Hello everybody, I’m Aaron Schmitz – an open source software developer and senior in the mechanical engineering program at the University of Minnesota. I’ve been using open source software for as long as I can remember, and this summer my project for Google Summer of Code is to create a JGoogle Package that will allow easy interaction with the Google APIs from within the Joomla Platform.
Level of Difficulty:Advanced I am Florian Voutzinos, a 22 year old Frenchman living in Toulouse. I've studied engineering in Aeronautics during three years, now student in fundamental Physics, I would like to join a school or University of Informatics. The Google Summer of Code project I am working on is the Workflow engine for the Joomla core.
A Workflow is a sequence of steps that can be for example, performed by a user, and formally represented as a Petri Net or an oriented graph.

Level of Difficulty:Beginner Hi, my name is Javier Gómez and I've been elected to participate in the Google Summer of Code 2012 program.
The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) helps support students who get the opportunity to work with mentors on a variety of coding projects that will all be contributed back to the student's mentoring organization, in my case the Joomla! Project.
This year's Joomla! GSoC application was led by Chad Windnagle (Primary Administrator), Andrea Tarr (Secondary Administrator), and Elin Waring. Key supporters and contributors to the application process include Michael Babker, Robert Deutz, Andrew Eddie, Louis Landry, Jacques Rentzke, and Matt Thomas.
This summer I will be creating a Language Installer Tool for Joomla! CMS. The mentors of the project are Jeremy Wilken, Jean-Marie Simonet, Marijke Stuivenberg. And the documentation for all the project is avaliable at http://languageinstaller.blogspot.com.es/
Please check the following video to see the presentation of the project:

As web developers we have all dealt with the decision of how to best provide website hosting for our clients. It can be a great source of passive income if you make the right decisions or it can be your worst nightmare losing you precious time and coveted client relationships.

It is great to see that Joomla is accepted as a mentoring organization on this year’s Google summer of code. Joomla accepted eight amazing projects this year. I am really excited to work with Joomla this summer and my project is JMediawiki package.
Mediawiki is a free and open source web based wiki software which is popularly know for running wikipeida and all other sites by Wikimedia foundation. It offers a RESTful web service to access and modify the contents hosted in mediawiki. This project intend to build a library to interact with mediawiki based websites.
