Clean up slightly.

Google Code-In (GCI)

Welcome! If you're new and a student, we encourage you to try one of our beginner tasks first. The "Hello, World!" task is a great first task so that you can be prepared to try tackling tasks that involve using RTEMS.

Background for GCI 2018

Google Code-In (GCI) is a contest introducing 13-17 year old pre-university students to open source software development. GCI 2018 runs from October 23 to December 12. Students choose tasks they wish to work on from a range of categories. Upon successful completion of tasks, eligible students can earn prizes (digital certificates, t-shirts, hoodies) and grand prize winners will receive a trip to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California for themselves and a parent or legal guardian.

For Mentors

Mentoring for RTEMS is a rewarding experience. You get to meet and interact with young smart students who want to learn. Mentors do not need to be RTEMS developers, anyone from the community can mentor. Task planning is at GCI/TaskPlan. Please put ideas there.

Instructions for Repeatable Tasks

The following tasks can either be done multiple times by different students (e.g., Hello World) or repeated on a different set of input (e.g., Investigate a Ticket).
