Google Code-In Wrap-up

As you may have already heard, Google announced the winners for GCI 2015, including those from ubuntu. Overall, we had a total of 215 students finish more than 500 tasks for ubuntu! The students made contributions to documentation, created wallpapers and other art, fixed Unity 7 issues, hacked on the core apps for the phone, performed tests, wrote automated and manual tests, and worked on tools like the qatracker. I’d like to personally thank all the mentors and students for a job well done!

Here’s our winners!

  • Daniyaal Rasheed
  • Matthew Allen

And our Finalists

  • Evan McIntire
  • Girish Rawat
  • Malena Vasquez Currie

Everyone in the top ten did excellent work, and it was very hard to decide on five finalists, and even harder to choose only two to win. In recognition of their accomplishments, I’m sharing the entire top ten list:

  • MatthewAllen
  • malevasquez
  • Girish Rawat
  • Aditya
  • Alex Dueppen
  • xcub
  • fazerlicourice71256
  • McIntireEvan
  • Hunter Jarrell
  • Ayush

Well done to all of you!

The finalists will receive some goodies from Google including a t-shirt, certificate and hoodie. In addition, the two winners will receive a trip to Google HQ this June as part of the prize. I hope we get a writeup of the trip (hint,hint!)!

Thanks again everyone for their hard work!
