Finally, got selected for the prestigious google summer of code 2016 (GSoC’ 16). GSoC is a yearly summer internship program conducted by Google in connection with open source organizations where students get an opportunity to work on projects under an experienced panel of mentors.
Congrats to all those who have attempted for this selection process. The proposal writing itself is a wonderful experience where we could work with many high profile people, discussing a lot about the possible implementation patterns of various projects.
This was the first time I was applying for this program and luckily by god’s grace, everything clicked well and I am into the final list of selected members for this year’s GSoC. So, I will be coding for Drupal, on the project, ‘Port Search Configuration Module to Drupal 8’. I am mentored by Naveen Valecha, Neetu Morwani and Karthik Kumar.
April 2016 was really a lucky month for me. Apart from this internship, my team ended up as runner ups in the Amrita Super Minds Quiz finals. I also got one of my article published on contributing to Drupal in the upcoming edition of Open Source For You, Asia magazine.
Hoping to have a nice summer ahead.
