A couple of people have put their names forward as potential mentors for GSOC 2019, but I need more! If you are interested in participating, please let me know. Doing so does not guarantee that you will be a part of the event, but we need a large enough pool that when students begin submitting their applications we can have a better chance of matching them up with the mentor who’s a best fit for their project.

Also a reminder — the Wiki page of potential projects for GSOC is still rather light. Please don’t make me have to spend time digging through old ideas to see what’s still valid. If you an idea for a project that is suitable for GSOC, something you’d love to work on but don’t have the time for perhaps, then please add it to the ideas page! Let’s get it fleshed out so potential applicants can have more time to consider what they’d like to work on.

The deadline for organizations to apply is Feb 6. We should hear on Feb 27 if we’re accepted or not. If we are, then students will have until April 9 to submit their applications. It will go by fast, so the sooner we get more ideas on the page the better.
