Hello all,

I am looking for someone to join me as a co-mentor for the Outreachy 2022 December cohort. I’m a former Outreachy intern and currently working as a software engineer with the Technical Engagement team at WMF.

The project is detailed in this Phabricator task[0]. It will be a web app similar to the tool Citation Hunt[1]. If you have some experience developing web applications, this could be a good opportunity to get involved on the mentoring side. You don’t have to know everything, as long as you have sufficient skills in either frontend, backend, or design. New mentors are welcome!

The time commitment is around 5h/week from December to March, and during the contribution and applicant selection phase in October.

You are welcome to email me with any questions, or ask them directly in this thread.

Also, if you aren’t interested yourself but know someone who might be, please spread the word <3

Hello everyone,

Wikimedia is participating in the winter edition of this year's Outreachy <> [1] (December 2022–March 2023)! The deadline to submit projects on the Outreachy website is September 30th, 2022. We are currently working on a list of interesting project ideas. If you have some ideas for coding or non-coding (design, documentation, translation, outreach, research) projects, share them here: <> [2].

About the Outreachy program

Outreachy offers three-month internships to work remotely in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), coding, and non-coding projects with experienced mentors. These internships run twice a year–from May to August and December to March. Interns are paid a stipend of USD 7000 for the three months of work. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship. This program is open to both students and non-students. Outreachy expressly invites the following people to apply:
* Women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.
* Anyone who faces under-representation, systematic bias, or discrimination in the technology industry in their country of residence.
* Residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

See a blog post highlighting the experiences and outcomes of interns who participated in a previous round of Outreachy with Wikimedia <> [3]

Tips for mentors for proposing projects

* Follow this task description template when you propose a project in Phabricator: <> [4]. Add #Outreachy-Round-25 tag.
* Project should require an experienced developer ~15 days and a newcomer ~3 months to complete.
* Each project should have at least two mentors, with one of them holding a technical background.
* Ideally, the project has no tight deadlines, a moderate learning curve, and fewer dependencies on Wikimedia's core infrastructure. Projects addressing the needs of a language community are most welcome.
* If you don't have an idea in mind and would like to pick one from an existing list, check out these projects: <> [4]
* To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of mentors, visit our resources on <> [5].

We look forward to your participation!
