GSOC 2017 Results

After GSOC results were out I had the following questions in my mind :

  • How many people cleared it this time?
  • Which organisation had maximum number of students?
  • Which technologies were students most interested in?
  • Which country had maximum number of selections?
  • Which college had maximum number of selections?

And many more. But Google hasn’t released any stats yet for GSOC 2017 Results so I decided to get as many answers as possible from whatever data that was available. I took the results data from the gsoc website and  wrote this: https://github.com/vik-y/GSOC-2017-Results .

These are the results that I have been able to get from the data so far:
