Wikimedia is among the 17 organizations in Google Code-in (GCI) 2016!
GCI starts on November 28th. It's a contest for 13-17 year old students
working on small tasks and a great opportunity to let new contributors
make progress and help with smaller tasks on your To-Do list!
There are currently 46 open Language Engineering tasks marked as easy:
What we want you to do:
BECOME A MENTOR:
1. Go to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Google_Code-in_2016 and add
yourself to the mentor's table.
2. Get an invitation email to register on the contest site.
PROVIDE SMALL TASKS:
We want your tasks in the following areas: code, outreach/research,
documentation/training, quality assurance, user interface/design.
(Please note that translation tasks are not allowed.)
1. Create a Phabricator task (which would take you 2-3h to complete) or
pick an existing Phabricator task you'd mentor.
2. Add the "Google-Code-In-2016" project tag.
3. Add a comment "I will mentor this in #GCI2016".
Looking for task ideas? Check the "easy" tasks in Phabricator:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Annoying_little_bugs offers links.
Make sure to cover expectations and deliverables in your task.
And once the contest starts on Nov 28, be ready to answer and review
