Summer Coding SIG
Purpose: Oversee, define, and improve on the Fedora Project's work with students contributing as part of their classwork or summer internship, and do so in a way that provides a general framework re-deployable by other open source projects seeking to do the same.
What are we doing?
We're working on the execution of summer coding initiatives within Fedora. Effectively, what we're trying to do is take the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) model and generalize and expand it to the notion of $FUNDING_SOURCE Summer of Code by providing sample implementations of alternative values of $FUNDING_SOURCE alongside our continued participation in GSoC.
For a 7-minute video explanation, see Summer Of Code Swimchart: Now With More Generic.
While our efforts began with the Google Summer of Code, we are now working with several other sponsoring organizations to maximize the opportunities for students to work on free and open source projects under our guidance.
Refer to the Summer Coding Sponsors page for more.
How can you help?
Right now, join our #Communication channels and introduce yourself and what you're interested in - we're working together to define more formal roles for those who want to know their time investment beforehand. That discussion will be carried out on the list, and the more formal roles will be announced on the Fedora mailing lists and planet when they are ready.
