Google Code-in/2018

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Google Code-in 2018 is over. 765 Wikimedia task instances (80 of them "get onto IRC" tasks) were successfully completed thanks to 199 students and 39 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. Read Google's announcement. The Wikimedia Foundation has participated since 2013.

The Google Code-in 2018 contest takes place from October 23 to December 13, 2018. Wikimedia's organization admins this year are Andre, Derick, Étienne, Florian, Isaac, and Reedy.

List of Wikimedia mentors[edit]

Please be patient with mentors. Mentors are humans. They 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. Do 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 about learning how FOSS development works. It is not about the number of tasks that you complete.
