🎉 webpack + Google Summer of Code 2018
Jevan Chan, Dhruvdutt Jadhav, Vincent Chan selected as GSOC 2018 Webpack Students!
If you have been following the Google Summer of Code projects, you’ll notice that this year webpack is among the list of organizations participating this year!
This year we were awarded an unprecedented 3 slots! (Typically new organizations are only awarded 1–2). Here are the students we have selected!
Congratulations Jevan Chan, Dhruvdutt Jadhav, and Vincent Chan!!! We are extremely excited to kick off GSOC 2018 with you together!!!
Each student will be focusing on a vital enhancement for webpack, and the webpack-cli. The general overview (without spoiling too many details 😏) is as follows:
- Creating WebAssembly versions of webpack core modules/dependencies
- Automation and Infrastructure for the webpack-cli
- Deep Scope Analysis for webpack core
Throughout the next few weeks, mentors who have been paired with each of the individual students will collaborate weekly to talk about expectations, research, and required work for their goals.
In addition, we will have each individual student publish their first medium article from our webpack publication introducing themselves to our ecosystem and community! Similar to our Freelance Logbook, we have expectations that our students share weekly/bi-weekly updates about their progress that can be visible to you all!
We believe that communication is vital in any open source role, and this is one of the ways we are working to help students build these skills.
We’re excited to keep you all informed on the progress, so subscribe to our publication and look for a new “GSOC 2018” section in our navigation bar which will host and allow you to keep track of each students work along the way!
