Hi Aizhamal,

Yes, it would be amazing if we could get some help around documentation.
There's a few Jira tickets related to this as well.

Who would like to be a mentor?

Hello everyone,

TL;DR Google Season of Docs (GSoC for Documentation) was announced
yesterday. Airflow can benefit from this program, as it doesn't have a
designated technical writer. To participate, an Airflow member can directly
apply before 23rd April, and if selected, the team will have a chance to
receive an experienced technical writer for 3 months helping to improve the
documentation.


Google Season of Docs is the program that brings open source projects and
technical writers together [1]. It is similar to Google Summer of Code but
for Documentation, and the technical writers are not students but
experienced folks in the filed. Projects can apply directly, it doesn't
have to be through ASF for example.

To be a mentor in this program, you don't have to be a technical writer,
but you must know the product and the open source well to onboard/introduce
tech writers to the project and be able to support them during the whole
process.

I think it will be very beneficial for Airflow to participate, as the
survey also pointed out the need for Docs improvement [2].

If there is interest, i will be happy to coordinate the application process
and support interested mentors.

Thanks,
A.
