Applying as a mentoring organization for google summer of code?

Applying as a mentoring organization for google summer of code?

From:

Hello Shoesers,

I've been pondering on the thought of the shoes organization applying 
for google summer of code 
(http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2013).

Google Summer of Code, simply put, is a program where students get paid 
to work on open source software. As I really want to see a shoes4 
release this year, this would be awesome. Mentoring organizations apply 
to be funded by the program and then students can apply to work on 
projects of the mentoring organizations. They will then work on the 
project for 3 months with some help.

So application for mentoring organizations starts on the 18th of march 
and ends on the 29th of march (full time table: 
http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/events/google/gsoc2013). The actual 
coding would actually happen form mid June until the end of September

*What would we need?*
2 Administrators responsible for organizational tasks and a group of 
mentors that would mentor students, helping them and monitoring their 
progress. A mentor would actually get 500$ at the end of the summer of 
code. There is quite some more to a mentoring organization approval 
though: 

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2013/help_page#2._What_should_a_mentoring_organization

As an important side note, I want to do google summer of code this year, 
it's one of the reasons I won't write my Master Thesis next semester. So 
I can't be a mentor or an administrator this year. Personally I'd also 
love to be a gsoc student for Shoes to make a release happen. I don't 
know if I'd be allowed to due to my high involvement with the project 
and me suggesting joining it ;-) However whatever helps Shoes is good.

I also think that it might be better to *apply together with 
HacketyHack,* because an application that teaches children how to code 
is much more likable and goal oriented than "just" a GUI toolkit. But 
work on shoes4 and porting HacketyHack to shoes4 when the time has come 
is definitely a top priority of the project right now. And I believe 
pretty much all the hacketyhack people are also on this list. But I'll 
also send an email to that mailing list.

So what do you say? Are you up for this?

Shoes on!
Tobi

PS: there are much more FAQs to be answered, I tried to be brief here

+1.  I'll volunteer to be a mentor.  I am already registered with ACM
Mentornet and I have mentored several university students in the past few
years.

Um... my wording was suggestive.  I am an ACM Mentornet Mentor.  That has
no affiliation with GSOC (AFAIK).

Jay cool and thanks! Plus nice to hear from you again Peter :-)

I also forgot to mention that there is also hacketyhack work independent 
from shoes4: I believe we got open bugs and there is also the 
hackety.com website.

Cheers,
Tobi

Hackety was a Ruby Summer of Code project, and it helped a ton. :+1:

Sounds like a great idea. I just finished mentoring ten University 
students that were learning agile methodologies and I had load of fun. 
I'd be up for doing something like that again.

How many students would we be looking for?

So if I count correctly we have 3 mentors, which is awesome. *Thank you.

*Now what we would *need is 2 administrators*, I believe that 
administrators may be mentors at the same time. But I don't know for 
sure. An administrator is basically the main contact point for Google 
(supposed to answer within 48 hours) and manages the process (submits 
the proposal etc.). Here is a list of their duties according to google 
(just 6 duties): 

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2013/help_page#3._What_is_the_role_of_an_organization

Furthermore we'd need to fill out an organization application. This 
includes general stuff about the organization, but also backup plans for 
how to deal with disappearing mentors/studetns. And how we selected 
mentors. Most importantly it is a *list of ideas for students to work 
on. *Here is a general list of what that application includes: 

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2013/help_page#2._What_should_a_mentoring_organization

So if we'd find 2 administrators we could start a google docs document 
or so with ideas and filling out the application. Deadline is the *29th 
of March*, so we should get going rather quickly :-)

Cheers,
Tobi

Yep,

and therefore we already started some work on the document, please 
correct it, add to it and resolve the marked issues :-)

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bq4mmDRrS2X8s_ONP4yP_gbKkpmUMDZlnqRK1i_baRM/edit#

Also, most importantly it would be awesome if you could contribute ideas 
or detail the existing ones here: 
https://github.com/shoes/shoes4/wiki/GSOC-2013-idea-list
Or delete ideas that you think are not cool/big enough whatever... was 
just a couple of things that came to my mind.

OK, lots of additions/revisions to the google doc and to the ideas list. 
Jump in there, folks. Davor, I think the fact that you got involved with 
the project through GSOC, and are still super active, is a major plus for 
us. I tried to highlight that a little in the google doc, but maybe you'd 
like to expand a little?

Thanks for kickstarting this!

I rephrased some paragraphs, and then pretty much rewrote the part
about "why are you applying". However I didn't feel comfortable with
just overwriting it, so here's what I've come up with.

https://gist.github.com/arnebrasseur/5259274

Not too wordy / over the top?

I like the thing you wrote, Arne. But I think having Hacketyhack in the 
first first paragraph will add to our appeal.

So, basically my suggestion is something like

~rougly the first paragraph as it is, in terms of content~

~what you wrote~

~short paragraph about hacketyhack and why it's cool/important~

~rest of what you wrote~

I also added "Bloopsaphone for Shoes 4" to the ideas list, which is
probably too exotic when we have so much higher priority stuff to do,
but it was all I could come up with :)

Any rules of thumb there, better to have lots of ideas in the list or
just a handful of good ones?

Oh, yeah, we should definitely add video. Sound works, but video has 
always been a problem. Bloops had become a liability because of the I 
maintained c extension it depended on. But it's a fun feature. I think the
idea is to show

1. There is stuff to do
2. We have thought about it  
3. We can offer compelling, bounded projects to a variety of interests

So just fyi, jRuby just submitted their application this morning. Shoes 
thankfully is also on their ideas list 
(https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/Google-Summer-of-Code-2013) but 
with a bit outdated information. I'll go ahead and fix this.

Maybe in the future we should get in touch with them earlier... well 
we're all learning here. :-)

OK, so one major thing: who will be primary admin and who will be backup?
That's the only problem I saw.

One other nice-to-have would be to put jruby down as a voucher project.

Other than that, looks gold from my angle. :-)

HI Folks,
Sorry for the delayed response.  You all had some quick conversations, and
I've been buried this week in work transitions.

I am interested and volunteer to be both Admin and Mentor.

I don't see on the GSOC registration site exactly how to affiliate my
profile with Shoes or how to truly register as a Shoes Admin/Mentor.
Could one of you tell me how to correctly affiliate my prfofile?

Congrats on the application.  It's all "admin" from here. :)

Kindest Regards,

You register here, using the "Register" button

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2013

I had a hard time finding it too :)

I think the affiliation with Shoes happens when the project lists its 
admins on the application.

As I haven't heard from Peter and you have been pretty active plus 
you're an alumnus, which is a great example for keeping people in the 
community I'd vote you :-)

Seconded! Let's reread it one more time, and then you can submit?

I sent them a mail a few days ago, but they still haven't responded yet.

That's the same list they were using last year, they haven't gotten around
to properly updating it yet.

Ok, so I'm interested in mentoring, and I missed this email.

And I can be a backup admin, can't be a primary because I will be absent
for a week in July.

Lets get rocking, google doc is here, if you have a google account you can
edit

I don't know, we have to write down ideas and students can submit their 
own ideas. Ultimately it depends on how many students apply for a 
project in this context. As our mentoring capabilities are limited I'd 
say we'd be aiming for ~2 students, as we have to have a backup plan if 
one of the mentors drops out for one reason or another. I couldn't find 
any information atm if a mentor is allowed to have more than one mentee.
