Mentor, Google Code-In

Yay ! Selected as a mentor for Google Code-In, is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make open source software development possible. The Google Code-in 2013 contest runs from November 18, 2013 to January 6, 2014.

These tasks include:

Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code

Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing documents and helping others learn more

Outreach/Research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing or studying problems and recommending solutions

Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality

User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction

It would be fun adding tasks, mentoring students from all over the world, guiding them to solve tasks and making young developers step their first foot in the world of open source development.

Its just 24 hrs for the program to begin... Quite excited.. Stay tuned for more updates.. Will be blogging my experiences and participation in BRL-CAD soon..

Signing off.
