[Matplotlib-devel] Google Season of Docs 2023

Hello, folks!

Welcome all technical writers interested in participating in Google Season of Docs 2023 with Matplotlib.

Now that Matplotlib has been selected as an organization to participate in GSoD, we will follow the steps outlined in the Technical Writer guide by Google. This means each technical writer should submit a Statement of Interest at some point with a proposed work plan for the project we are interested in (indexing the Matplotlib examples gallery).

While the hiring deadline for technical writers is May 10, we might decide on who to hire before then. Submitting your statement of interest sooner, rather than later, is a good idea - but that doesn’t mean you need to do it now. I would recommend you to plan on writing your statement of interest by the end of next week (April 14). Feel free to ask questions, talk about your proposed ideas and background and make sure you understand the project well - for this, I would recommend joining our gitter room (https://matrix.to/#/#mpl-gsod:gitter.im). For the final statement of interest you can follow the Google template: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/tech-writer-statement

You can submit your final statement of interest to matplotlib-gsod@googlegroups.com

Please note we will not provide direct feedback on your statement of interest - that is what we expect you to do as part of your proposal.

Good luck!
