Hello there everyone, Yesterday Google announced that mlpack has been accepted as a mentoring organization to Google Summer of Code 2018! I'm happy to hear this news; this will be our fifth year participating in the program (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and now 2018).
This typically means that there will be a lot of mailing list and Github activity over the next few months, and through the summer, and a lot of improvements and additions will be merged into the codebase. In previous years it has been really exciting to watch how much the library improves during this part of the year. So, welcome to the community to anyone who is interested in GSoC (or open source in general)! But I should point out that, as always, there is likely to be a lot more activity and questions than the mlpack mentors and maintainers can handle. So, if you are interested in getting involved, please keep in mind that writing code is not the only route to participation; answering questions and helping others are also important things that need to be done. I am looking forward to the summer and I hope you are too! I hope that we have to mail out a lot of mlpack stickers in the next few months. :) Thanks!
