Summer of Code programs


« Back to Developers

Public Lab has received support for students to work on Public Lab software projects via Google's Summer of Code program -- 2017 is our fourth great year of open source coding! In 2017 we also joined the Rails Girls Summer of Code program.

This is a key way that we are able to develop our collaborative platform (this site) as well as other Public Lab coding projects.

2017's program has wrapped up; Rails Girls Summer of Code ends at the end of September. Please see (and update) our Ideas page to start preparing for 2018 -- it's never too early!

We especially welcome contributions from people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software!

Mentoring

What does it mean to be a mentor?

Mentors check in with a student at least once per week roughly from May-August, and offer some project management guidance and encouragement... while relying on the plots-dev list and the @publiclab/reviewers group on GitHub to provide code-specific input, so that we share the burden of specific technical support.

This means that to be a mentor you don't necessarily need to know how to code -- we need mentors who know Public Lab's community and practices well, and who can encourage students to speak up when they get stuck, and to ask the community for input and testing of their work. Students often get stuck when they don't know how something should look, or how a feature might be used by the community -- contextual info!

If you're interested in being a mentor, email the developers list or jeff@publiclab.org -- and read over our software outreach resources to get an idea of how we work!

Some more resources on mentoring:


Communication

We do occasional chat or video sessions, and mentors rely on each other quite a bit, in the chatroom and on the plots-gsoc list.
