Weekly Check-In #1

Published: 06/08/2021

Hi everyone! My name is Bruno Messias currently I'm a Ph.D student at USP/Brazil. In this summer I'll develop new tools and features for FURY-GL Specifically, I'll focus into developing a system for collaborative visualization of large network layouts using FURY and VTK.

What did I do this week?

In my first meeting the mentors explained the rules and the code of conduct inside the FURY organization. We also made some modifications in the timeline and discussed the next steps of my project. I started coding during the community bonding period. The next paragraph shows my contributions in the past weeks
  • A FURY/VTK webrtc stream system proposal: to the second part of my GSoC project I need to have a efficiently and easy to use streaming system to send the graph visualizations across the Internet. In addition, I also need this to my Ph.D. Therefore, I’ve been working a lot in this PR. This PR it’s also help me to achieve the first part of my project. Because I don’t have a computer with good specs in my house and I need to access a external computer to test the examples for large graphs.
  • Minor improvements into the shader markers PR and fine tunning open-gl state PR.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I’ve been stuck into a performance issue (copying the opengl framebuffer to a python rawarray) which caused a lot of lag in the webrtc streamer. Fortunately, I discovered that I’ve been using rawarrays in the wrong way. My commit solved this performance issue.

What is coming up next?

In this week I'll focus on finish the #432 and #422 pull-requests.
