    Hello Everyone, I am swarna Bisane Undergrad at IIT Mandi , India. I want apply for GSoD 19. I have already done the Robocomp installation and tutorials section in my GSoC phase, unfortunately I couldn't get into it. Please tell me the most preferred idea among the list. And what next steps should I take to get more familiar with the project.

    Hello @Bisane132
    Take a look to the gsod FAQ https://robocomp.github.io/web/gsod/2019/faq/ and check if you are eligible for the GSoD.
    I think the two main ideas for GSoD will be "A gentle introduction to RoboComp" and "RoboComp’s basic components"
    Bisane132
    @Bisane132
    thanks @orensbruli. I have gone through the FAQs and also I am eligible for GSoD 19. Since I am very much interested in robotics, both the projects sounds interesting to me.

    To decide which one you apply, you will have to evaluate what you consider to be more adapted to your knowledge and tech skills.

    I will come up very soon with my selected project. After that I need to contact to respective project mentors right?

    @orensbruli
    right

    Is there only one slot for the technical writer in the org?

    @pbustos
    Up to two

    Hi,
    I'm Rohit Kumar (@aquatiko on GitHub) from IIIT-Gwalior, India. I'm doing my major in Information Technology. I am deeply interested in Open-Source and a GSoC'19 student under OpenAstronomy. There I'm working on JuliaAstro's package AstroImage.
    I saw the idea-page of RoboComp for Google Season of Docs and I'm interested to work on it and the project timeline won't collide as GSoD starts after GSoC ends.
    My GSoC project requires both Python and Julia and I have knowledge of C++ from my curriculum . I have past technical writing experience and I blog at aquatiko.github.io . During the course of GSoC I would be required to write a lot of documentation too. So, I thought it would be a good idea to use the gained expertise to GSoD too.
    I'm interested to work on "Creating RoboComp’s components" and "A gentle introduction to RoboComp".
    Usually at this stage in GSoC, students solve issues to get familiar with the project. Can someone point and guide me to such doc extending issues which could help me better understand the project?

    Hi Rohit, thank you for your interest.
    Have you already followed the tutorials?
    Rohit Kumar
    @aquatiko
    yeah, saw the tutorials... really interesting work being done here!!
    I just wanted to enquire, if you are only allowing professional technical writers from corporate sector for GSoD or would a person having experience with Open-Source documentation and who have written such technical blogs in the past do fine? @pilarbachiller
    Esteban Martinena Guerrero
    @orensbruli
    @aquatiko It's the first year of GSoD, so we are learning with this too, but I think that Google will decide on your application if you meet the criteria for "Able to demonstrate prior technical writing experience by submitting role descriptions and work samples", not us.

    @pbustos informed me that there will be some assignment for documentation, (robocomp/robocomp#207) , sorry but i couldn't find it. Any lead?
    Sunny Dhoke
    @sunn-e
    Okay, As per discussion with @pbustos , we will have assignment here. Great. Eagerly waiting.

    Google Summer of Docs is a new initiative that will help us enhance our documentation. To select the best candidates and to know what can we expect from them after they have been selected, we are going to propose a small documentation task: writing documentation for the component hokuyoComp. The component can be found in the robocomp-robolab repository, under the directory ./components/hokuyoComp.

    The documentation must be written in Markdown, so that it can easily be integrated with the rest of the project's documentation. A README.md markdown file will be included in the directory hokuyoComp (although you might want to include other files such as images). Because hokuyoComp implements the Laser interface, you should briefly describe its interface.

    When applying for GSoD, please, provide a download link for a zip file so we can download your work.

    There you go! Apologies for the delay.
    Sunny Dhoke
    @sunn-e
    No worries @ljmanso , You are right on time. Still got a month or so for final eadline. :)
    So a markdown .md file in a zip file is what robocomp expects?
    Luis J. Manso
    @ljmanso
    Yes, a Markdown file. You can use additional files such as images
    Sunny Dhoke
    @sunn-e
    All right, thanks for the update. So will be the candidate judged on that only?
    We have multiple projects.
    How many of them will be selected?
    I'm just curious.
    Is the link supposed to be posted while feeling GSoD form? or is there mechanism just like GSoC where you share proposal links first for feedback and then final proposal at the end.
    Luis J. Manso
    @ljmanso
    The assessment will be based on that and the content of the application form (CV and the documentation already published if any)

    Hello everyone, I am Chetan Shinde from PICT college India.
    I am really excited about contributing to the organization as Technical writer. I know I am slightly late, will make sure that will go through all the conversation on this thread to get a complete gist of it. Thanks!

    @sunn-e
    Done. Phew. @ljmanso and @pbustos , I have submitted my proposals today. The interface was quite confusing. You can get back to me for any clarification. I will be more than happy to make myself more clear in my GSoD approach. I have also submitted the proposal and the assignment solution in a link form.

    Hello @Gautam120499
    Take a look at this previous message: https://gitter.im/robocomp/GSoD?at=5cf11a20f3a60a79a42dd8b2
    But GSoD 2019 is currently running and you would not be able to apply till next year.
