Call for mentors for 2009!

Post by sinbad »

I should have asked this question a little earlier really, but the time for organisation applications is again upon us, and I need to provide Google with a list of mentors for this year.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone who is interested in being a mentor this year would get in touch and let me know asap, either here or via sinbad AT ogre3d.org.

I'll be mentoring again this year, and new and veteran mentors alike are very welcome :)

Requirements are a medium level of Ogre knowledge, a bit of patience, about 5 hours per week to spend on guiding a student, and most importantly, enthusiasm! I can say from experience that it's a good programme to be involved in, helping students do open source work over their summer holidays instead of flipping burgers.

For information on the SOC, please see the FAQ.

Note: If Noman is selected - I want to be his mentor. :D

Thanks - would you be the backup admin too, in case I'm away?

Sure. I am thinking of having a vacation also in the summer - but if I do - I am going to have the laptop with me and will be available every day.

Thanks Brian.

tuan's emailed me, he's in too.

Assaf, could you let me know what your 'link ID' is on the GSOC 2009 site so I can put you as the backup admin?

Holidays are fine so long as we organise cover - I'm sure we're all happy to fill in for each other as required.

Can all mentors please make sure they are registered on the GSoC 2009 Site, and then let me know what their 'link IDs' are?

Made a request a "Role Request" using the UI... perhaps you have a list of request on Admin UI side listing that ?

Aha, yes - I'm still finding my way around this new system!

I've approved you, thanks.
