Welcoming GSoC 2022 students!

Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal to MetaBrainz for this year’s Summer of Code!

This year, we have selected seven projects. The chosen students and projects are:

Ansh Goyal – BookBrainz and CritiqueBrainz: CritiqueBrainz reviews for BookBrainz entities

Ashutosh Aswal – MusicBrainz Android App: Adding BrainzPlayer in Android App

Prathamesh Ghatole – ListenBrainz: Clean Up The Music Listening Histories Dataset

Shatabarto – ListenBrainz: Send a track to another user as a personal recommendation

Shubh – BookBrainz: Unified Creation Form

skelly37 – Picard: Make Picard work in single instance mode, then improve existing error handling and crash info.

Yuzie – ListenBrainz: Add Timezone support to ListenBrainz

Welcome aboard and congratulations!
Your contributions to MetaBrainz projects and the community are impressive and admirable. We look forward to work with you over the summer and see your work come to fruition 🙂

Communication is the key to success in a closely knit community as ours. Always feel free to reach out to your mentors and other members of the community if you face any issues (stuck in your code, health or family emergencies, etc.). We, the mentors, are here to support and help you.

For all the students that applied but did not get accepted: we appreciate your applications, and even if you did not make the cut this year, we hope that you will stick around and apply with us again next year when we know you better – and you know us better.
