Google Summer of Code 2015, call for project idea and mentors.

Raoul J P Bonnal
Hi All

We have LESS than a week to submit the application for the Google Summer of Code 2015, and complete the application.

20 February:

19:00 UTC

Mentoring organization application deadline.

23 - 27 February:

Google program administrators review organization applications.

2 March:

19:00 UTC

List of accepted mentoring organizations published on the Google Summer of Code 2015 site.

OBF is going to apply to be a mentoring organization for Google Summer of
Code 2015. To make the ideas list more digestible for Google's reviewers,
we consolidated all of the Bio* projects' ideas into a single page on the
OBF wiki:

Me (Raoul J.P. Bonnal) and Francesco Strozzi are the OrgAdmin, thanks to the OBF Board.

We encourage each mentor of an affiliated sub-project to fill in/add project
to the above page. Please report directly to me([hidden email]) your availability as a mentor
for this year. Student from past years can mentor and propose an idea, if supported by
their community.

Last year we introduced the Cross Projects, i.e.
those involving two or more programming languages or Bio* project
communities and/or can be useful to many languages
( web APIs reusable from any language ). The first 2015 cross project
is and you can find the proposal here:

This page is the one we listed in our application. It is separate from the
OBF wiki page for general GSoC information:

If OBF is accepted for GSoC 2015, it would make sense to point each Bio*
project's GSoC wiki page to this one, instead of duplicating the content.

As another way to interact with potential students, we've created a Google
Plus page for OBF:

And a G+ community for OBF's GSoC activities:

Feel free to forward this message to your colleagues or other possible orgs that want to join us.

Thanks to Eric Talevich, the GSoC 2014 main OrgAdmin, he did a great work and provide a lot of docs and useful hints.
