Summer of Code

Following the success of the FOSSx Challenge, Trust Lab has introduced another exciting challenge for FOSS enthusiasts – the Summer of Code.

We invited participants from the FOSSx Challenge to submit problem statements based on the tools they explored during the event. Specifically, we are interested in proposals focusing on enhancements to existing tools and integration strategies between tools. From the received proposals we selected five projects to be worked on collaboratively by a team comprising Trust Lab personnel, FOSSX participants, and new team members during the summer of 2024.

For those who missed out on the FOSSx Challenge, you can catch up on all the details at the link provided below.
