We are posting to invite Matplotlib to become a mentor organisation in our inaugural AI Code-In contest! If there are any Matplotlib developers who are willing to mentor students in contributing to Matplotlib, please do reply/reach out!
We are a team of students from Hong Kong, who launched this initiative (inspired by GCI, which was sadly discontinued) to enhance the AI literacy of middle & high school students around the world. We sincerely invite Matplotlib to join as one of the mentoring organisations! This will be a 7 weeks long (Sep 10 - Oct 26) contest, where students complete tasks created by organisations (e.g. good first time issues) on GitHub. At the end of the contest, organisations will nominate 1 winner & runner-up to receive an academic scholarship (amount dependent on funding). We target AI-related organisations, such as organisations whose library is essential in Computer Vision: Matplotlib.
At the moment, we have confirmed our 1st mentoring organisation (and 3 sponsors): The Julia Programming Language (FluxML & SciML)!
It would be an incredible honour if Matplotlib joined!
Thanks for your time and thanks for maintaining Matplotlib!
