm very excited to see what we're able to achieve in the next few months. Two years ago when I first started doing GPU research, I thought that it would really be ground-breaking for me if I managed to beat NVIDIA, to make faster GPU programs than them. Last year I really did! In open source we gather a lot of great minds to cover a lot of perspectives that are needed to develop great software. I would be very glad to see Chapel being better and better.

Thank you all and I wish all of you the very best with your talents and hard work.

@mentors, does Chapel offer internships other than GSoC? In the short time that I have worked with Chapel, I really enjoyed it and found the community helpful, and so I'd love to work with it in the future!
Louis Jenkins
@LouisJenkinsCS
@akshansh2000 Cray Inc., the company developing Chapel, does sometimes offer Chapel internships but its difficult given their budget
Difficult to get it*
We'd be happy to have more open source contributors though.
Even as a spare-time thing
Akshansh Bhanjana
@akshansh2000
Understood. I'll still try to work with Chapel, whenever possible.

Hello Congratulations GSOC 19 Students , I didn't get selected this year but I would still like to work on the Memory Pool .
Mohammed Nafees
@mnafees
Congratulations to all! I've been rejected as well in the past and so I'd like to tell the others to not give up and try again!
@wongalvis14 We're both Waterluvians, hah! Let's meetup on campus and work together?
Louis Jenkins
@LouisJenkinsCS
@DaivikDave I'm glad to hear that you'd be interested in working on creating a concurrent memory pool! I'll have to get back to you on that in two days though (final exams tomorrow)
DaivikDave
@DaivikDave
@LouisJenkinsCS Sure, we can start discussing it after your exams are over.

Today is the day! Good luck to all the students and mentors and I hope we all have an amazing summer ahead working together :D

Mentors, can we create a "gsoc" label for the GitHub issues/PRs that are being worked on by GSoC students?
Michael Ferguson
@mppf
I'm not sure we'll want to add a label but you can put GSoC in the title. In the past, this has been done by students after the fact to support summarizing work done at the end of the program.
Mohammed Nafees
@mnafees
Sounds good, thank you!

Hey @kashish-1209 Please get yourself comfortable with chapel. You can learn through chapel documentation. Thanks

@ben-albrecht
Hey @kashish-1209, in addition to what @krishnadey30 suggests, I'd suggest checking out https://chapel-lang.org/contributing.html
Krishna Kumar Dey
@krishnadey30
I agree with @ben-albrecht. Also you can look for good first issues to start contributing. Feel free to ask any questions.

Is there any progress blog for this gsoc?
Michael Ferguson
@mppf
@minecraft2048 - we're pretty much at the end of the program and I think several of the projects are making blog posts but AFAIK they are not up yet.
Louis Jenkins
@LouisJenkinsCS
Unfortunately not, but progress for each individual project can be seen on their submitted final project URL. @dgarvit why don't you share yours

Hi! So my project was Concurrency Safe Memory Reclamation Systems (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/projects/#6095033818677248). My mentor was @LouisJenkinsCS . Our work has been merged into chapel-lang! You can have a look at the project here: https://github.com/dgarvit/epoch-based-manager
