Hi everybody! Google Code-in (GCI) will soon take place again - a seven week long contest for 13-17 year old students to contribute to free software projects. Tasks should take an experienced contributor about two or three hours and can be of the categories Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research, Quality Assurance, and User Interface/Design. Do you have any Lua, template, gadget/script or similar task that would benefit your wiki? Or maybe some of your tools need better documentation? If so, and you can imagine enjoying mentoring such a task to help a new contributor, please check out [[:mw:Google Code-in/2019]] and become a mentor. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at [[:mw:Talk:Google Code-in/2019|our talk page]]. Many thanks in advance! --~~~~~

Inspired by Andre's messages from previous year. Any objections to its wording?

Hi, thank you a lot for being available as a GCI mentor! Wikimedia mentors need to be able to guide students. Hence mentors need to be experienced Wikimedia contributors and need to know the community and "how things work". Could you please share some information which specific Wikimedia projects you have contributed to and worked on so far? How would you describe your areas of expertise within Wikimedia which you'd like to mentor in GCI 2019? Are there any public Wikimedia contributions you could link to (for example your username or your Gerrit activity, or activity in Wikimedia projects on Github)? This would help us to get a better idea. Thank you! And if you have not contributed to Wikimedia yet, we encourage you to start contributing to Wikimedia by checking out https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker ! Thank you!
