Catalyst Open Source Academy 2015

This year we had 6 students working on the Koha project as part of their project work for the Catalyst Open Source Academy  and a very productive 3.5 days it was too.

In total we submitted 29 new patches, tested and signed off on 9 more, and even rescued one patch from languishing in the ‘patch does not apply’ status.

So far most of the patches have been signed off, and some have passed QA, and a few have even been committed into the codebase. In fact the upcoming 3.18.3 Koha release will have 5 patches from 3 of the students from 2015, and 1 patch from a former Academy student who is now an intern at Catalyst.

After all that hard work, I figured they deserved a cupcake, so I asked the wonderful Sweet Release Cake and Treats to make some, and we ended up with these, which everyone loved.
