    We are looking for folks who can convert this static website into hugo, support markdown pages, enable anyone to click edit link to make changes on github and send in a PR to merge updates.
    We are looking at quickstart pages for Python, PHP, Ruby and Erlang
    We need more examples that showcase complex microservices, GCP integrations

    are you expecting a student to do all this work or just a part of it?

    @vishwas78 i don't expect one person to do it all. These are my wish list. You are welcome to take one or more and submit them as your proposal. I also intentionally left it open ended, for different student to submit different examples and usecases

    Hi all! l have observed your talks for some day and it seems that some of the idea here https://storage.googleapis.com/summer-of-code/OpenCensusIdeasList.pdf is too complex to apply for? l am confused about what kind of project will you accept? l am experienced with node and know something about golang. Can l send a proposal on improving the existing opencensus-go or any recommendation?

    Hello ! I am Adarsh from Kerala, India. I have experience in Django , so looking forward to integrating OpenCensus into that. Looking forward to making a difference with code :)

    @shinytang6 I havnt updated the original list. I agree that list was a bit of a stretch for a GSoC engagement. Here's the new wish list I had posted earlier:
    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
    @adarsh1021 have you contributed to Django before? One of the issue with integrating with 3rdparty frameworks is we need to engage with the maintainers so your contributions can be accepted. Having prior experience contributing the frameworks would definitely help.

    @adarsh1021
    @tags07 Oh I have never made any contribution to Django. I have experience in developing in it. I understand your concern

    Hi all.
    I hope I am not much late to the work around.
    I am pretty interested in Hugo and the project of developing new features for the website.
    I have noticed the huge change in the website (It looks just great) . but couldn't find the source anywhere in the github repos
    The old website was missing a lot, and I was drafting some to do with GSoC. but I guess with the new website I am kinda confused
    ( the changes is here [census-instrumentation/opencensus-website#30] . I didn't check the pull requests )

    The website sources have been updated now. it was heldup due to CLA signature.. its all merged and available now.
    The new website is just static html pages. Need to convert them to hugo pages..

    Thank you...Where can i find details about these projects?
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @Prem-kumar27 Here's our website: https://opencensus.io and here's our git repos: https://github.com/census-instrumentation . What specific detail were you looking for? you can also reach out to the mentors if you need clarification. For Java it would be Dino and Python would be Angela

    Hello, I'm an undergraduate of Computer Science and Engineering of University of Moratuwa. I'm interest in the project "Instrument/Integrate OpenCensus with other opensource frameworks" in GSoC. How can I begin contributing? How to gather requirements ?
    Further Is there any particular format of the proposal ? If so sharing here will be so helpful most of us,
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @NGimhana Here's the Student Guide: https://google.github.io/gsocguides/student/
    Have a look at the documentation on https://opencensus.io and code on github: https://github.com/census-instrumentation
    Think about what problem you are solving, what is missing today and how OpenCensus can help

    @tags07 what are your views on gatsbyjs
    Sahil Mhapsekar
    @apherio
    as an alternative to Hugo

    @tags07 what is the preferred method for submitting a draft proposal?

    @umarbrowser
    hi there
    Freddy
    @freddygv
    @tags07 one more question actually, I heard that MS is working on an opencensus library for .net, do you happen to know who over there is involved in that? thanks!
    if they have a repo for it, they haven't made it public
    Freddy
    @freddygv
    actually, I was able to get in touch with them.. they still haven't even determined how involved they want to be with opencensus
    would still like to know about the draft submission process though, different organizations have different preferences for this
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    @apherio Don't want to change to a different framework at this time. I'll take a look at gatsbyjs. it did look interesting :)
    @freddygv you should ask about .Net in Lobby: https://gitter.im/census-instrumentation/Lobby
    @freddygv i think you can submit it on the GSoC site and mark it as draft or final.. https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/

    @umarbrowser We have had several interest in Python Stats at this point. This may already been taken. We will review all proposals after March 27th and decide as per the process.

    @vaibhavdaren
    how to show usecases ?
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    Thanks to all the folks who submitted their proposals. Today is the last day for submissions. We will start reviewing them thru April 17th
    I'd also like to point out that as a first time org this year, we may only get 1-2 slots. In case your proposal is not accepted, please do not feel disheartened. You could always submit your contributions on github and be part of the opencensus developer community. We'll find ways to reward you for your contributions.
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    We got one slot this year. We'll review all the proposals and pick one that has the most impact to the project. Please do not feel bad if your project was not selected. You are always welcome to contribute outside GSoC program.
    Gopi Palaniappan
    @tags07
    Quick update on the project we selected. Thanks to all those who sent in your proposals. We received around 14 proposals and had just one slot to fill this year. We decided to go with Website conversion to Hugo and enabling markdown to make it easy to edit pages. There were several proposals around Python, Nodejs which is already being implemented this quarter so we had to lower the priority on those proposals. As mentioned earlier, you are always welcome to contribute to the project outside the GSoC framework.
