Just got word that the news came out last night, Haiku is taking part of Google Summer of Code 2018! As it's been the case, regularly, Haiku will once again be a mentor organization for GSoC, which helps students get involved with open source software development. This will allow not only students become aware of Haiku but will, hopefully, help Haiku itself get fresh blood into the project.
The students application period will run from March 12th to the 27th with the projects announced on April 23rd. That I'm aware of, there's no official Haiku GSoC Projects page yet, but there is an ideas page, which students can take inspiration from. Let's see what the application period brings to the project!
