Alright folks. It’s officially an end to the amazing 12 weeks of Google Summer of Code 2016! These 12 weeks have certainly helped me become a better person, both personally and professionally. I’ve had a chance to interact and learn from some very interesting and amazing minds from coala. Sadly, I couldn’t meet all but a few of them during the EuroPython conference this summer.
First and foremost, I would like to pay my eternal gratitude to my mentor Attila Tovt who patiently helped me improve the patch through multiple reviews. I was learning something new with each iteration. The major take away for me from his mentorship would be:
There is always a hack to something, then there is a solution to it.
Sadly, I couldn’t meet him during EuroPython conference, but I am hopeful to pay my regards in person someday! :)
Next, I must thank Abdeali for helping and guiding when I started my journey with coala and also Lasse Schuirmann. Well after all he is coala’s BDFL! Wondering what that means? Benevolent Dictator for Life :D
Hmm, on a serious note, if I say I am going to continue contributing to coala or any other FOSS that I may come across in future, one of the major reasons and an influencer would be Lasse! The guy is totally amazing. I don’t think anything else could describe him better than his own words that he said during EuroPython’16
Guys! Don’t just be a participant. It’s boring! Create a conference!
Impressive isn’t it? That’s Lasse for you! :)
I would also thank fellow GSoC students and now my new friends - Adrian, Adhithya, Alex, Karan, Araf, Sanket and Abhay. I look forward to stay in touch with them even after GSoC! :)
Past summer, I’ve contributed and maintained coala-html and coala-website projects. The commits and live demos are available online.
