* Choosing the module/project to work on GSoC. * Started reading about previous year work
and what is expected this year. * Tried to share more and more ideas in mailing thread and gitter chat room.
Application submission started. 15 March 2016 (00:00 night) when I saw the link for application
was opened. It was tight schedule for next week(because of exams and my travel). I started writing the application that night itself. I almost prepared my application that night only. It took me around 6-7 hours. I slept around 6:30AM :p
Application submission deadline was 25 march. On 16 March at the evening I shared the application docs in mailing thread for review and comment. Thanks for SymPy memebers they started reviewing and gave the feedback. I edited the application accordingly and used some tools to make docs more beautiful and clean. On 20th March I went home for Holi festival and submitted the appkication on 22th march after final review.
When I came back from home, count down started for the date of annoncement. Announcement date of the selected project was 22 april. Meanwhile I tried to fix some bugs and tried to share more details about the idea/project.
I wanted to pass these day as soon as possible. And the day 22 April came, after the college time I came to room in tensed mood. I wanted to pass the time, chess is the best thing for this. I played chess from the evening to night and late night 12:30AM selected project announced. That time made me so happy, I really saw my name many times in the site and got email from SymPy and GSoC team.
I love SymPy community and I can't open any tap on my browser without SymPy gitter chat room and mailing list, whenever I am free. I will continue my contribution and will finish my todo list as soon as possible.
