Python is a popular high-level programming language. It is a general-purpose language used by scientists, developers, and many others who want to get things done quickly and effectively. In this spirit, many of our projects this year are about helping make Python faster!

If you're [[https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreachy#Eligibility|part of a group that is underrepresented in open source communities]] and available for a full-time (40h/week) paid internship working on Python from December 6, 2016 and March 6, 2017, please consider applying by October 17th, 2016.

== Mentors ==

 * Ramya Meruva will be the primary mentor for this year's intern. She can be reached at meruvaramya116@gmail.com
 * Monica Ene-Pietrosanu and Peter Xihong Wang are providing additional support

 * Terri Oda is providing organization admin help. She can be reached at TerriOda@gmail.com.
 * James Lopeman (meflin) is providing IRC channel support and organization admin help.

== Ideas ==

Ramya has offered up 3 ideas that she's most excited about:

 1. Develop a unified performance benchmark suite that’s acceptable for both Cpython & PyPy communities.

 2. Analyze the GUPB(Grand Unified Python Benchmarks) for which PyPy’s performance is worse than CPython and see if there is any scope for improvement ( ex: try and replicate cpython methodology)

 3. Improving [[https://bitbucket.org/pypy/jitviewer|JitViewer]] (a profiling tool for PyPy) – capable to attach to a running process.
[[https://www.gnome.org/outreachy/|Outreachy]] is a program to help people from underrepresented communities get involved in free and open source software by providing paid internships and mentoring support.

== Contacting Us ==

We're still working on the best places to chat and ask questions, but for now, we've got two irc channels set up:

[[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=python-outreachy|#python-outreachy]] on irc.freenode.net (This is where most of the other python channels are)
#python-outreachy on irc.gnome.org (this is where the outreachy help channel is)

Please join us there to chat with your fellow students and experienced mentors from similar programs! If you're new to IRC, you might want to check out [[http://www.irchelp.org/]]


== Submitting your application ==

[[https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Outreachy?action=show&redirect=OutreachProgramForWomen#Application_Process|Read up on the application process on the Outreachy site]] (that link has answers to a number of common questions and tips on how to be awesome!) and then learn
[[https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Outreachy?action=show&redirect=OutreachProgramForWomen#Send_in_an_Application|how to send in an application]].

Remember that unlike other internships you may have applied for, Outreachy applications are meant to be a collaborative experience, so you should make sure to talk to Ramya and try a small contribution before you apply so that you know if this is something you'll enjoy doing.
If you are an experienced mentor or experienced program admin interested in participating in Outreachy, please contact TerriOda (the SummerOfCode org admin for Python) to get more information. Please note that Outreachy requires mentors and program administrators who have some experience -- if you are new to this process, you should participate in SummerOfCode for at least a year or two before considering taking on this volunteer job.
