After the Program
What can a Student do in Melange after Google Summer of Code is completed?
Submitting Code Samples in Melange
As a requirement of Google Summer of Code, all Students who receive passing final evaluations will need to provide either a sample or a copy of the code they produced as part of participating in the program. Ask your Mentor if you are not sure which you should do. All Students will need to add files, which can include source files, a single .diff file, multiple .diff files, binary files, etc., to their project in Melange.
Code Sample File Naming Convention
Name your tarball file according to the following convention: givennames_surnames.tar.* (e.g. Carol_Smith.tar.gz)
Very important: You must use the nomenclature above when submitting your code. If you do not use this naming convention, it is likely that others will have a lot of trouble finding your code sample.
How to Provide Your Code Samples
Login to your your account in Melange.
- Go to My Dashboard
- Go to My Projects section and choose the project you worked on
- Click on Update
- At the bottom of Update Project page, use the form to upload code samples
