Welcome GCI Students 馃

Hi everybody 馃槂 !

We all at Public Lab 馃巿 - learn, grow, work, brainstorm ideas, contribute together so why not share about our weekly goals and the awesome work we have done at Public Lab with each other, so we can support and collaborate with each other better. We have a Community Check-In each week, where every community member can share something about their work from the past week and about their current week's goal 馃幆. You are also welcome to share fun-fact 馃槃 , new ideas 馃挕 , your learning goals 鈽戯笍 .We believe in collaborative efforts to support our community. We are running a learning platform which helps a newcomer to become master of tomorrow. 馃挴

About Google Code-In 馃懆鈥嶐煉

Google Code-in (GCI) is an annual programming competition hosted by Google LLC that allows pre-university students to complete tasks specified by various, partnering open source organisations. A global, online contest introducing teenagers to the world of open source development and an opportunity for beginners to jump in and get started no matter what skills they have. Participants get to work on real software and win prizes from t-shirts to a trip to Google HQ!
PublicLab Welcomes all GCI Students, 馃帀 馃巿

In order to score points, students are required to complete tasks. So, What are tasks ?
Tasks- A task is a small project that is expected to take between 3-5 hours of work to complete. Tasks are categorised with the following labels:

  • Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code 馃懆鈥嶐煉
  • Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing documents and helping others learn more 馃摑
  • Outreach/Research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing, or studying problems and recommending solutions 馃懆鈥嶐煍
  • Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality 馃敤
  • Design: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction 馃帹

The following scoring system will be used for grading your tasks throughout all the repositories participating in Google Code-In. 馃挴
In case you find any task without a score, then immediately inform either me or any mentor to know its score. 馃憤

GCI Scoring System

  • Beginner Level Task(1pt): - Installation Tasks, First-Time-Issues, Typographical Errors, HTML-CSS, etc. Try to use First-Timers-issue format ONLY if you are creating such tasks. Duration: 3 days.

  • Medium Level Task(3pt) - Simple challenging tasks like methods, tests, designs, demos, documentation(if small) etc. Duration: 5 days.
    .

  • Hard Level Task(5pts) - New feature, research, Documentation(long or difficult for high school students to understand and write), etc. Duration: 7 days.
    馃

  • Supportive Task - Bug Reporting(1pt/task) 馃悶 , Creating "First-Timer-Issues"(1pt/task), Suggesting New Changes(if accepted, 1pt/change) 馃挕 , Add Code Linking(1pt/task) 馃敆 , PR reviews (1pt/week, however if the mentor that mentee is too helpful, 2 pts can be provided at max) 鉁旓笍 馃摐 , adding a screenshot to existing PRs(1pt/task), etc.

  • Hall-of-fame Tasks(15pt): Wontfix issues. Jeff/me will ONLY make/publish these tasks. Duration: 10 days.
    Please refer: https://github.com/publiclab/plots2/wiki/Supportive-Tasks.
    If anyone finds any task exceeding complex, then we can enhance the scores too :-)

We strongly encourage students to participate in the Weekly community check-ins for regular updates 馃懐鈥嶁檪

One Installation Task & "First-Timer Issue" is a compulsion for all students. 馃挴 Mentors are requested to guide the students in this direction.
Supportive tasks can be done multiple times by each student. You will get points for each of the supportive tasks. 馃憤
We will be having a form at the end of GCI where you have to fill all the details of the tasks. You can mention all your extra supportive tasks there.

In case of any doubts, feel free to contact @SidharthBansal or other mentors here or on gitter! 馃枌May you have an awesome journey ahead !!! 馃巿 鉂わ笍 馃帀

Students can ping the mentors of the respective repos or projects in order to seek help or guidance. 馃帀 馃憤 馃懆鈥嶐煉

GCI students will be evaluated on the basis of total points, friendliness, and collaboration skills. We will be circulating a form to be filled by all the GCI students. This form will include their tasklist and expected total points. So, all students are requested to note down the issue number, pr number, scores of the task, etc. whichever they would solve in GCI.
Note: Students who will miss filling the final form will not be evaluated for prizes. So, please don't forget to fill the form at the end week of GCI.
Student grade sheet self-evaluation forms will be active in last week of GCI. 馃殌

All GCI Students are requested to say HELLO in this issue as this issue is the place for all the announcements.
Thanks,
Sidharth

We are aiming at a Supportive community at PL. So, we will be giving 1pt/week per repository to the students who will help in reviewing the PRs which are not reviewed yet.
Students are requested to write descriptive comments so that the creator of PR facing any trouble can resolve the problems in their PR. Yes, we want students to behave as mentors and review PR. 馃帀
馃殌
Student can do ALL supportive tasks along with their current task. Students can get points for these tasks after completion of the week.
For week i they will get marks in week i+1.
For the last week, get points in the last week itself.
These supportive tasks are made so that students can be busy while their tasks are under review by the mentors. You can check other supportive tasks too.
All students can do as many as supportive tasks as they want. They will get points for all of them.
Example, X opens 100 FTOS then X will get 100 points. We will circulate a form at the last week where you all have to write about these supportive tasks.

In case of any doubts, please feel free to ask here.

All students are requested to get PR review task in week i+1 for week i. We will delete week i PR Review task per repo in week i + 2.
We want all of you to secure a lot of points due to these tasks.
Tip: There are many tasks labelled with fto-candidate. If you change them to first-timers-only issue using fto templates, then you will get 1pt/fto.

Best of luck :-)

Hello! I'm participating in Google Code-in, and I'm excited to help out here. It looks like the task system here is separate from the GCI tasks dashboard, where you have to wait for one task to be approved before moving on to the next.

Is it alright to work on multiple PRs at the same time here on GitHub (just while waiting for the others to be reviewed)?

@sashadev-sky sashadev-sky commented Dec 7, 2019

@anthony-zhou you're technically allowed to work in multiple on Github, but if another student gets the issue on the dashboard it's theirs.

It's not a good situation when a participant claims a task that already has a PR up for it by a participant that didn't claim (this has already happened ). So I would say please don't officially open the PR on Github until you get the issue on dashboard (keep your changes local).

We will be giving points who are actively reviewing prs throughout the week. I observed some students write a single comment and are asking for approvals. We want GCI students to learn about reviewing prs too. Writing a single comment will give you points but you all will not be able to learn. So, I will advise students to review as many prs as possible.
Thanks

Can you guys write GitHub handle of all the GCI students you know in this post? Please don't write handles that are already present in this post.
I want all the Github Handle so that all the announcements done in this post are reached to them.

You can claim one task for some time at the dashboard in the end phase of GCI. So, it will be great if you choose and keep one task for it. Thanks all
