specifically pinging @DennisSchwartz and @sarthak-sehgal for feedback
@yochannah much better now. It need to be updated at obf's idea page as well for new newcomers.
Hey y'all! Here's my random tip of the day: When you're writing a project proposal for GSoC (or to be honest for most projects with a strict timeline) always make sure to leave time for testing / bug fixes and add some "bonus" features at the end of the timeline. If you have time to do the extra bits, that's great, but if you leave only non-essential stuff to the end, it doesn't matter if it doesn't happen if/when something goes more slowly than planned.
Thanks, will keep this in mind! @yochannah ! :)
Hey all, I'll be reviewing all the PRs by tomorrow. Apologies for the delay, had a lot on my plate last week! You all might want to start off messing around with the slush generator too :)
That'll be great :) . Thanks
Hey all - quick reminder that now's a good time to be thinking about your project proposals if you haven't already!!
@/all, a general advice for the proposal - ideally you should be able to follow the timeline you lay out comfortable, that is, do not overcommit and try to have a buffer period at the end. We generally look for a minimum viable product (MVP) to be created by the end of the summer.
@sarthak-sehgal this is Jeevan Prakash from New Delhi. I have written a proposal for "Redesign the antiSMASH submission page using web components and Redux". I want to show it to mentors of the project before submitting
