Hello all:

The GCI program is back again, last year I think it was a success with the
videos the students made of Marble and QGIS using the quickstarts of

I am asking for mentors for this year.
Mentors Job:
Create tasks: based on the quickstarts.
Evaluate students: Check every day if there is a task to evaluate.

I hope this year we can make it a success again.
If you have ideas of what the tasks could be, please sign as mentors.
I already signed as mentor.

This is a call for OSGeo mentors for the Google Code-in contest (where
short 3-5 hour tasks are created for kids aged 13-17).  OSGeo participated
last year for the first time, where kids performed tasks from 11 OSGeo
projects, completing 649 tasks in total over about a 6 week span.  The
tasks are short, only 3-5 hours long, and are not only about coding but can
be documentation, testing, creating logos, videos, blogs, and fun things
that kids like to do.

Interested mentors are asked to fill in the short Google form at

The contests starts 23 October and ends 12 December, but OSGeo's
application is due this coming Monday, so we please if you're interested
fill in that Google form right away (having mentors helps our chances to
have the application accepted).   You can see the full timeline of the
contest at https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Google_Code_In_2018

We'll also have a quick IRC meeting this Thursday, if you have questions
etc, please come and ask.  Time: https://www.timeanddate.com/wo
rldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2018&month=09&day=13&hour=16&min=0  In the IRC
channel #osgeo-gsoc (connect directly in your browser through
https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=osgeo-gsoc )

Last year we had tasks from projects such as GRASS GIS, pgRouting,
MapServer, GeoServer, OpenLayers, OSGeoLive, PostGIS, QGIS, FOSS4G, and
gvSIG).  Let's have more this year!!

Please share this to all OSGeo projects (official/incubation/community).
