Deadlines

hi Friends,

GSoC is not just about code but is also about time management, punctuality and dead lines [And trust me this is the difficult part of it]

It gives me immense pleasure to see that I have met all my deadlines (either set by me or teoli well in time). It is one of those moments when you just want to relax and have a sip of tea and say "Yes, I nailed it bitch". It is also one of those moments when you feel you couldnt have achieved this without the guidance from your mentor/teacher.

My next hurdle is "Final Evaluation" so figers-crossed :-)

Writing after a very long time

I think, its been ages I am writing a blog, so I will take this in order and now onwards I will try to be more accurate :-)

So, Yes I successfully cleared my mid-term evaluation. Yay!

After that, I had been working for a while on the project and its going great.

Now the worst part is, for about a week I couldn't write a single line of code. Unfortunately I had been severely ill these days and had been completely bed ridden. I did informed teoli on this and he is certainly aware of my situation. Moreover these days I was absolutely cut-off from the outside world too :'(

So, once I recover (which I hope) within next three-four days, I would be back on my project. 

I think it wont take more than a week to meet my GSoC phase1 and phase2 targets. Also, once I meet those, i think the technical parts will come to an end and I would indeed be a confirmed GSoC'er ;-) :-)

Cheers

Week 2 had ended last week and week 3 will end soon

hi Everyone,

I am back, and my mentor too. Ok, So the story of my work begins.

I know I am a bit late on this but yes, I had been very busy these days. First things first, I have a done a good portion of work from my end AFAIK. Teoli has started coming over to IRC and reviewing codes.

He has suggested some for additions and removals though he also appreciated some of my examples too.

During these days, I submitted a small patch to Html5Rocks.com. The project is now dead ;'( and my patch was a test patch. Though the good feeling was, it was accepted through Paul Irish. Also, once I get free I will push some patches there too.

Also, in the mean time I had a dog bite, my phone's screen had cracked and I am still going through dozes of vaccination.

Now, commenting on some fun part. My girlfriend is going to a party and I wont be able to make it there because tomorrow We (as in GSoC'ers and GSoC alumns) are having a meetup at google Gurgaon Office. Being a GDG Manager from Manipal, this was my idea [my bragging right] and was put in front. And I am sure tomorrow it would be a great fun meeting all of them.

The story doesn't end here. Sat and Sun I am participating in GDG Delhi event, HACK-Code for a ause. We are planning to make  an Android App using Phonegp+JQuerymobile to acheive something decent. We are using many API from Dataweave.in. And certainly there work is pretty awesome.

So, its time for me to get back to work and code something useful and helpful.

You can also follow me on Twitter or watch/fork my work at Github.

Cheers
