[OSGeo-Discuss] Google Summer of Code 2008 - Applivation

2008-03-11 Thread Wolf Bergenheim

Hello.

I've created a wikipage [1] with the answers to the questions from the 
GSoC application form. If you are a mentor or a PSC who knows the 
mentors for your project please update the page with this info. The 
mentor information should list the google accounts. The Deadline will be 
tonight at 23:59. Sorry for the short notice.

Is it a big deal if mentors were left off the official list? I was on the 
MapServer list but was not included
on the application.

Steve,

No, it is not a big deal.  The list in the application is primarily to
establish that we have a reasonable deep set of mentors available.  We
can add more later.

Best regards,

Google announced Summer of Code 2008 on Monday, mentor applications can 
be sent in on the 3rd. So we should get to work on creating the ideas 
lists and signing up as volunteer mentors! ;)

Please start spreading the word. I hope we will have many cool projects

For the record, Chris Schmidt has set up a page on the openlayers wiki
for project Ideas. Can/should we somehow integrate/link this to OSGEO?

Now that we've got more than just me offering to mentor, I've gone ahead
and integrated OpenLayers into the list.

I think we should first wait for Google to announce it (any day now). In 
the mean time we can get organized (list projects ideas, mentors, etc). 
Maybe even make a flyer which can be distributed by the local chapters.


See my previous mail on this subject.

[OSGeo-Discuss] Google Summer of Code 2008

2008-02-20 Thread Wolf Bergenheim

Hello fellow OSGeoers!

Google is about to announce summer of code 2008, and this year I'd like 
to be a bit more prepared.


So for this reason I have updated our old SoC Wiki page [1] with 
information for this year.


Each project should now start to think of ideas and also who their 
mentors should be.


We should also decide on a uniform way to review the student 
applications. Do we need/want to have an entry exam? A few questions 
about gis and some simple generic programming task? Do you have other ideas?


As for the ideas themselves it seems that the trend is to have not very 
detailed but not too generic ideas either. These semi-generic ideas 
should get the creative juices of the students to flow, which should 
help us in finding the best and the brightest. I think this is good 
advice, it will allow us to judge the applications also on the base of 
what the students come up with.


Also we should create a wiki page for each application we find even a 
bit interesting to flesh it out during the review period.


In the Google SoC wiki page [2] they have some very good advice. If you 
want to be a mentor, be sure to read them, then talk among your selves 
and decide on who the mentor(s) should be. Google recommends 2 mentors 
per student (plus 1 generic backup mentor), but that depends a bit on 
the mentors (and students), and if you are going to have a summer vacation.


So project mentors or people interested in SoC, please read [1] and [2] 
and maybe start working on the idea page of your project.

Looking forward to another Summer of Code,
