Event Description

After our last experience as a group with the GNOME PERU CHALLENGE, members of our community can do a better job in this new program called “Peru in the way of GSoC 2018”.

Now, the idea is to select 12 Peruvian students students to offer a special technical training during six Sundays during November and December 2017 to apply to the next round of the GSoC through the GNOME and the Fedora project. We are considering C and Javascript o participate with Fedora in the GSoC, and GTK with C and python to apply to GNOME.

* Participating in this program will NOT guarantee a GSoC slot or even necessarily provide preference.
