Writing a blog about your OSRE 2023 project

Starting with OSRE 2023 we ask student contributors to blog!

Starting in 2023 the Organization Admins will be asking students and contributors to provide regular status updates which will help us better highlight the work you are doing and track activities within our OSRE projects. These progress reports will also form the basis of blog reports prepared by students in the course of their summer. Blog reports should include links to proposals, presentations, reports, and an overview of the student’s experience.

Your experience is invaluable for future OSRE candidates and for improving the program every year.

Size and content

Keep it short and crisp. Include a short description of your project, a link to your project proposal, and, later in the program, links to the GSoC reports you provided.

Making a pull request for your blog
