I went through the idea list of this year, and the Code Slang-p5.js library project stuck out to me especially. I watched the TED talk by Sharon and needless to say, I was intrigued. GSOC is happening at the perfect time for me and I would love to work (and probably learn something) this summer.
I did some digging, but there does not seem to be much info on this project apart from the TED talk and a p5.js web editor submission. I also noticed that this project was in the last year’s idea list. Was it successfull?
Can you give me a heads-up on where exactly I should start ? I noticed that Sharon De La Cruz is named as the mentor for this year. Should I contact her directly?
Thanks in advance!
PS: Here is my github
Hi @tusharpandey13 – thanks for your interest in this project. I don’t have any specific answers for you, but here are a small group of related questions posts that might be relevant:
Hi @jeremydouglass, thank you, I looked at those posts and it seems to me that this thing is still to be developed.
Should I contact Sharon De La Cruz directly?
Also, can you add me to the gitter chat? I can’t access it without an email of this domain.
Yes, if there are contact mentors then reach out to them. If you are having a hard time contacting someone, see if the community coordinator @saberkhan can help.
I actually don’t know anything about the gitter, sorry. Where did you see information about it?
@jeremydouglass, Will do, thanks.
It was mentioned in the gsoc organisations page. Well, thanks anyway.
It might be for accepted participants, not applicants. @saberkhan might know.
Yes, it is only for accepted GSoC students.
@saberkhan I tried contacting the project mentor, Sharon De La Cruz via email and there has been no reply from her. Considering that proposals can now be submitted, should I go ahead and write a proposal for the same?
Yes, I think it makes sense. Someone else may choose to mentor it.
