GSOC 2019 – release-bot project

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 @Z0Marlin

Call for Projects and Mentors – GSoC 2019

Fedora at Google Summer of Code 2019

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.

Fedora needs your help!

Fedora is currently looking for mentors and projects, it’s very starightforward to propose yourself as a mentor and a project.
The project encourages mentors to come forward and propose project ideas by 2019-02-06. More deatils are given below.

How to Propose a Project?

If you want to mentor a specific project, think carefully about several things:

  • Do you have enough time to work on this with the student during the entire project.
    You will be helping someone else when they get stuck. You don’t want to become a blocker because you’re busy.
  • It is harder to find success when you are completely certain of how an idea needs to be implemented; finding a student with the skills and interest to implement a specific solution is a lot harder than finding a student with enough skills to respond to a use case need. Also, students learn more when they help design and guide the project. In other words, provide guidance and direction but let the student do some of the “driving.”
  • Where you can have looser ideas, you may be able to find a student who works as a sort-of intern who can implement a solution to a use case you have. In past experiences, students going after a use case are more likely to get somewhere with self-direction and support from you.
  • Who can help you?

Try to find a second mentor for the project.

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

Can I be a Mentor Without a Project?

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.

Final GSoC Report – Fedora App : Abhishek Sharma

About Project

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.
