Information for Students

This page is for collecting ideas for Google Code-in tasks. The tasks will be moved into the GCi app for you to claim when appropriate.

Adding a Proposal

Please only add proposals you are willing to mentor!

Please keep in mind that the tasks are going to be solved by 13 to 17 year olds. We have a particular need for beginner tasks.

When adding an idea to this section, please try to include the following data:

  • a brief explanation
  • the expected results
  • prerequisites for working on your project if any
  • if applicable, links to more information or discussions
  • your name and email address for contact

The proposals should be ordered by area:

  • Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
  • Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing documents and helping others learn more
  • Outreach/research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing, or studying problems and recommending solutions
  • Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality
  • User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction

If you have a good idea for a proposal but are not going to mentor it, get in contact with relevant team/contributor first.
