Google Summer of Code 2021 program

1 minute read


I will explain in this post a brief summary of what is the Google Summer of Code (abreviated GSoC). In short, the GSoC 2021 program is a 10-weeks program by Google where students all around the world are paired with mentors and work as developpers for an open source organization.

The organization that I will be working for this summer is SageMath together with the mentor Vincent Delecroix. SageMath is a mathematical software that can perform multiple computing task and is very useful for a wide variety of students and researchers. I personally used a lot this software in the past during my study, so I am very enthusiastic of being a part of this for the summer 2021.

My main goal will be to implement a new feature into this software, which is the “ring of quasimodular forms”. A more precise description of my project can be found here.

The 10-weeks coding period of GSoC will begin in June 7. Hence, every two weeks during the program, I will document my journey here on my blog by explaining my work and sharing my ideas. Before this coding period, I will be in a preparatory phase where I will study the mathematical side of quasimodular forms and explain what is the current state of SageMath regarding modular forms.
