From the 2009 FAQ: "Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects."

Sugar Labs Google SoC page:

This is a project under Development Team. We are currently looking for a coordinator for summer 2010.

Searching for a coordinator

We are looking for a coordinator for SL's GSoC activities for summer 2001. Responsibilities include:

  • Maintaining this wiki page for the summer 2010 GSoC season (Feb 2010 - Sep 2010)
  • Coordinating SL's application to the GSoC program as a mentorship organization
  • Recruiting mentors
  • Recruiting applicants
  • Selecting applicants
  • Supervising mentors, which largely entails making sure mid-term and end-of-summer reports are handed in on time
  • Interfacing with SLOBs to deal with collection and distribution of funds from Google

No prior experience coordinating mentorship programmes (or even doing development) is needed, though a track record of involvement with Sugar Labs spanning at least 3 months is required.

If you are interested, please add your name to the list below before 23:59:59 UTC Feb 17, 2010.. The Oversight Board will contact interested parties individually to discuss the final selection of a coordinator.
