DBpedia – GSoC Bonding Period 2022


Congratulations! You made it! You are selected as one of our GSoC students, who will work with DBpedia during the summer of 2022. In the following we will introduce how you can get in contact with the DBpedia community, the developers and your great mentors. Keep reading!

Student Projects Announced

Last Friday Google finally announced who is selected as a GSoC student for this year. Accepted students are now paired with a mentor and start planning their projects and milestones. 

GSoC Community Bonding

It’s now time to spend a month learning more about the community of DBpedia. From the 20th of May to the 12th of June, the Community Bonding is taking place before coding starts on the 13th of June. To get in touch with your mentors and everyone else from the DBpedia Community, you have plenty of options:

  • First of all, you can chat with other DBpedians on Slack, where you are able to join DBpedia developers discussion and technical discussions. 
  • To increase your visibility in the DBpedia Community, try to answer some questions in the DBpedia forum (especially in the unanswered & support category) and browse the topics. 
  • Last but not least, check out our Github repository for open issues and see if you can help to solve them (e.g issues regarding the extraction framework or mappings).

When you share something about your project on your own blog or github, please inform us and your mentors. Thus, we can share it with the community and show your work results.

In case you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via dbpedia@infai.org.

Stay safe and check Twitter or LinkedIn. Furthermore, you can subscribe to our newsletter for the latest news and information around DBpedia.

We wish you all the best!
