> Hi everyone,
> It's time of the year again. Looks like GSoC starts earlier each year.
> We just have two more weeks to finish the application!
> I've done all the forms already. I will also check with the team here in
> the studio to make a fun "onboarding" video, explaining where to find
> everything and how to get involved.
> What needs to be done in the next weeks is:
> - get a list of mentor candidates (people who review proposals). Contact
> me!
> - present an ideas page
> To start, I copied most of the ideas over from last year:
> https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/GoogleSummerOfCode/2018/Ideas
> Please check and update! Remember, it's not a feature request listing, it
> should be projects supported by the module teams, with mentors candidates.
> I also want to propose to improve the GSoC experience in some ways:
> - Active recruitment locally on you university or your city - especially
> studios/companies who use Blender can be co-mentoring students as well. Get
> your own well paid intern!
> - Actively recruiting among students who already work with Blender (code).
> - Be more strict to student applicants. They should really bring in
> experience and knowledge.
> - GSoC is not an introduction to become a developer!
> - But we should also keep proposed projects simple and feasible. And it
> has to fit 2.8.
> - Get students to work on projects a mentor is also working on. That way
> mentorship goes more natural.
> Laters,
