Moodle.org recently announced that, for the 10th year in a row, they will be participating in Google’s summer of code. Beyond reminding me of my age, this is remains a fantastic way for new developers to continue to refine their craft while under the mentorship of an experienced professional. Oh, yeah, and along the way building something that is likely to be useful (and used!) by thousands of people around the world.
The process for participating in the Summer Of Code is straight forward: Click here to see the timeline for 2016. For those interested, there is also no shortage of possibilities for working within the Moodle platform. In fact, Moodle maintains a list of projects for new developers that is perfect for this type of activity: click here to see the list of Moodle projects for new developers.
Aside from picking a project to work on, you also need to apply to Moodle for approval. Click here to get all the details about applying to Moodle.
And, for all you experienced Moodler’s out there, the GSoC also needs Mentors! For anyone interested in being a part of this please contact David Mudrak here.
