GSoC for Partners and Communities
52°North offers all partners to act as a an umbrella organisation respectively the contact hub with Google ("organisation administrator"). After finding mentors from the communities and partner organisations we derive a list of project ideas together with the mentors. 52°North staff will provide support during the application evaluation, the mentoring phase and the project evalution, and also organise backup mentors in the event the original mentor cannot continue the program.
Wondering what has been achieved during the previous GSoC years, and still not sure if it is worth the effort?
- Take a look at the previous project ideas - it is really not hard to get involved: https://wiki.52north.org/bin/view/Projects/GSoC#Project_Ideas
- Read the blog about GSoC to learn about enganged students and great outcomes: http://blog.52north.org/category/gsoc/
It is important to point at the student eligibility rules (see Melange), which prohibit participation of employees of organisations affiliated with 52°North to participate in GSoC with 52°North.
