Kotlin Foundation Secures 5 Contributor Projects for GSoC 2024

All the projects the Kotlin Foundation submitted for Google Summer of Code 2024 have been accepted! GSoC is a global online program that brings new contributors to open-source software development. Under the guidance of Kotlin Foundation mentors from Google, Gradle, and JetBrains, contributors will work on programming projects lasting 8–22 weeks over the summer.

This year promises to be full of collaboration as we dive into these exciting endeavors. Here is our final list of projects:

  1. Incremental compilation for the Kotlin/Wasm compiler
  2. Kotlin DSL improvements for declarative Gradle
  3. Support Android target in kotlinx-benchmark
  4. Gradle build server – support for Android projects
  5. Compose Multiplatform component gallery generator

Contributors will gain real-world development experience, work on impactful Kotlin projects, learn from experienced mentors, enhance their resumes, and receive stipends.

If you’d like to follow our progress and take part next year, join our #gsoc Slack channel in the Kotlinlang workspace.

Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals, engaged with mentors, or contribute to the OSS community in general. While we couldn’t submit all the projects we received, we value your contributions and encourage you to continue participating in open-source communities.

If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to get in touch. Stay tuned for more updates and exciting developments!

Let’s make this summer unforgettable for Kotlin!
