Google Code-in/2019

From mediawiki.org

Google Code-in 2019 is over. 715 Wikimedia task instances were successfully completed thanks to 194 students and 43 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. The Wikimedia Foundation has participated since 2013. Read Google's announcement.

The Google Code-in 2019 contest takes place from December 2nd, 2019 to January 23, 2020. Wikimedia's organization admins this year are Andre, Derick, Étienne, Florian, Gopa, Martin.

List of Wikimedia mentors


Please be patient with mentors. Mentors are humans. They sometimes leave their screens to sleep, work, study. They might be in a different time zone than you. Mentor(s) have up to 36 hours to review the work that you have submitted. Please be patient. Do not ask for a review of your work after only a few hours. Google Code-In is about the quality of your contributions and it is about learning how FOSS development works. It is not about the number of tasks that you complete.
