Hi all! Given the timing of GCI and our relatively small-ish number of available mentors and tasks, I was able to secure space for us to participate in Google Code-In through the FOSSASIA umbrella organization!
They have set up a staged web site for GCI at https://gci16.fossasia.org/ which will soon become active once the official list of participating organizations are announced on Monday. We will still need to list out all our tasks which will be separately tagged, and we’ll need to make sure the right mentors are registered in the system.
We will include a statement about participation in GCI in our press release as well. Of note, students participating will be from all geographies, not just Asia, and FOSSASIA itself is a global organization despite its name.
A huge thanks to Mario & Hong-Phuc in helping us make this a realistic reality this year given our aggressive timeline.
