Hello Everyone !
I saw AboutCode's GSoD'21 Proposal and I was immediately exited as it meet my interests. I am a focused and quick-learning software engineer with experience in Python, JavaScript, Rest API, CLI tools, Git, etc.
Talking about experience, I write blogs and articles on Medium and HubPages. Previously used some tools and technologies like Markdown, Sphinx, LaTeX and Wikimedia Markup for contributions. Looking forward to contribute to this project, also I welcome the chance to discuss further.

@AyanSinhaMahapatra Yes, I have read that. But, there have been cases where we have found out late that some of the organizations have already hired in advance or very early. So, for this, I just wanted to confirm with you. :)

Also, I have been following the docs and github from some time.
I am keen to know if the above format is ready to go for us and can we start writing an application proposal statement based on that now?
Also, there are a couple of projects listed on the website. So, on what can we start working? Since the number of technical writers to be hired is not mentioned as of now if I am not wrong or I have missed anything?
Would really like to clear these doubts to start contributing as soon as possible. @AyanSinhaMahapatra @pombredanne and other mentors too :)

I am also a participant; I can answer some of your doubts if okay @pombredanne @AyanSinhaMahapatra. This is the org's accepted proposal I assume! you can just follow the statement of interest format posted on GSoD 2021.

Only one project was accepted so you'll only need to consider that one. ScanCode.io related project. Good luck

Respected sir,
I am a GSoD aspirant from India. Last year too I applied but was unable to get selected due to the heavy competition. This year because of the severe Covid spread in India, I was unable to reach you earlier. Please reply back if the technical writer role is already fixed . I would really be honoured to make a proposal for your organization on the given project if there is still time for me to apply. Any feedback at all will be most welcome.
Thanking You

Hello, My name is Aaqib Qadeer and I am a software engineer.
I have no technical writing experience but I am willing to learn the skills during the program and put in the extra effort. Am I eligible to apply for this project?
Philippe Ombredanne
@pombredanne
@aaqibqadeer I appreciate the enthusiasm but we are looking for experienced technical writers here :) ... in a nutshell you are eligible to apply, not having the experience would mean you chance to be accepted are nil.

All: I am glad to announce that we have selected @hyounes4560 for our GSoD 2021 project.
We are grateful of all the proposals we have received and that's always a difficult choice as there were several really excellent proposals.

Note also that we are setting up a separate tech writer program for possibly one or two tech writers. This will not be as ambitious as GSoD, but we will be reaching out to the candidates that submitted excellent proposals to submit there too.
