2 Sites made with Drupal and their Functionality and Usefulness

The first website is . It's functionality is to give information of NCAA basketball. It also lists scores and different brackets of the tournament. The usefullness of the site is to provide information, merchandise, and game tickets. The design of the website looks a bit small, and kind of boring. This site could help me find the locations and times of games, the price of tickets, and information about players or teams.

Once you have created your Drupal account, go to Edit --> Work and add "Google Code-In" as your Organization and "Student" as your Job Title. Notice that the organization field is case sensitive, so you must write "Google Code-In" (not "Google Code-in," Google code-in," etc.).

Ideas to help Drupal promote GSoC/GCI

From GCI Task
"Document 5 ideas to help Drupal promote GSoC/GCI"

  1. Promote on Drupal landing page. Maybe in the monthly post. I see there is a post like "What’s new on - October 2016". So before the contest start about 1-3 months, include the GSoC/GCI news in the post.

  2. Tweet about GSoC/GCI in Drupal official Twitter. Use GSoC/GCI hashtag.

  3. Write interesting stories about finalists from previous years.

  4. Promote GSoC/GCI in Drupal developer documentation. If they have any tasks for students, please add them to GSoC/GCI.

Google Code-in 2015 blogs

In this discussion, I suggest GCI 2015 participants share links to their blogs, where they're writing about Drupal because there are many tasks wich require blogging. As for me, I'm very interested in reading a really good post about Drupal.

It's my blog: Read, discuss and share it with your friends! :)

Also, I have an idea to create a site (with Drupal, of course) wich will collect and aggregate blog post of GCI 2015 participants, news about GCI and another stuff that related to it. What do you think about it?
