On May 6, the selected students for Google summer of code 2019 were officially announced. We, as mentors of the release-bot project, would like to thank all applicants and provide insight into our decision process.
Google summer of code is popular for the past several years which means that competition is really high. For our project, release-bot, this was definitely the case. We had several very promising candidates providing early contributions. The code which was written during the application period resulted in the new release `0.7.0` of release bot, thank you to (in alphabetical order) @Aniket-Pradhan, @Elias999, @marusinm, @shresthagrawal, @Toaster192, and @Z0MarlinContinue reading

Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development.
Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school. In the previous year, Fedora had an awesome participation
and we would like to continue to be mentoring Org this year too.
If you want to mentor a specific project, think carefully about several things:
If you’re interested in working with a student on a specific project you should post your idea to the Mentored Projects Issue Tracker. Your issue should be tagged GSoC and use the Google Summer of Code template. We strongly encourage you to find a second person to help with mentoring and to solicit feedback on your proposal
Yes! You can either:
Work with a student who brings an idea to your sub-project. This requires a different level of communication throughout the project, but can be the most rewarding.
Be a general mentor. This is a person who works with all students regardless of their project. To become a general mentor please open an issue in the Mentored Projects Issue Tracker offering your help. Please tag the issue with the GSoC tag.
I worked on the redesign of the user experience and interface of the Fedora Community App. The Fedora App is a central location for Fedora users and innovators to stay updated on The Fedora Project. I revamped the design of the application from ground up to match the community standards and improve the overall experience.
