Google Code-In 2015 Task Organization Wiki

You are viewing a wiki page. You are welcome to join the group and then edit it. Be bold!

Utilize this wiki to document, add, and organize potential tasks for Google's Code-In 2015 contest. We're hoping for at least 100 tasks for our application due sometime in October. If you want to mentor the task, add your name. If you DON'T want to be a mentor, leave the field blank. Current goal is to have tasks in the expected 5 required categories for our application...

*Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
*Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing documents and helping others learn more
*Outreach/Research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing or studying problems and recommending solutions
*Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality
*User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction

How to think of tasks?
*Tasks from previous years/organizations are listed at legacy code-in websites.

Awesome, that's what you call an early start. Lets consider moving the task organization to a Google spreadhseet instead of this wiki, similar to what we did last year.

Google Spreadsheet

Copied last year's spreadsheet here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VTm7M3hEW2akE4VqbaVjaS7hF0J12CGA...) in case we do want to use Google spreadsheet.
