Weekly Check-in #1

Published: 06/07/2021

Alright then as this is the first ever post for GSoC let me introduce myself and what I'm doing. My name is D R Siddhartha, friends call me DR(yeah those two letters). I like running and hiking(hopefully I get to hike Iceland one day). I'll be working on Scrapy, a web-crawling framework. Specifically I'll be working on its Feed features, adding enhancements.

Now about the 3 mandatory questions:
1. What did you do this week?
A. I started the week by getting a vaccine shot. The side effects manifested the next day and was horrendous. So I had to delay the scheduled meeting. But me and my mentor have already been discussing on the API designs for the enhancements. We made the discussions public in Github so other people can discuss as well. The discussions are available here: #5168, #5161 and #5169.

2. What is coming up next?
A. The coding phase starts now. I'll be starting my work on the first of the 3 features that I'll be implementing - Item Filters. Some API discussions have already been done. So now the implementation work starts.

3. Did you get stuck anywhere?
A. Not so far.
