This is awesome about GSoC: Everything about GSoC is pretty good. From working on a software that is actually used in real life, to actually contributing in Open Source community is amazing. Moreover, interacting with mentors and developers from around the globe is priceless indeed!
This is what I learned during GSoC: Sharpening C++ and MySQL skills, improved understanding of Qt APIs and definitely writing better code.
