Hello everyone, We are now recruiting projects to promote in Google Summer of Code 2019 and Outreachy Round 18!
Both these programs have a similar timeline for the summer round. Accepted candidates will work with mentors from May to August 2019. Through both these programs, we bring new contributors to Wikimedia technical projects. Browse through Outreach programs <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreach_programs> to learn more. Earlier we promote the projects, better it works out for everyone. Students get enough time to prepare their application, organization administrators to do ample outreach and mentors to find a strong candidate for their project. If you are interested in mentoring a project, create a task on Phabricator and tag it with #outreach-programs-projects <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> and #Google-Summer-of-Code (2019) or #Outreachy (Round 18). You can also choose to mentor for projects already on outreach-program-projects <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/outreach-programs-projects/> workboard. Remember, every project must have two mentors. Learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a mentor <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code/Mentors>. To get some idea of the nature of projects, see the completed Google Summer of Code and Outreachy projects from last year <https://wikimediafoundation.org/2018/08/27/google-summer-of-code-outreachy-round-16/>. Help us spread the word about Wikimedia's participation in these programs and looking forward to your participation! :) --- *Cheers,* *Derick, Pratyush and Srishti (Wikimedia org admins)* _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
