digitalmars.D.announce - Preparing for Google Summer of Code 2021

Recently, Google put out an announcement on the GSoC mailing list about their plans for GSoC 2021. They're doing things differently this time. A big change is that the event is being cut down to 10 weeks, with 2 evaluations rather than 3. That means we will need to think of project ideas that fit into a shorter time period than in the past. Everyone, please start thinking of suitable projects and submitting your ideas to the dlang/projects repository: https://github.com/dlang/projects Mentor stipends on the new schedule are set at $400, so it's not much less than before. We encourage those of you with solid D experience, or domain experience related to any of the potential projects in the repository above, to put yourself forward as a potential mentor. They're also relaxing the eligibility requirements to allow participation from a broader range of applicants: "In 2020 there are many ways students are learning and we want to acknowledge that so we will be allowing students who are 18 years old AND currently enrolled (or accepted into) a post-secondary academic program as of May 17, 2021 or have graduated from a post-secondary academic program between December 1, 2020 and May 17, 2021 to apply to the GSoC program. What this means is that now the program will be open to folks participating in a variety of different academic programs, not just accredited university programs. This includes licensed coding camps, community colleges, and many other programs that may not be accredited yet but are post-secondary academic programs."
