HPX accepted for Google Season of Docs 2021

This year Google is organizing the 3rd annual Google Season of Docs (GSoD). Like Google Summer of Code (GSoC) the program aims to match motivated people with interesting open source projects that are looking for volunteer contributions. GSoD, however, aims to improve open source project documentation, which often tends to get less attention than the code itself. We recognize this all too well in the HPX project. For this reason, we decided to apply for GSoD and can now proudly announce that HPX is one of 30 organizations selected to participate in this year’s GSoD!

This means that we are now looking for motivated people to help us improve our documentation. If you have some prior experience with technical writing, and are interested in working together with us on making the documentation of a cutting-edge open source C++ library the best possible guide for new and experienced users, this is your chance. You can read more about the program on the official GSoD home page. The project proposal that writers would work on can be found here. Writers are welcome to adapt aspects of the project to their specific interests. Our current documentation can be found here.

The deadline for technical writer applications is May 11 anywhere on earth. Apply here! Come talk to us about your ideas and your application on our mailing list, IRC, or Slack. We’d love to hear from you!
