Hi there, We are quickly approaching the Google of Summer of code again. The Zope Foundation's application needs to be in soon.
In order to do a good application, we need to have a good selection of mentors. So, if you're a Zope developer and you want to mentor a student this summer, please add yourself to the list here: http://wiki.zope.org/gsoc/SummerOfCode2008 Don't wait: the Zope Foundation's application needs to be in *very* soon (by the 11th of march). The more mentors we have the better a chance we stand in getting projects accepted. Being a mentor isn't difficult and it can be very rewarding. All four of the students involved in the summer of code (Paul Carduner who worked on ajax for z3c.form, Nikhil N who worked on Zope 3 python 2.5 support, Uli Fouquet who worked on Grok's introspection UI and Luciano Ramalho who worked on a Grok-based application) are still active in our community, which we consider a great success! Being mentor is a privilege, and also a responsibility. We do expect mentors to stay in regular touch with their students. This means email and normal involvement on project mailing lists, but also in addition to this a weekly hour or so on irc and/or voice. We also have a few simple reporting requirements so that your mentor coordinator (yours truly) knows what's up and can solve any potential problems. Sign up and become a mentor! Everybody else (including mentors, students and others): * suggest projects, also on the same wiki page * suggest other mentors. Tell people who you *want* to be mentors to sign up. Everybody likes to be told they can be mentors, so tell them in public and get them to sign up. Students: * Mark the sign-up period on your calendar: it starts march 24. If we get accepted, then is the time to sign up. Regards, Martijn _______________________________________________ Zope-Announce maillist - Zope-Announce@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce Zope-Announce for Announcements only - no discussions (Related lists - Users: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope Developers: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
