I’m Rikito Taniguchi, a prospective grad student at Tokyo Institute technology and occasional contributor to some scalameta projects. https://github.com/tanishiking
Let me ask about Google Summer of Code 2021. Is Scala organization going to apply for GSoC 2021? https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/
If it is, and there’s someone who’s kindly willing to be a mentor, I’d like to propose a project like “More Scala3 support in Metals” and really interested in working on it as my GSoC project this year. Is there someone responsible for running GSoC this year?
I believe rich tooling support is vital to improving the adoption of the new language (Scala3 in this case).
While Scala3 is under active development, there’s still a lot of things to do in developer tools as @tgodzik mentioned in Metals and Scala 3
I sometimes work on Metals on my holidays, but I would really appreciate if I can work on these works full-time (at least that period) and have the opportunity to increase the developer experience of Scala3.
