Subject Re: Google Summer of Code 2015 is coming
Date Sat, 07 Mar 2015 14:15:39 GMT
Hey,

we should create a Wiki page for interested GSoC students containing some
guidance on how to participate in Flink.
I would put there what we expect (I'm again in favor of a code
contribution) and how to get started.
Is anybody willing to take care of this?

Best,
Robert
