Students are encouraged to start working now on their project proposals.
You can peruse the [list of ideas](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2016/Ideas) or come up with your own.
In any case, it is highly recommended you talk to a mentor sooner rather than later.
The official application period for student proposals starts on March 14th.
Do not hesitate to join us in the [#gentoo-soc](irc://irc.gentoo.org/gentoo-soc) channel on freenode.
We will be happy to answer your questions there.
[More information on Gentoo's GSoC effort](https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/2016) is also available on our Wiki.
