Hi Alessandro,

I can help out on the UI / Front-end front. I have already posted about
Google Code-In to my high school students via Facebook. Please let me know
if it is fine or whatever is required from my side.
I will be on vacation after December 15th to January 3rd (roughly), so will
not be able to code a lot but can definitely stick around for helping out
students. :)
