google summer of code (GSOC) 2021 is comming up, they changed the format a bit, to smaller projects, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
What is GSOC?
Basically students pitch projects to open source orgas that take part and if they get choosen they can work on that over the summer and get paid by google.
Here’s what I’m proposing:
I would like to take part in gsoc this year under the umbrella of
elm-tooling and focus on stuff outside of the compiler. Evan made it very clear, that he thinks it’s to much work for him with too little return. That’s fine, but I think we can still do it for other parts of the eco system.
What do we need?
I need help, both organizing it and mentoring it.
Organization can be as simple as keeping everybody in the loop or handling some paperwork.
Mentoring basically means to talk with a (your) student on a regular basis. It depends on the student, but usually it’s a few minutes a day and maybe three hours a week.
If your interested, please let me know either here or in slack (maybe we should get a channel there)
We also need projects:
We need to generate some ideas, what we could have a student work on (they can still pitch whatever they want, but just a few do). So I’ve created a git repo with a template, please feel free to add some projects you like to see or even just add an issue to discuss it.
If there are any questions left, feel free to reach out.
