Help AboutCode build better open source tooling for Software Composition Analysis during GSoC 2022

This is AboutCode’s fourth consecutive year participating in Google Summer of Code (GSoC), and we are looking forward to working with talented aspiring open source contributors!

We recorded this video for prospective contributors to share more information about AboutCode and our project ideas for 2022. This video covers:

  • An introduction to AboutCode
  • Our key projects and project ideas for the GSoC
  • What we expect from aspiring contributors
  • What you can expect from us

Prospective contributors should take a look at our GSoC 2022 page for more details and a list of potential projects and ideas. You can also read about the work from previous year’s participants in this retrospective from 2020.
