Wikimedia has participated in Outreachy since 2013. In this program, we connect people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software in a three-month, full-time internship and runs two editions every year. It is overseen by Wikimedia's Developer Relations team. Wikimedia provides funding for Outreachy internships.

Candidates[edit]

If you want to be a candidate for this, you must read and follow Outreach programs/Life of a successful project#Coming up with a proposal. In summary:

Find, or create, a Phabricator project task that interests you, and create a subtask of it that as your proposal task.

Repeating some of that here,

  • You should create an account on Phabricator using your wiki username (Create a wiki account if you don't have one)
  • find an interesting project task in phab:tag/possible-tech-projects (or elsewhere)
  • click 'Create Subtask' link to create a new Phabricator task for your proposal:
    • it will be "Blocked By" the task you are applying for
    • and will be associated with the project of the task you're applying for
    • title it "Outreachy proposal for project task", replacing project task with the name of the task you are applying for
    • add the project for the mentor program (#Outreachy-Round-11) and remove the project for the tech projects (#Possible-Tech-Projects)
    • use the Outreach programs/Application template to create a solid proposal task
  • Edit and improve your proposal task until the deadline. A well-structured proposal increases your chances of being accepted. Sample proposals (from our past rounds): T93106 and T76199.

To see candidates, view all tasks on the #Outreachy-Round-11 board; the names under "Proposal" tasks are the candidates.
