Hey, there! 

Welcome to my second weekly check-in blog.

What did you do this week?

This is supposed to my third week after coding period started. I have done a lot of things until then. I used this whole first month(almost a month) in designing prototypes on Adobe XD. Firstly I designed initial wireframe of the Landing page of EOS icons(The one I am working on from scratch). Then I designed the cheat sheet which is like a subpage of eos-icons(which will contain all the icons). Then recently I created the High definition mockup of the Landing page by filling colours and details on the webpage and also I merged the landing page with the cheat sheet. You can check these out at - https://xd.adobe.com/view/1e347146-935b-4dec-498f-0ac63d5c7f1a-6805/.

I don't know if this link is still working when you are reading this or not because Adobe provides only one link on the free account and hence I have to generate new links every time I create something new on the Adobe XD. Apologies if it's not working.

What is coming up next?

Now that my designs are ready, I need to implement those on the web address - https://eos-icons.eosdesignsystem.com/.I need to code the frontend of the designs that I created recently using Adobe XD. This is going to be amazing. 

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes, I had a hard time figuring the layout and the design for the landing page and the cheatsheet. Since I was trying to think something new and out of the box from scratch, therefore, I took more time than I expected. Other than this it has been amazing till now and I hope I will get much better soon.

So, I will shut up, for now, thanks for reading all this. 

Peace!

Second Blog - GSOC 2019

Hello everyone and welcome to my second blog.

Its been two weeks since the coding period started and this is getting more interesting. The first week was all about just thinking and thinking because I had to figure out a completely new design for our website and that's why I was not able to do much and hence wasn't solving any issues or helping in other related stuff. But this second week was a bit different, not only I completed two main wireframe design prototypes(one for the EOS Icons landing page and one for the cheatsheet where we will have all the icons) but also after we had our weekly meeting I helped one of my mentors with the EOS game that we are working on. We discussed new levels and features of the game and how we can use p5js for that game.

Till now I am having a great time and I think this whole journey will be lifechanging and also I would learn a lot of things here.

Thanks for reading :)

Hello and welcome to my first weekly check-in blog.

What did you do this week?
This was my first week of work after the official coding started. I discussed with my mentors more about what exactly needs to be done, then I started with the webpage. I am working on EOS-icons landing page right now, this is a part of EOS Design system but it needs to be separated in a sense that it needs more attention and that's why it needs its separate landing page from where icons can be accessed.

So, I started my work by creating an initial wireframe for the webpage. Then I shared with my mentors and they have given a lot of feedback on it. Now I need to work on the feedback and improve the design accordingly.

What is coming up next?
First of all, I need to check those issues that mentors mentioned and resolve them. We are going to have a meeting this Wednesday, we will discuss what needs to be done after this part of the work is completed.

Did you get stuck anywhere?
Not particularly. Since this week was mostly about wireframing therefore I was having a hard time figuring out the structure and layout of the EOS-icons webpage. Other than this I had a great time.

Thanks for reading till the end!

First Blog - GSOC 2019

Hi everyone. I am Abhinandan Sharma, an undergraduate Computer Science student from India. This summer I am working with EOS Design System (Python Sub-Org).

I am posting this Blog on 28 May. Community bonding period is already over. In the community bonding period, I had meetings with my mentors, it was fun. Also, I learned how Scrum works, we are going to use scrum for our work during this summer. We have hangout meetings every week where we discuss how we will proceed further. Yesterday coding started officially. I have started the first part of my project. The first part of my project(Before first evaluation) mainly includes Designing prototypes on Adobe XD. I need to come up with fresh Ideas and Design a Website from Scratch. This will be an Icons Website for EOS Design system.

Currently, I am looking over best Icons websites like Streamlineicons.com, etc for better Ideas on Icons website. It's kind of going nuts right now. I am loving my part of the work.

I think that's it for now. I will explain the rest when I start doing it. More blogs coming soon.
