GSoC: Univ. of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka on top of the world!

Wow; this is amazing: Apparently University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka had the most number of Google Summer of Code applicants and accepted proposals this year!

That's awesome! I'm proud to be associated with Univ. of Moratuwa (I teach part time in the Computer Science and Engineering department) and a large percentage of our superb WSO2 engineering team are from there.

Congratulations to everyone at University of Moratuwa, especially to Ms. Vishaka Nanayakkara, Head of Computer Science and Engineering, for her tireless efforts to get students to participate in GSoC and other similar activities and to her incredible passion towards developing the program and the students. Not all applicants are from CSE of course but I believe a large percentage are.
