This year, @ivange94 and myself are excited to be co-administering the Google Code-in 2017 programme. We’ve already put up a talk post for the plans, proposals and open invite and also the GCI 2017 page on Wiki. The preparations to apply and get things going are in full swing from our end
We’re humbled to have received a large amount of requests to mentor for the program from individuals all over. However, we need to ensure that potential mentors are well versed with the OpenMRS development and guidelines so students are guided appropriately. Hence, we have laid down a few criteria that need to be fulfilled in order to mentor.
You are eligible to mentor GCI 2017 if you meet ANY ONE of the following criterion:
- Former GCI Winner, Finalist or Mentor (not restricted to OpenMRS)
- Former GSoC Student or Mentor (not restricted to OpenMRS)
- Experienced/Active/Long term members involved with OpenMRS.
Of course, we do believe that you may not fall under any of these criteria and still wish to mentor. We’d love to have mentors coming in from other open source communities as mentioned as well as others with varied experience in Open Source. In this case, please reach out to us.
Here are the current individuals who have volunteered to mentor:
Daniel Kayiwa - @dkayiwa
Jai Tatia - @jtatia
Jude Niroshan - @judeniroshan
Sanatt Abrol - @mavrk
Reuben Varghese - @reubenv
Chanuka Wijayakoon - @merovingienne
Suthagar Kailayapathy - @suthagar23
Burke Mamlin - @burke
Collin Grimm - @grimm
Shivang Nagaria - @shivtej
Mira Yang - @myang4570
Yusuf Karim - @ykarim250
Chaitya Shah - @cshah
Gayan Weerakutti - @gayanw
We’d absolutely love to have more individuals volunteer to mentor. Ideally, we’d like to have mentors distributed across timezones to ensure that student tasks are effectively reviewed within 24 hours. This is a crucial requirement for GCI which ensures that the program proceeds smoothly and students aren’t stalled for reviews.
Please leave a comment below if you’d like to mentor and name isn’t mentioned here (We’re missing plenty of awesome people yet!) and fill up this mentor form. I’ll keep updating the name to this list as we go. Looking forward to interacting with all of you during this season of GCI.
