Drupal Google Code-In Outreach

The Google Code-In recently ended and GSoC applications are closed. Now it's time to start preparing for next year's competition. One large problem regarding the contest is that there is not much involvement within development communities, which means many potential students aren't being introduced to the world of open source. This shows that Drupal, as a community, needs to encourage the future generation of programmers to contribute to open source, which this contest does a great job of doing.

How can we find and encourage these interested students?

How to write a good Google Code-in task proposal

Guidelines

  • The goal of Code-in is to get students interested and involved in open source, not to get free child labour. ;) The tasks should reflect that. Try and form your tasks around ideas that are fun, interesting, of high importance for the project, and/or would look great on a college application.
