Hello, my fellow Scala developers! I am currently a junior Computer Science student passionate about combining the idea of functional programming and OOP. I cannot tell you how happy I am the day I found there is such thing in the world and it is called Scala!
This year I am going to participate in Google Summer of Code. Without a second thought, I jumped right into the boat of Scala. Right now I am looking into Dotty Documentation Compiler and Scastie.
For DottyDoc, it is fascinating for me to see the development of API and documentation go side by side. Since I have some experience working with Programming Language, that I built a Scheme Interpreter using Scheme, (purely as a practice. I know it is stupid), and a working knowledge of web programming, I am confident that I can actively contribute to the project. It is also going to be a great educational opportunity for me, as I will get to learn more about Scala and compiler implementation along the way.
For Scastie, I really like the idea of having an online code editor, mainly for its experimental use for beginners and for demonstration purpose in the future. I have been building programming tools on Emacs using Lisp in the past, so I have a little bit of experience. Web programming is also in my toolkit.
Who should I talk to at this moment? Since the deadline is approaching, I am also trying to get the proposal writing started. Where would be a good place to look for ideas related to these two projects?
Thank you so much for reading to the end!
