Weekly Check-In #1

Published: 06/08/2021

Hello Everyone!! I am Harsh, a first year undergrad at BIT, Bangalore - India. This summer I will be working with CVE Binary Tool under the umbrella of Python Software Foundation.

What did you do in Community Bonding Period?

The community bonding period helped me to know my mentors and set a communication medium. During this period, I was familiarizing myself with the codebase and I also learnt various things that would help me with the project like - web-scrapping, about various modules and many more things.

What is coming up next?

I will be working on creating the extraction process of binary files. Since, cve-bin-tool already has code for extracting files and getting strings, so my task here would be to understand this and use it in the "Helper Script".

Did you get stuck anywhere?

I was intimidated by the codebase at first, but as I learnt various stuff during the "community bonding period", I felt more confident and now I feel like I could tackle any challenge in my way :)
