Hello everyone,

I am Akshay Ravindra Borse, currently in final year of B.E. (Information Technology) at K. K. Wagh Institute of Engineering Education and Research, Nashik, India. I am very well versed with programming languages like C, C++, Python, R and Java. I am very much interested in working in the field of AI in future. Currently I am working on a project in domains of Deep Learning and Computer Vision as my final year project.

As being part of GSoC it would be my pleasure to work on the project “Create a Spyder version control plugin”. As I read about this project, I felt that we can collaborate as I have the skills required for this project.

 I am quite familiar with Spyder IDE as I have been using it in the last 2 years and I have understood how much vital it is to integrate git/GitHub with Spyder is, to aid users with power of git/GitHub.
 I am having knowledge about how git/GitHub works.

I would like to be part of this project in GSoC. Kindly guide me through the process on how should I start.

@dis-is-pj @akshayborse Hey, thanks for showing your interest!

Here are some things you can do to get familiar wit h the project and give us an idea of how your skills might fit well with the projects we have available:

  • Read our Contributing guide and development wiki
  • Look through the active issues and try to work on one or two simple ones that aren't already assigned to someone
  • For the specific project(s) you are interested in, find out more about the plugin(s)/integration being proposed and think about some high-level ideas of how you might design it

As for @dis-is-pj , I'd suggest you read through the GSOC ideas list and think about which project(s) most closely match your current skills and experience, and learn more about them (e.g. spyder-reports, spyder-notebook, rope/refactoring, etc).

And @akshayborse since you've identified a particular project you are interested in, you could get familiar with the git-cola and qgit codebases and how they might integrate into a Spyder plugin, as well as look at other Spyder plugins or or cookiecutter template to get a basic understanding of our plugin architecture.

Thanks again!
