Google Code-in/2017

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Google Code-in 2017 is over. 760 Wikimedia tasks (206 of them "get onto IRC" tasks) were successfully completed thanks to 300 students and 51 mentors. Thanks everybody!

Google Code-in is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make free and open source software (FOSS) development possible. Students must complete tasks, one at a time. It is sponsored and run by Google. Wikimedia has participated since 2013 and also takes part in 2017. In 2017, the organization admins are Andre, FlorianSW, John, Reedy, and Srishti.

The Google Code-in 2017 contest runs from November 28, 2017 to January 17, 2018 (see the full timeline).

List of Wikimedia mentors[edit]

Please be patient when seeking actions from mentors. Mentors are humans who eventually leave their computers to sleep, work, study. They might be in different timezones than you. It can take your mentor(s) up to 36 hours to review the work that you have submitted. You should be patient and should not ask for a review of your work after only a few hours of waiting. Google Code-In is about the quality of your contributions and learning how FOSS development works, not about the number of tasks that you have completed.
