Hello everybody,

We are excited to have so many active students again this year!

I guess everyone has read our instructions, http://wiki.dbpedia.org/gsoc2018, 
and the GSoC timeline, https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline

In any case, please read it again. :-) Make sure you understand everything and 
don't be afraid to ask for clarifications.

The application period is now officially open, so students should visit the 
program site, g.co/gsoc, to register and start submitting their proposals for 
the summer projects to us.

Please elaborate your proposal in a Google Doc. When you're done, share it with 
the respective mentor, 
The deadline for proposals is March 27, but it will make it easier for you (and 
your mentors) to start preparing and sharing your application sooner rather 
than later.

You should also use the Github site, https://github.com/dbpedia/GSoC, to ask 
questions to make sure you understood everything. The warm up tasks are meant 
to get you hand-on with the project and see if it something you actually like. 
Both questions and the warm up tasks are only meant to help write a perfect 
application that impresses us. This is your final goal and this is what we will 
evaluate in the end so please do not forget that!

Also, keep in mind that all mentors have a full-time job and do the mentoring 
on their free time. The sooner you send them a draft of your application, the 
more time you give them to provide you feedback for improvements and the more 
time you have to incorporate their feedback back in your proposal.

Good luck to everyone, we are looking forward to read your awesome applications.

Magnus, on behalf of the DBpedia GSoC Admin team
