Wikimedia is participating in Google Summer of Code 2017. Interested in being a mentor?

Srishti Sethi
Wikimedia got accepted among the 201 organizations in the Google Sumer of
Code (GSOC) 2017 <https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/>!

We are trying to make it easier for prospective students to choose a
project idea and get started. And, so we are considering to showcase a
bunch of project ideas on the MediaWiki GSOC page itself:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code_2017.

Help us by mentoring a project from here:

   - Check out the tasks in the '*Missing Mentors*' and '*Almost Ready to
   be Mentored*' column on Possible-Tech-Projects
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/possible-tech-projects/>
   workboard.
   - Check out the ''*Wishlist 11-30 (needs owner)*" and *"Wishlist 31-50
   (needs owner)"* column on the Community-Wishlist-Survey-2016
   <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/board/2420/> workboard.
   - Any portion of your project, which needs some support, would be a 2-3
   month long project for a beginner and overall a good learning experience.

If you are interested in mentoring a project, add "
*Outreach-Programs-Projects*" and "*Google-Summer-of-Code (2017)*" tag to
the corresponding task on Phabricator. We will follow up with you from
there.

If you are looking for design, and documentation related projects to
mentor, we are participating in the Outreachy
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Round_14> program as well in
parallel to GSOC. Add "*Outreach-Programs-Projects*" and "*Outreachy
(Round-14)*" tag to a task you are interested in mentoring.

Email me if you've any questions, happy to help!!

Cheers,
Srishti

Cool.

If I may promote some projects that would be nice to go along with the
LearnWiki project and improving the new user experience in general:

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91655, Editor-focused dashboard gadget,
currently "Almost Ready to be Mentored"

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148969 Provide some love to the Quiz
extension, currently "Ready to be Mentored"

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T87598 Create a CAPTCHA that is also a
useful micro edit, currently "Needs discussion". (Improvements to the
CAPTCHA situation in general would be great).

Thanks!

Pine

For those projects not ready to be mentored, please feel free to
either mentor these tasks yourself or to contact potential mentors.

I just had an idea. My bot Reports Bot is always in need of updates and minor maintenance, and I think GSOC could be good for people interested in working in Python. But I don't want to propose something if it would be too much work for the person doing it. Is there guidance on how complex/major these tasks and projects can or should be?

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreach_programs/Life_of_a_successful_project
says that "A good internship project should take about two weeks for a
senior developer to complete."

If that time frame is not already mentioned in
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreach_programs/Life_of_a_successful_project#For_possible_mentors
please feel very free to edit / add. :)

Thanks!,
andre

You shouldn't worry about the difficulty of the task for GSoC per se. What
matters is that you create a phab task and add "*possible-tech-projects*"
and "*GSoC-2017*" tag to the project. Once thats done, we can help with
working out its scope for the GSoC internship through phabricator.
Even if the goal is big, I'm sure the task could be broken down into
smaller chunks to make it suitable for the internship. The rest could be
finished up as a followup. Please feel free to add your task.

Re: Wikimedia is participating in Google Summer of Code 2017. Interested in being a mentor?

Srishti Sethi
Projects that we’ve showcased on the landing pages of GSOC 2017
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code_2017>/Outreachy Round
14 <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreachy/Round_14> are receiving great
interest from students. See here: T158296
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T158296>, T63989
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T63989>, and T148969
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148969>.

We need your help to make the same case for a few more projects which are
almost ready to be featured but need a little bit more attention, and
mentoring support:

- Editor-focused dashboard gadget (T91655
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91655>) [Needs mentors who are familiar
w/ developing gadgets, or design research*]*

- Single Image Batch Upload (T138464
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T138464>) *[*Needs a mentor with
skills: vacant,
toollabs, skills/OAuth, frontend]

- Create a captcha that is also a useful micro edit (T87598
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T87598>) [Needs discussion]

- Improvements to ProofreadPage extension and wikisource (T128840
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T128840>) [Missing mentors]

- One of the subtasks of a developer Wishlist proposal: Customizable
templates for core HTML email
<http://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T156231> *[*Needs
discussion + missing mentors]

Not what you could help with is in the list above? Help review a few from
the possible-tech-projects
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/possible-tech-projects/>. Looking
forward (:

Cheers,

Srishti
