Subject Mifos Initiative Selected for Google Code-In 2017
Date Thu, 26 Oct 2017 13:08:50 GMT
Just as an FYI, the MIfos Initiative was selected as a mentoring org for
Google Code-In.

Isaac will be assisting in coordinating the program this year.

We'll share details on next steps as we compile our list of a couple
hundred tasks.

Stay tuned for more info.
