Proposal of the program “Peru Rumbo al GSoC 2018”


About the program

After our last experience as a group with the GNOME PERU CHALLENGE, members of our community can do a better job in this new program called “Peru in the way of GSoC 2018”.  Please see some posts related to our previous effort: Post 1, post 2 and post 3.

Now, the idea is to select 12 Peruvian students students to offer a special technical training during six Sundays during November and December 2017 to apply to the next round of the GSoC through the GNOME and the Fedora project.

* We are considering C and Javascript o participate with Fedora in the GSoC, and GTK with C and python to apply to GNOME.

 * Participating in this program will NOT guarantee a GSoC slot or even necessarily provide preference.

Content of the Program

This is an overview of the training which includes Linux, C, JavaScript and Python topics.


I am planning to spread this idea to apply to the program in many Lima universities.  Our meetings are going to be on Sundays (9am -6pm) at the university and each session will be documented in a personal blog and in the git account of each student.

Questions of the previous exam

The exam will let us filter the best candidates, and will cover these topics (37 points):

  • 1 question about History of GNU/Linux, 4 questions of Fedora and 4 about GNOME, based on this video, GNOME wiki and Fedora Website.
  • 2 questions about Installation. 5 questions regarded Linux basic commands in terminal including VI, based on the Backtrackacademy online course.
  • 5 questions related to C pointers and structure, based on the C tutorial.
  • 6 questions  Python basic functions and class based on videos.
  • 5 questions of Javascript, based on this link.
  • 3 questions of concepts of programming, based on the MIT introduction course.
  • 2 questions related to GIT.

Please register yourself here to take the exam.


  • Three lunch sessions are going to be Fedora and other three for GNOME.
  • The Linux Foundation will give  us LFS201+LFCS training/certification vouchers to those who successfully complete your training program (100% discount on this training course) and Linux Foundation Branded Sweatshirts for those that complete the program.
