How to participate

As a student As a mentor As the Sugar Labs soordinator
We strongly recommend orientating yourself with the Sugar Labs codebase. You can directly benefit a new software developer's coding competency, confidence levels while contributing to Sugar Labs and developing your own first-line management skills. Can you help orientate new Sugar Labs members, keep mentors advised & generally make Sugar Labs' GSoc 2010 a success? Read the blurb below!

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.
