|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [science-iwg] Facebook Open Academy for Winter 2016|
FWIW, I just wanted to second what Andrea said: this is an awesome program and I've really enjoyed mentoring in it. I too highly recommend it. Philip Wenig might also be able to recommend it since he is participating too.
Facebook Open Academy is now taking applicants for Winter 2016.
If you're not familiar, this is a program that involves top students from great Universities & Colleges matched to work on open source projects for the term. Students work roughly 8 to 10 hours per week to complete features, fix bugs, and generally participate in the project's community. Typically they do so working in groups of 4 or more.
Mentors are expected to invest a few hours per week to mentor. The program also includes a face to face code sprint running for 3 days. We anticipate multiple code sprint locations this winter including ones in North America, Europe, and Asia. (Facebook generously reimburses mentors for travel costs)
For what it's worth, I highly recommend the program.
If you are interested, please complete the application form ASAP. Thanks! Please do let me know of your interest so I can put a good word in with the FOA team.
