Hi everyone,

Blender has been accepted as a mentoring organization for this years 
Google Summer of Code [1].
We can select contributors for a part-time programming job this summer.

Everyone at the age of 18 or older, who is new to Open Source can 
participate this year, it's not limited to students anymore.

The purpose of GSoC is to introduce open source communities to new 
Blender has plenty of specialist areas where we need to find top
talent to contribute to. Attracting contributors for a GSoC project,
and keeping them on board, is the best result we can strive for.

Each year we need mentors to help students. Google encourages a large
mentor team, it's possible to have multiple mentors per student.

Acceptable mentors are Blender developers who contributed code in the
past, and who are capable of reviewing commits for students in the areas
they work on.

Applying for mentorship can done by emailing me (in person) or sending 
me a message on blender.chat.

Best regards,
