It’s May 14, and this is when we officially start coding for GSoC, 2018 edition. This time, I would be working on improving the Fedora Community App with the Fedora project. This marks the beginning of a journey of 3 months of coding, patching, debugging, git (mess) and the awesome discussions with my mentors and the community.
One of the very interesting part of Google Summer of Code is the payments. It’s a large factor that will motivate you to continue your project amidst the very hot and humid Indian summer. Setting up the payment correctly is a really nervous experience, as the questions asked during sign-up are bewildering. I aim to answer some questions that came to my mind while signing up to Payoneeer. If you are new to GSoC, I hope this will be helpful for you.
LibreCores.org lists free and open source “IP Cores” on the website for the community to view and use. Currently the website extracts the project readme and license and renders them on the project page, along with links to the project homepage and git repository.
GraphQL is a query language which allows clients specify what data is required, and exactly the same structure of the data is returned from the server. It provides an excellent alternative to traditional REST API designs. Depeloped internally and subsequently released publicly by Facebook, it is now being increasingly used in many websites such as Github.
