Processing Foundation participating in GSoC 2022

Hi folks,
Excited to share that PF will be participating as a mentor organization in Google Summer of Code 2022, a program to bring in new contributors to open source development - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/. It will be our 11th year in the program. The program is now open to all new to open source development over than 18 and allows for different sized projects, and a later final deadline. Applications open on April 4. Here is the full timeline - Google Summer of Code 2022 Timeline  |  Google Developers. The project list is here - Project List · processing/processing Wiki · GitHub. Reach out if you have questions or want to discuss your ideas.

Hey @saberkhan ,
The project list mentions p5py(native python port for processing) but after reaching out to one of maintainers of the project, I found out that there are no mentors available for the project this year. So, what is going to happen to the project, as far as GSoC 2022 is concerned?

Sweet! I’m planning to work on developing a library for generating Jacquard weaving patterns. Think this would be appropriate to apply with?

Hello Sir,
I, Buduga Swetha ,studying in BTECH 3rd year at Keshav Memorial Institute Of Technology,
Hyderabad ,Telangana ,India. I have a good experience in HTML, Javascript (MERN stack) .I request you to help me on how to get started with my project “Internationalization Improvements” and provide me a clear direction on how to contribute and make a change.

greetings @saberkhan, I am interested in Web Accessibility on p5js.org and documentation project. This project interests me because This project wants updation on the examples page, tutorials, and documentation. I am a frontend developer in which I help in updating these pages with modern technologies, made some addon features, and also design wireframes for changing some styles to make website loading faster. I can also help in updating the content of these pages if needed as I do some technical writing side by side for 1 month. I am not experienced with that.
But you can see my published articles in the following links:

  2. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/explain-new-lifecycle-methods-in-react-v16-3/
  3. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/explain-css-vendor-prefixes/
  4. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/what-is-the-difference-between-map-and-weakmap-in-javascript/
    This project will help me to get more experience in existing skills and learn new skills (like p5.js) also.

Hi, I am Aarthy, a Third computer science engineering student at KGiSL Institute of Technology, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. I have won almost 6 national and zonal level hackathons including a National Level Open source event (SLoP 2.0). I have actively participated in Hacktoberfest 2022 and completed the challenges. I currently participate in the Open Source community at my college and give tech talks regularly. I have done real-time projects based on Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. I am also experienced with Deep Learning and Data visualization. I have also assembled and executed an autonomous car using AWS DeepRacer with Reinforcement learning (ML). I have also won a national-level technical/ tutorial blog writing competition. thus, I will be able to perform well in writing tutorials by analyzing the code. I am currently working on AI/ML with Python and setting it as my career path. I am also strongly experienced with problem-solving using C, Python, and C++. I am willing to start work on the project idea ‘Py5 beginner documentation’. I want to contribute to the project with all my consistent efforts and time. I am always available to learn for the GSoC’23 under your valuable guidance. Thank you.

Kindly look at my projects and portfolio here: Aarthy R

Hello, @Aarthy15 ! Sorry for the late reply, I’ve had a lot on my plate lately. We haven’t started thinking about GSoC 2023 yet but I am encouraged by your interest in py5! The py5 beginner documentation is complete and is now live. You can find them here:

https://py5coding.org/tutorials/intro_to_py5_and_python.html

For GSoC 2023 we will come up with other initiatives to work on. Any ideas or suggestions?
