Google Code-In Task Planning

This page has ideas for more tasks we can create for Google Code-In.

If you have an idea for a task, add a stub below, and discuss with the other mentors. Eventually, these tasks should be integrated with https://git@github.com:joel_sherrill/gci_tasks.git and/or converted into a descriptive page that gets linked from our main GCI page using the GCI Task Template.

The categories are as follows:

  • Code: writing or refactoring code
  • Documentation and Training: creating/editing documents and helping others learn more
  • Outreach and Research: community management, outreach/marketing, or studying problems and recommending solutions
  • Quality Assurance: testing and ensuring code is of high quality
  • Design: user experience research or user interface design and interaction
