Weekly Check-In #1

Published: 06/21/2022


I'm Sreelakshmi Jayarajan, a second year IT undergraduate student at GEC Palakkad. I'm working on a project for automating atmospheric research flight planning at Mission Support System.

What did you do this week?

I wasn't well most of the week, but I spent some time tinkering with different parts of retriever.py and also continued understanding the flow of MSUI using a debugger.

What is coming up next?

I'm going to start refactoring the "top view" part of retriever.py to use MSS functionalities.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yep. Although I was able to update and run retriever.py, I wasn't able to make it produce proper plots. Joern helped me with providing an updated version of retriever.py with MSS data, which worked.

I’m really excited to learn more and keep contributing to MSS! Thanks to my mentors, the MSS community, Python Software Foundation and Google for this opportunity!
