Mentoring for Google Code-in – WikiToLearn

Google Code-in

Google Code-in has just begun. I’ll be mentoring this time. 🙂

If you know any pre-university students who are interested in computers or open source please do inform them about this. Task varies from coding, documentation, training, outreach, research, quality assurance and user interface. Also, students earn prizes for their successful completion of tasks.

What is Google Code-in ?

Google Code-in is a contest by Google to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to open source software development. Since 2010, over 3200 students from 99 countries have completed work in the contest.

What I’ll be doing ?

I’ll be mentoring for tasks under WikiToLearn, KDE organization.
I have published a task related to WikiToLearn community : What can I do for WikiToLearn

I’ll be helping students with code and design for this task.

I have few other tasks in my mind. I may publish them as we move on (based on our progress).

Why I’m doing this ?

Well, I just love open source and like helping others to get into FOSS. And WikiToLearn, KDE is a great community to work with.
I strongly believe in it’s philosophy – “Knowledge only grows if shared”. It feels good to help the younger generation to get into community so that our community grows big.

Join WikiToLearn now and contribute however you can. 🙂
