Subject: Seeking Mentors for Google Code-In 2017

Hello Mifos and Apache Fineract communities,

Google just announced it's Google Code-In program will be occurring once again for the 8th
consecutive year. The Mifos Initiative will likely once again apply to participate in Google
Code-In in 2017.

This is Google's program to help introduce pre-university students to open source where students
compete to complete as many bite-sized tasks (3 to 5
hours) as possible across the following buckets: Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research,
Quality Assurance, or User Interface.

We participated last year and it was an honor to work with talented high school students and
a great way to get many of our newest community members mobilized as mentors.

Please read our wrap-up post - - and Rajan's post about his trip to the
GCI event - on our blog.

Before we submit our application, I wanted to begin capturing who would like to serve as a
mentor. For all of our recent GSOC interns, this is a great way to begin deepening your role
in the community.

This call for mentoring is open to to everyone - you don't have to be a developer as we need
mentors for students working on all the domains.

If you're interested in mentoring, please fill out the form at or respond to this mailing list thread.

A critical part of a successful GCI is a wealth of small tasks - we'll soon begin generating
our list so put on your thinking cap of work you'd like to see done.

More on the 2017 GCI program can be found below.
