Google Summer of Code Statistics

After the Google Mentor Summit, we started to gather some statistics about our participation in Google Summer of Code. In Summer 2014, we were first time accepted as an organization.  Figure 1 shows that since our first year we have increased the number of students mentored from two to six. Unfortunately, with an more students, the odd of a student failing the program increased. In 2017 we started to analyze the pull requests of our students. Here, we counted the open pull request at the last day of GSoC and the closed one one day later. In 2018 we started to analyze the ammount of applications we received .We also analyzed the amount of students per country of residence and continent of residence.
