Google Summer of Code 2024 Welcomes Swift as a Participant

# Swift Embarks on Google Summer of Code 2024 Journey!

We’re thrilled to share the exciting news that Swift is set to participate in the Google Summer of Code 2024! This marks another year of engaging contributions and innovative projects from enthusiastic participants in the vibrant world of open source development.

### What is Google Summer of Code?

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a prestigious annual event designed to inspire and guide newcomers into the open source community. It offers a unique opportunity for participants, who are often students but not limited to, to gain real-world software development experience while contributing to various open source projects.

Swift’s journey with GSoC began in 2018, and over the years, we’ve seen a plethora of successful projects that have significantly enriched the Swift ecosystem—ranging from compiler enhancements to runtime improvements, and expansions in the package and tooling sphere.

### Your Gateway to the Swift Community

One of the most rewarding outcomes of the GSoC initiative has been the integration of participants into the Swift community. Many contributors continue their journey with Swift long after the conclusion of the program, which speaks volumes about the supportive and collaborative nature of our community.

If you’re eager to be a part of this transformative experience and contribute to Swift in the upcoming GSoC, here is how you can get started:

1. **Explore Project Ideas**: Begin by exploring the [existing project ideas](#) that intrigue you. These projects cover a wide range of areas within the Swift ecosystem.

2. **Engage in Discussions**: Found a project that piques your interest? Head over to the Swift forums‘ GSoC category to engage in discussions about the project. This is a crucial step to solidify your understanding and approach towards the project.

3. **Craft Your Proposal**: Confident about your project choice? It’s time to draft an insightful proposal outlining how you plan to contribute. Submit your official proposal via the [GSoC website](#).

Feeling innovative? You’re welcome to propose your unique project ideas! Start a thread on the forums and pitch your idea for consideration. Though proposing new ideas can be slightly more challenging, seeing your original concept come to life is exceptionally rewarding.

### Important Dates and Next Steps
