(We missed the 2015 round. Leaving this task up for grabs for a next round.)
Wikimedia is planning to participate in Google Summer of Code 2015 and the simultaneous FOSS Outreach Program for Women round 10. While we have increased the quantity of participants and the quality of the projects delivered, we still miss more geographical diversity and a better volunteer retention after the programs.
In 2015, we want to improve by
- collaborating with local Wikimedia groups and Google Developer Groups to reach out to candidates in countries where it is difficult for us to get participants
- promoting the engagement of GSoC / OPW interns with Wikimedia local communities as a way to establish relationships beyond the program
Ideas and edits welcome.
