GSoC and Outreachy 2021 Project Ideas

Hi All!

The ODK-X community is planning to apply to participate in Google Summer of Code and Outreachy again this year. In this post I am hoping to start discussion, get help narrowing down project ideas, and fill in their details so that we can complete our application on February 19th.

In the last TSC meeting, we collected a list of possible ideas. I have collected that list into a Google Doc here. I am hoping to narrow that list down to around 3 to 5 ideas that are feasible for a GSoC or Outreachy student to achieve in a summer internship. For a sense of scope, projects should take about 175 hours to complete over a 10 week coding period (source). That is half the length of previous year’s GSoC projects.

We are certainly open to new ideas that are not on that list as well. Please feel free to add them directly to that document.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @Rohan_kumar! Glad to hear you are interested! As @elmps2018 said, we are still coming up with a list of projects. The next step is for our organization to apply to be a part of GSoC, but we may or may not be accepted! We will post our official project list in the future if we are accepted and can start taking applications. But for now, feel free to introduce yourself and get to know the community!
