OpenStack has been a regular participant in community-led internship programs, such as the and for the
first time this year, the . Our wonderful mentors and coordinators have made it possible for OpenStack to have some great interns over the (northern hemisphere) summer. Julie Pichon has helped collect thoughts from the interns:
what they have to say about their experience:

Artem Shepelev worked on a : Working as a part of Google Summer of Code program was very interesting and useful for me. I liked the experience of working with a real project with all its difficulty, size and people involved with it. (Assigned mentors: Yathiraj Udupi, Debojyoti Dutta)

worked on : The experience was really good. Of course one has to sacrifice some things over the summer, but at the end of the day, you have the feeling that it was worth it. (Mentors: Boris Pavlovic and Mikhail Dubov).

Rishabh Kumar: I worked on . It was a really awesome experience to be part of such a vibrant and diverse community.

Prashanth Raghu: GSoC was a great opportunity for me to get started with learning about contributing to open source. During my project I was greatly backed by the community which helped me a lot in finally getting my project successfully shipped into the .

Nataliia: It was a fascinating opportunity. During the internship I worked with the Zaqar team, mainly on , but also with developing api-v1.1. Professionally I learnt a lot, about Python 3 of course, but also from reading and participating in discussions of other
interns: about Redis and AMPQ and how to do proper benchmarking. Socially-wise: There was no feeling of being “an intern”. The team considers all interns as teammates and treats them equally as any other developer. Anyone could (and actually can — why not?) actively participate in discussions and in making decisions. After finishing it, I helped with other tasks, in particular . (Mentor: Flavio Percoco, Kurth Griffiths).
