Subject Seeking Mentors for Google Code-In 2017
Date Tue, 19 Sep 2017 08:05:48 GMT
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

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

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.
