Re: GSOC - Summer of Code, on Beam?

I think that's a great idea if we can find good candidates. Do we have to register the project to be able to receive applications from students?

For students interested you should do the complete process via the
GSoC website and look for the ‘gsoc’ label.

For committers who want to mentor students you have to subscribe into
the GSoC website, but also to the mentors@ mailing list, where you
should fill the proposal through a document shared there (and yes this
is not documented at all, need to fix that). This document is prepared
by the ASF because is the full organization (not the project) who
requests the participation. Sadly I was not aware of this process and
I missed the Apache deadline (some days before the GSoC deadline) last
year and for that reason my proposal did not get accepted. So pay
attention to that Pablo (or the others that want to mentor some

Hi Austin!
Thanks a lot for surfacing this. I participated in GSOC as a student a
couple times, and loved it. This being my first time around as a committer,
I'm excited to try and help.

I think, for starters, it may be good to find issues in JIRA to label with
"gsoc", so please everyone who knows of good candidate project issues,
label them with "gsoc".

And then we can find mentors for these issues, and start helping students
in the application process.

Would it make sense to have any GSOC students for next summer work on
Beam?  Do we have some candidate things that would be suitable and
sufficiently discrete projects?

Initial applications for organizations not even open for about a month,
though thought worth getting a sense from the group.

Hi Pablo!
I am a junior majoring in CS and interested in Apache Beam and data process. I hope to >participate in GSOC and work on Beam next summer. Could you give me some advice on
how to prepare for it? Thanks a lot.
