As every student, you have assignements, this means that you need to know what do you want to achieve next. This week I had 3 rough tests. I think I did good on them. Right now I want to focus my attention on finishing my cEP till the end of this week.

Oh, i forgot, on saturday I have my 1st exam from this session. So I need to learn for it.

I think for now, I’m on track with my issues. Unfortunately I made some mistakes on my cEP so I need to rewrite it.

That’s for this week. Goodbye!

Writing cEP

It’s not easy to write a good cEP that explains what you will achieve in your project.

Last week I tried to do that, I think I’m on the right track. Also, with the help of my mentors I writed a Google Form for our community that contains mockups of how our coala CLI should look like. I find really hard to think of a good design for the interface, that will suits for our users.

I got some feedback from our community. I hope in this week I’ll finish my cEP because the deadline for the Bounding Phase is coming.

Well, that’s for now, see ya!

Start from scratch

Last week I started working on my cEP (coala Enhancement Proposals).

cEP’s are in place so features in coala will be designed before implementation. Implementing major features usually happens from a technical perspective and may lead to not well designed content – developer and user wise. This can especially save a lot of coding work when big features are written which are oftentimes not well enough designed initially.

This also makes sure, major features are properly documented.

Also, I started working on the feedback Google Form for the coala community. Also, I started working on the feedback Google Form for the coala community. Also, I’ve designed some mockups for this Form so that the community can choose between them or add their own ideas of the ideal Command Line Interface design.

That’s for now! See ya!

My GSoC adventure begins

Well as you guessed from the title, I was accepted at Google Summer of Code. The results were declared on 4th May 19.00 (GMT + 3). I searched for coala organization on the GSoC site. I was so nervous. After some delay (~3 minutes) the site worked fine so I could see the View Projects button. I pressed it and I saw the list. 10 people from our organization were accepted! That’s awesome because is our 1st year as an organization.

I scrolled a little and I found my name on the page. I was so happy and proud of myself!!! Well, I think I should talk a little about my projects and why I want to do this. My project Improve the coala CLI is about our command line interface that we use. Why and what functionalities I will bring? That’s for the next week!


Special thanks goes to Adrian Zatreanu and other mentors from coala. I was able to achieve something I never thought I would.
