As I had posted in the last post, I successfully completed my Google Summer of Code 2015 with phpMyAdmin and today, I was unanimously accepted into the development team of phpMyAdmin, which is also its Project Leadership commitee (PLC).
I will continue to contribute to the project with new features, bug-fixes, testing patches and more, thus giving back to the community as much as I can.
Finally, I would like to thank the whole team for extending the invite. I am indeed honored to be a part of the team.🙂
Looking forward to meeting the whole team in person!
Last night, the results for Google summer of Code, 2015 – Final evaluations were declared! And yes! I got through successfully!
It was a majestic to see that mail from the melange site telling me that I have passed. After 3 awesome months with phpMyAdmin and under a great mentor in Isaac, it was indeed a great moment to get a confirmation that my work has been accepted.
I have been continuing to contribute to phpMyAdmin in whatever way I am able. Now that 4.5.0 – beta1 released, I expect some bugs might come up from GSoC 2015’s students code. I will keep trying to fix some bugs, implement some features and more. Let’s see how it unfolds!
And yes, the payments would be in order(:P) now that I have completed the program successfully🙂
I cannot forget to thank my friends Varad, Prannoy, Biplab, Rajath, Vipul, Ajinkya for their invaluable support.
Thanks Isaac, Marc and the whole phpMyAdmin team for giving me a chance to work on a GSoC project with phpMyAdmin. Totally enjoyed working with all you guys.
