If you’re *not* in school, interested in tinypy, and want to help out, you can become a mentor!Â I’m working via the PSF to get tinypy some SOC help.Â Since I announced this a few days ago I’ve already got four students who want to do SOC projects on tinypy!
Reasons to become a SOC-python-tinypy mentor:
- you want to help out tinypy – if multiple projects get accepted, it would be great to have some people helping me out!Â I don’t think I could mentor them all.
- you want to help out python – the more mentors python has, the more projects will be sponsored :)Â This will increase the odds that tinypy gets some slots.
- you want to help out students – this is the Summer of Code, after all!Â It’s a great opportunity to help new coders get some great experience.
- you want to help out open source – the SOC gets students involved in Open Source :)Â Several of the students who have contacted me say this is the first time they’ve been interested in Open Source.
Qualifications for mentors:
- you aren’t a student.
- you know python and C reasonably well.
- you want to help out!
How to join:
- contact me, so I know who wants to be a tinypy mentor.
- join the python mentor’s mailing list.
- join the Google SOC mentors as part of the PSF.
