Plan 9 and Inferno at the Google Summer of Code

2009 GSoC Update

Plan 9 in the 2009 GSoC

Firstly, I’d like to thank Anthony Sorace for investing the time and energy required to get Plan 9 into the Summer of Code program for 2009. His application was a success and we’ll be working hard this year to make the 2009 Summer of Code program a huge success for Plan 9.

If (by some stretch) you are a capable Plan 9 developer who is not yet aware of that, we can always use more mentors. Get in touch with Anthony via the plan9-gsoc mailing list.

If you’re a student, we’ve got a plethora of great projects for you – check out for these. As usual, we’re always willing to hear your ideas, make suggestions, and help you with your proposal. Outside of the plan9-gsoc mailing list, many of us are also on IRC: #plan9-gsoc and #plan9 on

I wish to extend a warm welcome to all interested participants, a huge thanks to everyone who is helping out with the program as an administrator or mentor, and hope that we can get a bunch of cool stuff done this summer.
