I recently received confirmation from Symmetry that SAOC 2022 is 
a go!

SOAC is open to anyone over 18 who is interested in helping to 
strengthen the D ecosystem. Preference is given to undergraduate 
and postgraduate students, but anyone is welcome to apply.

Participants are paid a small stipend across three monthly 
milestones to work at least 20 hours per week on a project that's 
beneficial to the D ecosystem. Then, at the end of the fourth and 
final milestone, at least one participant is awarded with a final 
$1000 payment and a free trip to the next real-world DConf.

Given that we had no DConf in 2020 and 2021, one SAOC awardee 
each from the 2019 and 2020 editions, and two from the 2021 
edition, are attending DConf '22. If you apply to SAOC 2022, then 
it could be you hanging out on a free trip to DConf '23.

Even if you don't receive the final award, SAOC opens doors to 
internships and jobs, as some of our past participants have 
learned. It also provides you with material to present at a 
future DConf: one of our DConf '22 speakers was a runner-up who 
wasn't awarded the free trip, but got a free trip anyway when her 
talk was accepted.

We're also looking for potential mentors. Applicants are 
encourage to seek out experienced D programmers to act as mentors 
prior to sending in their applications, but those who don't will 
still have some time to find one if they are accepted. If you are 
interested in mentoring a SAOC participant, please let us know at 
social dlang.org so that we can help match you up with someone if 
the need arises. Mentors receive a one-time payment of $500 at 
the end of the event.

For everyone else, please help us [curate the projects 
repository](https://github.com/dlang/projects/issues). This is a 
list of D ecosystem project ideas in general, but can be a good 
source of ideas for SAOC applicants. Candidate SAOC projects 
should require at least 4 months of work at 20 hours per week, 
and should be tagged with the SAOC tag.

All of the details on everything I've mentioned here can be found 
at the SAOC 2022 page:
