Google Summer of Code 2019 with Gnome-Gitg

Hello Everyone,

I am really excited to share with you all that this summer I will be working full-time with Gnome on the project Implement side-by side diff view on the Gitg application.

I am really grateful to the community who considered me the right person for the job and gave me this wonderful opportunity.

I believe in learning and believe me I have never learned anywhere better than being here in GNOME from my last 8 months of journey here.

I have learnt things like:-

  1. Understanding Code base
  2. Basic git skills
  3. Communication skills
  4. Managing time
  5. Reading Docs


These are just a few to name and also few in quantity, a whole mountain of things still remain which I believe I will be getting to learn this summer with Gnome.

I can’t thank enough to Google as well who introduced and sponsored this program. The most important part I like here was that Google gave organisations freedom to choose the project and the students which to me seems like that Google really respects the freedom of Organisations and their vision. So kudos to Google ๐Ÿ™‚

I know maybe I am a little low on skills for the project but my motive always comes up if my mentor trust me and I believe he knows my capabilities more than I know myself. I really look forward to work with Albfan and I believe that out of any other benefit which GSOC gives to their students this is the most precious one.

I have so many people to thank for this : Csoriano, Exalm, Andre, Chergert, Bil, Albfan, …..

If I missed any one’s name here’s the final:- Developers of GNOME ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s my great fortune to be part of this family.

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
