For the first time in the history, the GSoC program 2015 has been announced much early, in 2014, before more than 6 months prior to the commencement of the program. Association of Computer Engineering Students (ACES), a student society of University of Peradeniya has organized a GSoC awareness program in their faculty on 2014 November 8th.
I was invited to deliver an introductory session on GSoC program to the students. Lali Devamanthri, a past mentor for the Fedora project and a past GSoC student, addressed the students.
It was a successful and well organized event, where students showed much interest towards the program and much details of the program. Event concluded with a panel discussion.
