DBpedia – GSoC Bonding Period 2023


Great job! You have been chosen as one of our GSoC students for the summer of 2023, where you will be working together with DBpedia. We would like to introduce you to the DBpedia community, developers, and your mentors so that you can establish contact with them. Keep reading to find out more!

Student Projects Announced

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

GSoC Community Bonding

As the Community Bonding is starting now from May, 4 until May, 28 it is now the time to spend a month learning more about DBpedia and it’s community before coding starts on May, 29. To get in touch with your mentores 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 working progress as well as your results.

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

We wish you all the best!
