Fortran-lang welcomes new students to Google Summer of Code 2021#
We’re happy to announce six students that will work on Fortran projects under the Google Summer of Code 2021 program:
Aman Godara will work on strings in the Fortran Standard Library. Aman’s mentors will be Sebastian Ehlert and Milan Curcic.
Rohit Goswami will work on the LFortran compiler, specifically toward the capability to compile a complex physics package. Rohit’s mentor will be Ondřej Čertík.
Jakub Jelínek will work on handling compiler arguments in the Fortran Package Manager. Jakub’s mentors will be Laurence Kedward and Brad Richardson.
Chetan Karwa will work on the linked list support in the Fortran Standard Library. Chetan’s mentors will be Arjen Markus and Milan Curcic.
Thirumalai Shaktivel will work on the Abstract Syntax Tree generation in the LFortran compiler. Thirumalai’s mentor will be Ondřej Čertík.
Gagandeep Singh will work on the support of arrays and allocatables in the LFortran compiler. Gagandeep’s mentor will be Ondřej Čertík. Gagandeep was accepted under the NumFOCUS application to GSoC.
This is the first year that Fortran-lang applied for Google Summer of Code, and we’re beyond excited that our project was allocated this many student slots. You can follow students’ progress in their weekly reports in the Fortran Discourse forum.
Thank you, Google, for your support of Fortran and open source software!
