Octave has participated in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) since 2011 and the ESA Summer of Code in Space (SoCiS) since 2012. Both programs continue to bring potential new contributors to Octave and have them work on interesting projects that could be merged into Octave or otherwise benefit the Octave community.

This page lists all current and past summer of code projects done for Octave under both programs.
