For many years now, Haiku is a regular participant in the Google Summer of Code program, which offers paid mentorship to people willing to work full time on Haiku for a few months. Google handles the payments, while mentors from our developer team handle the onboarding of the new contributors and guide them through the project.

This year, 3 developers were selected.

  • Pairisto will be mentored by korli and scottmc and will work on the TUN virtual network interface driver (with the goal of eventually allowing usage of VPN applications in Haiku, but also useful for virtual machines such as QEMU to access the network more efficiently).
  • trungnt2910 will be mentored by jessicah and will port the .NET Developer Platform (compiler and runtime) to Haiku, making it possible to build and run C# code on Haiku.
  • Zardshard will be mentored by PulkoMandy and humdinger, and will work on improving and polishing Icon-O-Matic

Please welcome them to the community! You may have already met them on the forums and IRC, and they already have submitted several patches for review, so we're looking forward to a very productive summer!
