GSOC Summary

It has been quite a journey these past four months. Working with two brilliant students: Vishal Desai and Gustavo Morais. Both of whom were wonderful to work with and we are proud that they could successfully completed their projects.

We have been hard at work for the past couple of months to meet deadlines. The students have done some very useful work and have summarised their contributions in their blog posts.

Hydra Ecosystem aims at creating a set of tools that help in the adoption and further development of W3C Hydra, a framework that allows building next generation Web APIs and smart clients.

Hydra is a documentation framework that bases on top of established Linked Data (Semantic Web) tools to build the next generation of connected Web APIs. Hydra is currently a draft created by World Wide Web Consortium’s Hydra Community Group: official documentation available here and development is open here.

Hydra Ecosystem promotes and facilitates the adoption of Hydra framework, you can read about in our publication.

This is now the third year we have been accepted to participate as Google Summer of Code organisation.
