Dates and Deadlines

In general, Python will ask mentors to do things 48h before the Google deadline. This allows our admins time to make sure that evaluations, etc. are complete and ready for Google when their deadline comes. (The whole organization gets penalized if anyone's late, so we make sure that doesn't happen unfairly.) Student deadlines are exactly as Google tells you, although getting things done earlier is never a bad idea!

Mentor and Sub-Org admin deadlines

These are also listed on the calendar at the bottom of this page that you can subscribe to or add to your own device.

PSF-specific deadlines:
  • February 3, 2020 - Sub-org application deadline. Please email gsoc-admins@python.org to indicate interest before this date.
  • February 29, 2020 - Second sub-org application deadline. This is intended for projects who applied separately but did not get in, but we can often take a limited number of other sub-orgs who just missed the early date. Email gsoc-admins@python.org for details.

Blogging schedule (Student Deadlines)

Every week, students are asked to post something about their project on their blogs. This helps the python community learn about the work students are doing and also helps the org admins make sure that students still on track to pass and don't need help. There are two types of things that students post: blog posts, which are longer descriptions of the work they're doing, and weekly check ins, which answer a few short questions as a sort of status report. These are due every Monday during the GSoC period, and the schedule is listed below as a list and as a calendar at the bottom of the page that you can export and add to your own calendar.
