    Hello, Myself Vishwas Mittal, CSE Sophomore at IIT Roorkee, India. I saw OpenCensus in GSoC Orgs list. I really like it and would love to contribute in it. Can you please help me get started? I like programming in Python and by now I have good experience with Django.

    I can work on

    1. Develop Python stats library for OpenCensus, or
    2. Instrument/Integrate OpenCensus with other opensource frameworks (django).

    Can anyone help me get started?

    @tahgoody I forgot to note. an area of integration that could use work is grpc client instrumentation. I have a grpc server instrumention started but the existing grpc client has no way of adding interceptors and so will be a larger project

    Hello, I am UG student at PICT, Pune. I am interested in working on: Develop Ruby stats library for OpenCensus. How can I start contributing?
    tahgoody
    @tahgoody
    @tsloughter ok. Will look into that too.

    @vishwas78 @rushbah123453 @sakshambassi If you are looking to participate on GSoC, you should start thinking about writing up a proposal on a topic of your interest. The timeline for submissions are listed here: https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline The team will review and accept a proposal that fits the project and you can then contribute as part of GSoC. The topics currently listed are some ideas but i think, its too high level. I suggest you look at the current state of development on github: https://github.com/census-instrumentation
    Here are some topics we are looking for contributions:
    • Examples, usecases
    • zPages
      -- Generic cross lang infra
      -- Better UX
    • Convert static website to use markdowns, hugo template
    • Java specific :
      -- Tag injection annotation
    • Exporters
    Note that GSoC runs for 10-12 weeks. you need to pick something that is small enough to be completed in this period.
    Look at open issues under each repo https://github.com/census-instrumentation ..see if you want to resolve them by submitting a PR

    @tags07
    Look at stats, trace implementation in Java and Go as reference and see if you can find gaps in other languages that you want to fill
    rushbah123453
    @rushbah123453
    @tags07 the topics are intresting , but is their anything in cloud computing too?
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    rushbah123453@ could you elaborate what you mean by cloud computing? Are you interested in integrating OpenCensus with client libraries?
    rushbah123453
    @rushbah123453
    @tags07 as mentioned in the github repo, opencensus will collect data from app and send it to backend services, is their any opportunity to work in this
    @tags07 I have experience in springboot+jdbc+kenesisDataStream(analytics)+androidDevelopment(frontend)+AWS+web development. I am searching something that can utilize all my skills.
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    Sure, we need exporters for several languages, examples that showcase multiple microservices ..may be with cloud backends..
    Can you combine this to showcase OpenCensus to export traces to Zipkin or Stackdriver?

    @apherio
    Hey @tags07 I am trying to understand how can one get complete analytics and metrics to monitor opencensus adoption.Would love to work over it to make changes in current static website
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    Think of showcasing observability, tracing, metrics in a distributed environment
    rushbah123453
    @rushbah123453
    @tags07 so I can work as exporting data from app and show analytics right , I will do more research and will be back in few days.
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @rushbah123453 you can choose to work on any topic you like. Make sure your proposals are clear on the goals. Include any designs or breakdown of the project into milestones/tasks. The review team will select projects based on priority, relevance, feasibility, impact to the OpenCensus and which projects show clarity on deliverables.

    @adamgarza and myself will be leading web development. We are specifically looking for folks who can convert a static website into hugo based site that allows for edits using markdown.
    Sahil Mhapsekar
    @apherio
    @tags07 I would be interested for the same may i know why did you choose hugo over others ?
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    We are also looking for folks who can cookup examples to showcase application of OpenCensus in various scenarios.. for example, have a look at this blog post by Emmanuel(@odeke-em): https://medium.com/@odeke_et/3636820d98c8 .We will accept a proposal that is as simple as creating a similar blog post showcasing 3rdparty integrations with OpenCensus

    @tags07
    @apherio we started with jekyll ..but decided to move to hugo as we have a great Go fanbase in-house. besides most of the jekyll themes are also supported on hugo. We felt it might be easy to maintain. Plus whats not to like in Go ;-) ...am sure @jbd can add more.. or you can look up hugo features here: https://gohugo.io/
    @apherio what else would you suggest? just curious... may be there are merits to using others..
    Sahil Mhapsekar
    @apherio
    @tags07 haha just trying to understand what made you choose hugo. Yeah i am pretty impressed with hugo and already experimenting with it since morning
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    You can also write exporters to other 3rdparty backends.. for example: census-instrumentation/opencensus-java#1023 was sent by @marccarre last week. Its a great example to show how you can be involved.
    Sahil Mhapsekar
    @apherio
    @tags07 java seems quite lot active been following it for while
    Saksham Bassi
    @sakshambassi
    @tags07 thank you for replying, I would be interested in working stats & trace implementation in probably python. I will look into the implementation done in java and go.
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @sakshambassi trace is already implemented in python. @kcooperstein is working on python stats. May be you can ping her and coordinate along with @WarrenKiser

    Good evening, I'm interested into the Node branch of development but the repo seems empty, where can I know more?
    Sahil Mhapsekar
    @apherio
    @MikaelMello the complete library has to be implemented looking at others which are available.Even I am looking out for the node branch to be developed
    Mikael Mello
    @mikaelmello
    @apherio , that certainly makes things interesting, will look into it, thanks!
    Mikael Mello
    @mikaelmello
    Hello @tags07 , I'd like to ask what kind of experience is expected from someone that intends to work on the Node library or to help on the C++ library
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @MikaelMello more than experience, we are looking for what you can deliver. I listed some topics we need contributions around. Since this is a 3month engagement your projects need to be small enough so it can be completed before the evaluation date. This also means you cannot take on something thats more complex and long-term projects.. creating core libraries from scratch falls into that bucket...unless you can show that you already made some progress.

    Student Proposals
    Student Proposal Submission period: March 12-27
    Starting next week students will be able to submit their proposals via the program website. Each student may submit up to 3 proposals to the program. This is a change from last year when we allowed 5 proposals. They can submit multiple proposals to the same organization for different projects if they wish.

    Historically, the students with the best proposals reach out to the orgs early to receive feedback before submitting their final proposal - those students who have already been reaching out to you are likely to be among your best student options this year.

    Post Student Proposal Period: March 27 - April 8
    Students must submit their final proposal as a PDF through the website. It will be visible to mentors/org admins after the deadline for student applications (March 27 16:00 UTC). We will make our decisions on which students to accept based on the contents of the final PDF proposal and our interactions with the student.

    @freddygv
    @tags07 are proposals submitted on a rolling basis? Or is the timing not particularly important as long as they're in before the deadline?
    Freddy
    @freddygv
    Sorry meant evaluated not submitted
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @freddygv As per the timeline : https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/#timeline , Evaluations happen between Aug 14th and Aug 21, but i am guessing if you work closely with your mentor, you may get informal feedback on how things are going.
    Did you mean evaluation after the proposal has been accepted or evaluation of the proposal itself?... the above info is for proposals that have been accepted. As for timeline for proposals itself.. they get reviewed between: March 27, 2018 - April 23, 2018 .No projects are accepted for GSoC 2018 after April 23rd. You are welcome to submit them and contribute to OpenCensus, but it would be part of GSoC 2018 program.
    Freddy
    @freddygv
    Yes I meant evaluation of the proposals. Thank you!
