GSoC 2018 Potential Student and Mentor Meet & Greet

Let’s use this thread for general information for students who are interested in Google Summer of Code 2018. We have not yet applied, nobody has…but intend to.

We are still formulating our project ideas, but have taken the projects we did not complete from last year and migrated them to this year.

You can view our current project ideas here. There will be more added in the coming weeks.

Hi! I’m Anirudh. I’m a final year student in Computer Science Engineering. Looking forward to contributing and taking part in GSoC. I have a decent array of skills in web development and am excited to apply those and contribute to the organization.

Hi folks, Thank you for selecting our organization to engage with. Our history with the GSOC and GCI programs has been of great benefit to our mission, and I like to think that the students have enjoyed themselves too. This is exciting to me, as I know that many of you will be friends I grow to value as we work together in the future.

We are easy-going folks here, but GSOC seats are of limited availability, and competition for those seats has proven to be pretty intense. For whatever reasons, our projects have attracted a lot of amazingly skilled and dedicated Students/Interns. We were extremely lucky to get four (4!!!) seats last year. We were prepared to get only one among all the proposals and the three active projects/repos.

I couldn’t say why our organization garnered so much high-quality interest, but if you ask me, the reason why we were allotted four seats for GSOC2017 seems very simple: The students and their project proposals were flat out excellent.

In all honesty, there may be projects out there in which you will find less competition. I actually lost sleep before the selection numbers came out last year, because so many of our students had put forth so much effort to earn a spot, and I was thinking that we would have tell most of them that they were not selected, and choosing the “best one” would have been completely arbitrary. Somehow, amazingly, no such disaster took place.

So what is the key here? Simple. Do as students for 2017 did. Learn the code base. Participate. Learn the practical application of the systems we support here. Target your proposal. Make the strongest argument for your proposal you know how to do. Build a relationship with the other developers here. Build a relationship with the other GSOC applicants. By doing this, I think that may make us a stronger case for being allotted more GSOC spots. If there is a friendly seat-stealing competition, let it be our organization that snatches them from less important projects, not one of our students from another!

HealthCare for Humanity! Viva LibreHealth EHR!

-PS: Please, as you introduce yourself, if you can provide a GitHUB handle as well, that would be very nice.

Looking forward to up my contribution to Librehealth and ultimately wish to participate in GSOC 2018.


@mayank8318 you will find a good fit for the radiology and toolkit project given your experience with java

Please work on this task described here REST JSON to FHIR JSON Mapping Implementation

We would like to see your own implementation of this , and you contribute to the discussion on this thread as well as working on other gsoc tagged tickets
