Google Summer of Code 2020 has been announced.
Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school.
Do we have projects related to Python Packaging, that are the right kind1 for GSoC 2020? If yes, do we have mentors available for such tasks?
Let’s start compiling a list of projects and figuring out mentors for them. Please leave a comment below if you can think of a project that’s compatible. If we have more than two projects with mentors, I’ll reach out to PSF’s GSoC admins, to become a sub-org of the PSF in mid-Jan 2020.
We’re accepting a limited number of new sub-orgs through March 5th! Email gsoc-admins(at)python.org if interested.
1 IMO the ideally, the projects would:
- be well-defined and well-scoped projects
- be ~8 weeks of full time work from a junior developer
- some students will have overlapping college days, during start/end of GSoC’s coding period.
- allow for stretch goals
- in case the student does achieve the main task earlier than 12 weeks
