The experience : Awesome , awesome and awesome.
So much learning in so little time , connecting with devs across the world , being associated to a community ,bootstrapping my open-source contribution, yes , that's what I wanted from GSoC :D
Mentors and the Project
Irene Cortinovis and Gianluca Rigoletti . These two have been answering to every query , be it trivial or not from the very starting to till now. Every time , they responded ,and unblocked me fromthe tasks. They assigned me tasks in a very planned manner. Lucky , to have mentor such as them.
What I enjoy the most , is the tech group , where all discussions takes place. Every time someone asks anything , it's fun to discuss on a common group , it makes everyone learn something . Bots too add the fun element to the discussions.
