Hi everyone! My name is Mehak Sachdeva and I am a first year PhD student at Arizona State University. I am very excited to be a part of GSoC and to contribute to the Python Spatial Analysis Library (PySAL) - a library I have used and learnt from tremendously.
The community bonding period went well and it was great to get in touch with the mentors and set up weekly hangout calls for the project. I was able to understand the architecture of the module I will be contributing to and the dependencies that will be a part of the project. The mentors were hands-on and instrumental in defining sub-tasks of the project for the weeks to come to better accomplish results. So far no problems were encountered and the project is expected to follow the timeline stated in the proposal.
Cheers and thanks for reading!
