How to ask general questions about the Code-in

Send an Email of questions

  • subscribe to the "gci-discuss" mailing list here
  • ask your question, and usually within a day someone from the OSGeo Code-in team (mentors or administrators) will reply
  • all OSGeo mentors for the Code-in contest follow this "gci-discuss" mailing list

Ask on the #osgeo-gsoc IRC chat channel

  • IRC-channel: #osgeo-gsoc channel on freenode.net
    • how to connect: choose your favorite IRC client, or go directly through your web browser with webchat
    • enter a nickname and click "I am not a robot" and press "Connect"
    • upon entering, ask your questions as you wish (no need to wait, just say "hello, I have a question about the Code-In, how do I..."
