[To Revisit] Google Summer of Code


Jaskirat Singh from Codeuino volunteered as a mentor for GSOC the past two years, and mentioned that CB is probably eligible to apply as an org, if we wanted to.


Applications open January 15, 2019, and we’d need:

  • to apply
  • decide if we want to propose any projects for students
  • figure out who wants to mentor a student during the summer (4-5 hours per week expected, I think)

Questions we’ll have to answer:

The questions vary from year to year, but will be similar to:

Why does your org want to participate in GSoC?
How many potential mentors have agreed to mentor this year?
How will you keep mentors engaged with their students?
How will you help your students stay on schedule to complete their projects?
How will you get your students involved in your community during GSoC?
How will you keep students involved with your community after GSoC?
Has your org been accepted as a mentor org in GSoC?
What year was your project started?
Where does your source code live?
You’ll also be asked to complete a profile for your organization including the following:

Organization name
