In the second year of CROSS being a mentor organization for Google Summer of Code, we received Google funding for 4 summer students. For more information, see my GSoC Mentor Summit [lightening talk](https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/17a8PSOWnuoOOfv-snVEno2oIaDFEUfQ6UirhHW4k6k0/edit?usp=sharing).
One of the outcomes of attending [!!Con West](http://bangbangcon.com/west/2019/) was an opportunity to join the 285th podcast of [Embedded.fm](https://www.embedded.fm/): “[A Chicken Getting to the Other Side](https://www.embedded.fm/episodes/285)”
