Hello folks, it is time to start thinking of tasks you would like
students to do this fall-winter. Remember, these tasks are for teens
who are dealing with schoolwork and teen life, so they need to be
small enough to be done within a day or two.
In addition, we always need "beginner" tasks, for kids who are working
in open source for the first time. Mentoring these can range from
frustrating to rewarding, and I urge all of you to think of a few of
them. You can schedule your tasks for when you have time to mentor.
We'll need tasks not only in coding, but also Documentation /
Training, Outreach / Research, Quality Assurance and User Interface.

We are pleased to announce Google Summer of Code 2017, the 13th
straight year of the program.
The GSoC 2017 timeline has been updated with next year's important
dates. More information including some changes to the Program Rules
will be updated in early November on the program site.
Organizations -- If you would like to apply for the 2017 program
please start thinking about the projects you would like students to
work on and also reach out to your community members to ask if they
would like to be mentors for the program.
We are looking forward to another exciting year of GSoC!
Today we also announced the Google Code-in 2016 contest that will be
open for past GSoC mentoring organizations to apply to be a part of
this exciting 7 week contest bringing teenagers into the open source
community. Organization applications are open for GCI from October
24th - November 7th. GCI opens for student participants on November
