    45 While we are already collaborating globally with other institutions and while Orange is open source from the very beginning we have never really managed to build a real open source community around the project. This year we have decided that we should work more actively towards this and we see GSoC as a great motivation and initiative to open our development and start building global community of independent contributors around Orange. It is also an opportunity for us to gain experience how to organize necessary environment for community participation and also reach to possible interested participants. And of course, to slowly show ourselves on the map of open source projects and communities.

    4747On the other hand, we have much experience with working with students as we are also an educational institution at university level so we believe we can give much to possible students, ranging from knowledge and experience in data mining and machine learning to programming, algorithms, software development in general. We also hope that maybe we can find some students which would be interested in this fields also after the GSoC, possibly also into research.
