On May 17th I received the great news: Python Argentina, the organization I applied to, under the umbrella of Python Software Foundation (PSF), accepted me to contribute to their project titled PyZombis. Since then, all accepted students entered the community bonding period. For three weeks, I've been in touch with my mentors and with two other students.
PyZombis is intended to be a MOOC to teach Python to Spanish speakers.
This article is my first check-in of the journey I'm beginning. I'll answer 3 simple questions. Hope you enjoy.
What did I do this week?So far, I've done solid progress. I got to know my working team and discussed everything around the project. We decided the techniques of how we'll be working this GSoC, and most importantly, we have separated our initial proposals into milestones and issues in GitHub. Also, as I'm new to GitHub, I had to learn its basics. I learned about PEP8, the Style Guide for Python Code, and about a tool that checks whether my code follows those rules, named
flake8. I learned about
Playwrightas well, a tool to automate tests for web apps. Now, I feel ready to start the coding period.
