Jenkins in Google Summer of Code 2023

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global, online program focused on bringing students and new contributors into open source software development. GSoC contributors work with an open source organization on a 10-22 week programming project under the guidance of mentors.

GSoC contributors accepted into the program receive a stipend and are sponsored by Google to work on well-defined projects to improve or enhance the Jenkins project. In exchange, numerous Jenkins community members volunteer as mentors for the selected GSoC contributors. Mentors help the contributors integrate into the open source community and help them succeed in completing their projects.

Our documentation will be updated over time to reflect the changes in the GSoC program, please report any issues you discover.

Org Admins

Org Admins are the people managing the GSoC program for the Jenkins Organization. For 2023, Org Admins are:

  • Alyssa Tong

  • Jean-Marc Meessen

  • Kris Stern

  • Bruno Verachten

The following checklists and documents describe the role.


  • We use the GSoC SIG for communications about GSoC. Projects may also have their own mailing lists, chats and meetings. See details on project pages.

  • We use Discourse for discussions. This is the recommended channel for communications

  • There is also a GSoC Gitter channel for real-time communications, but it is better to use Discourse to request technical feedback or to have long discussions

  • For private matters such as communication difficulties with mentors, GSoC contributors, or Org Admins, please use the group email.

GSoC Discourse

Public communication channel: GSoC Discourse.

The purpose of GSoC Discourse is for all public communications on GSoC such as new mentor and new GSoC contributor introductions, project proposal questions and discussions, process and timeline related questions.


Office hours

Although we use Discourse as the main communication channel, we also have regular "office hours" video calls. During these time slots Jenkins GSoC org admins and mentors are available for any GSoC-related questions.

  • Schedule: weekly 30 minutes meetings. Office hours will be held on Thursdays at 16:00 UTC. Use the Jenkins event calendar to view the meeting time in your own time zone.

  • Agenda

  • Meetings are commonly recorded on-demand and posted here.

This meeting will be used for Q&A with GSoC applicants/contributors and mentors before the announcement of accepted projects as well as during the GSoC program. You can add the office hours to your calendar when you visit the Jenkins event calendar. More slots may be added on-demand, e.g. for project-specific discussions.

In addition to these organization-wide meetings, each GSoC project has regular meetings during community bonding and coding phases. See the project pages for the schedule.
