I have two projects in mind that I could also advise.

1. GNU Taler Wallet for Android and/or iOS

The current wallet only supports integration with browsers that have the
WebExtension API.  The biggest part of the wallet's code base is
plaform-agnostic and written in TypeScript.

The goal of this project is to add support for new platforms.  Instead
of starting from scratch, the existing code should be ported by using a
framework such as React Native or Apache Cordova, which allows JS/HTML5
applications to run nearly like a native app.  New code must be written
for platform-specific integration.

Familiarity with JavaScript and the web platform are required,
TypeScript and React Native / Apache Cordova are a plus.

2. Payment/Donation Buttons and Code-less Payments with GNU Taler

To accept payments with GNU Taler currently some custom (though simple!)
code must be written to integrate with an existing web shop or frontend.
 The goal of this project is to create a component that sits between the
seller's frontend and the GNU Taler merchant backend.  This component
should have a web interface, where payment buttons or payment forms can
be configured that can by copy-pasted into the seller's frontend as
static HTML/JS.  Bonus goals are inventory management, where the seller
can configure the available stock for an item, and will get notified
when their stock runs low.

Familiarity with the web platform and at least one frontend language /
framework (such as Python+Flask, Python+Django, nodejs, etc.) are required.
