BeagleBoard.org has applied for participation in Google Code-In 2014. This is the page for collecting ideas for GCI.
For tasks of the higher level, participating students are expected to be able to sucessfully compile (and subsequently cross-compile) a C program. There are many resources available on the internet to that effect. Those needing further support may ask on the IRC Channel #beagle where community members will be able to guide them through this process.
Where required, students will need to buy their own hardware i.e a BeagleBone Black and any added hardware components like sensors, cameras, displays etc for testing. Due to the nature of the contest, BeagleBoard.org will not be able to provide hardware to the participating students.
Create screencast & modify documentation showing how to update software image
Currently there's only this oficial documentation showing how to update the board. The idea is to modified this documentation a more user friendly and add the section explaining how to update the image using a linux distribution. When the documentation is a done, create 2 screencast explaining the process. One screencast is for windows users and the other for linux users.

Google Code-In does not have a specific concept of mentors as Google Summer of Code does. However you can contact any one of these for any help related to the work.
