Org applications for Google's Summer of Code are now open (deadline February 6). Do you think the Django Software Foundation should participate?
We haven't had any high quality student applications that we could accept for the past two years. Perhaps it's partly a function of a poor ideas page (https://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/SummerOfCode2018). Perhaps we don't do a great job of publicizing our involvement and attracting high quality students. Perhaps it's because the student payment isn't all that much (+/-$6000 USD, depending on student's country)* for the amount of work involved (also, students have to put in a lot of work up front in their application, with no guarantee of being accepted into the program). If you have any ideas about mentoring or suggesting a project, or if you're serious about being a student (you should start contributing to Django now if you don't already), please share. * https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/student-stipends -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Django developers (Contributions to Django itself)" group.
