#141 [Other/Talk-2hr] Fedora Summer Coding 2019 Project Showcase + Meetup
Closed: Resolved a day ago by riecatnor. Opened 11 months ago by jflory7.

What is your proposal?

The Fedora Summer Coding project showcase and meet-up is a recurring event each year that does the following:

  • Gives a platform to Summer Coding interns to present their accomplishments and work to Fedora community
  • Share knowledge and wisdom among mentors and empower more people in Fedora community to participate as mentors
  • Provide unstructured time to network and meet others involved with Fedora Summer Coding

The goals for this session are to celebrate the accomplishments of the numerous interns working on Fedora and to build up the Fedora Summer Coding initiative. This gives interns a chance to share their work with a wider audience and to invite more people to participate as mentors or admins in future rounds of Fedora's Summer Coding initiatives like Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Outreachy.

Proposed schedule

  1. Introduction to Fedora Summer Coding programs (GSoC, Outreachy)
  2. Project showcase (10m presentations by each intern on project work)
  3. Mentor panel
    • Best practices on mentoring / advice to future mentors
    • How to become a mentor for a Fedora Summer Coding project
  4. Free discussion / Q&A (unstructured time for off-stage conversations)

Who in addition to the speaker needs to be in the room for this to succeed?

Multiple people are needed for this session to succeed:

Is this a…

  • 2 hours: Talk

Anything else we need to know?

We need the following arrangements:

  1. Table(s) with 4-6 chairs arranged in row at front facing audience (for mentors to sit at during panel)
  2. A/V setup

See #94 for last year's accepted proposal.

Who are you?

  • Name: Justin W. Flory
  • FAS ID: @jflory7

I would like to be actively involved in this session! :)
thanks @jflory7 for taking the lead. Please count me in and let me know how we are planning this one :)

@sumantrom Awesome, I edited your name in. :smile: I can definitely use your help! Once Flock gets a little closer, I'd like to follow up with project mentors to get a head count of mentors and interns, and then come up with some questions for a mentors panel.

I'm aiming to start on this halfway through July or so. I'll sync up with you, @amsharma, @jonatoni, and @siddharthvipul1 around then. :)

I will be attending the Flock-2019 and certainly will take part in the session. :)

I too would like to participate! :D

I will attend as well :white_check_mark:

I will be attending flock!

I'll be attending flock :)

I'll be at Flock and would like to participate in this session unless there'd be a conflicting session running in parallel.

I will be there too! :)

Count me in, see you there ...

I'll be around assuming nothing else comes up
