It’s May 14, and this is when we officially start coding for GSoC, 2018 edition. This time, I would be working on improving the Fedora Community App with the Fedora project.

The State of the GSoC Payments for India 2017

One of the very interesting part of Google Summer of Code is the payments. It’s a large factor that will motivate you to continue your project amidst the very hot and humid Indian summer. Setting up the payment correctly is a really nervous experience, as the questions asked during sign-up are bewildering. I aim to answer some questions that came to my mind while signing up to Payoneeer. If you are new to GSoC, I hope this will be helpful for you.
