The Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an annual program funded by Google to allow hundreds of students around the world to participate in free or open source software.

GSoC is open to students using all kinds of technologies and each year we like to see many projects written in/for the Haskell programming language.

Some possibly useful links:

Achieved Goals

Refactor program with HLint suggestions

My project was refactoring programs with hlint suggestions. I'm counting it as a success but I am waiting for a new release of HSE and hlint before making an announcement. We can apply almost all suggestions from hlint.

Here is a demo of it working - https://camo.githubusercontent.com/a928338441f119fa911151c0db0ceaa72c51e0c4/687474703a2f2f692e696d6775722e636f6d2f3759586f5666742e676966

Interactive widgets in IHaskell

My project "Interactive widgets in IHaskell" was completed successfully. We'll be having a public announcement with an online demo on try.jupyter.org soon.

A Strict language pragma for GHC

Johan Tibell writes: I'm very happy with Adam's work strict Haskell. StrictData is already in HEAD and will be part of 8.0. Adam is working (as his studies permit) of finish the rest. Perhaps if we're really lucky we'll have the Strict pragma as well in 8.0.

Did Not Achieve Goals

Implementation of Layered Gramamar of Graphics

Last commit was made on 30 June 2015 and the README says

   Working on a implementation of layered grammar of graphics. Work in progress,
   Nothing to see here, Move on.

It may be that this work has been subsumed here https://github.com/cchalmers/plots but I am not sure how to confirm this.
