This week marks the halfway point of Google Summer of Code 2012. Both students and mentors will be submitting their midterm evaluations of one another through Friday, July 13th as indicated in our timeline. If you would like to read more about these midterm evaluations, please check out the "How Do Evaluations Work?" link on our FAQ.
The next milestone for the program will be the “pencils down” date of August 13th after which students can take a week to scrub their code, write tests, improve calculations and generally polish their work before the firm end of coding on August 20th.
There has been fantastic progress made so far, and we encourage all the students, mentors, and org admins to keep up the great work!
