Hi @Guy. Taking a look at the GSoC materials, it looks like there may not be a clear way for potential applicant to link up via Slack, e.g., no obvious way how they would get an invitation to the chat. Can you take a look at update materials as necessary? Thanks in advance!

Thank you for picking this up.
The link was not working. I have corrected that. But it still does not offer a clear way to join the group as one needs to be invited. I will add an short explanation tomorrow.

Hi Michael,
Is the first evaluation due now? Or at the end of the month?
Thank you,
Guy

Hi Guy. The first round evaluations are due from our side on 1 July from mentors, so we can assemble everything for Google by the 3rd. We’ll be sending out a reminder next week. Thanks for asking!
