It's once again that time of year where we suggest ideas for students for the Google Summer of Code. It is also time for you to step forward and volunteer to mentor a Summer of Code student.
Remember, Ideas can be about Plone, Guillotina, Zope, Volto, and add-ons to those.
The main requirements are:
- the idea should be concrete, with some clear goals
- achievable within the allocated timespace (a student gets just under 3 months to work on it)
- and it needs mentors to implement.
That doesn't mean you cannot suggest an idea if you can't mentor, but only ideas that will attract mentors will be viable.
For mentors, you need not feel that you have to be an expert in the code in order to provide mentorship. Mentors are there also to help students find the right questions to ask, where to ask them, and whom to ask them of. If you feel comfortable talking with other community members and making introductions, mentoring is for you!
So, consider this thread your brainstorm location, and let those brains start storming!
