Google has announced a program called Google Season of Docs. I have known about this program since the GSoC Mentor Summit back in October. This is like Google Summer of Code, but focused on technical writing and documentation.
Spend three months working closely with an open source community. Bring your technical writing expertise to the project’s documentation. Learn about open source and new technologies. Add more skills to your resume.
Important dates from the official Program Timeline:
- April 2, 2019 at 20:00 UTC - April 23, 2019 at 20:00 UTC: Mentoring Organizations can submit applications
- April 30, 2019 at 12:00 UTC: Google publishes the list of accepted mentoring organizations
