Week 5 : Speeding up

Published: 07/12/2021

Hello folks! The past weeks have been quite amazing when it comes to learning exciting and new things which are just fabulous in terms of innovative use and technology implemented in software development. As the scrutinization of the first evaluation rounds are approaching, things need to be wrapped up quickly as they were planned to be done before this evaluation.

What did I do this week?

This week I tried to finish the "web map service" automation for the tutorials. Along with that, a major issue that was arisen regarding the display of the mouse pointer in the recorded videos was resolved. Actually, earlier the screen grabbing modules used to take screenshots were not capturing the mouse pointer on the screen as the convention. The implementation of the PyVirtualDisplay was half done and shifted for later work as decided with the mentors.

What is coming up next?

Next, there is going to be the first round of evaluations about the work done until now. Moreover, I will discuss with the mentors about the next set of tutorials that need to be created based on the use case scenarios' priority.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

Most of the modules that provide functionality to take screenshots of the screen does not provide with an option to capture the mouse pointer. There are much less resources regarding that on the internet. Somehow, I got some ideas about how to implement that on Linux and managed implementing it on other platforms.
