1. What did you do this week?
During the community bonding my mentors and I set up a communication channel, i.e. I joined the GSoC channel in ScrapingHub's Slack instance. I also made sure that I am able to work on the Scrapy code base (have all the requirements installed, etc.). Today is the first day where I am working on my project. I am working on a basic integration of Redis into Scrapy.
2. What is coming up next?
This week (week 1) I plan on implementing a new disk-based queue with Redis as a message queue backend. On Tuesday I will have the first weekly meeting with my mentors Adrian, Julio and Nikita.
3. Did you get stuck anywhere?
So far everything is working as expected.
