Potential GSoC Mentors,
R has applied as mentoring organization again this year for Google Summer of Code 2021 (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/)
. While we won't know for a while if we have been accepted, we hope that we will be accepted again this year as we have been in past years.
If you are an author or an R package, or have research using R that might benefit from additional paid summer coding help, I encourage you to consider positng a project idea to the R GSoC wiki:
start by copying the template here:
into a separate project idea page, and add your project idea to the table on the first link above.
In the coming couple of weeks, Google will evaluate organizations for inclusion in GSoC. As part of that evaluation, Google reviews organization's project ideas. So it is good for the R community to have project ideas in place for Google and potential students to review.
Your project idea should encompass approximately 175 hours of paid work by a student over 10 weeks. You should have at least two mentors for your project. Please reach out to us with questions!
