Blown Away by the Google Summer of Code

This year, the Google Web Toolkit is participating in the Google Summer of Code. We were absolutely amazed by the turnout. We received over 100 proposals in response to our request for ideas! We wish we could have accepted everyone, but we had to pick three.

Here are the students who will be working with the GWT team this summer, and their projects:

  • Aleksey Lagoshin: Sockets for GWT
  • Aleksandar Pantaleev: API Compatibility Tool
  • Tomasz Kolodziejczyk: GWT for Gadgets

The competition was fierce -- we had a really tough time narrowing down the field to those three. Thanks to everyone who applied!

We hope you'll help us welcome Aleksey, Aleksandar, and Tomasz as they get started on their projects. They'll be basing their work on the current version of GWT, and we look forward to adding these exciting features to a future version.
