Thursday at OSCON, Leslie Hawthorn gave an update on the state of the 2009 Google Summer of Code program. One of the points that she shared with the audience was the 93% student success rate as of midterm evaluations, which were submitted July 13th. Congratulations to our students, mentors, and admins for all their hard work! Based on our mentor survey, most of our students are doing well, with a few students already finishing their project!

For the rest of the students, the summer is not over yet and there is still lots of coding left to do. I hope that this year will be our most successful to date! Read the statistics about previous years here.
