Google Summer of Code Weekly Feedback

We are going to try something new. This is in addition to your blog post. The goal is to catch if you are behind in your timeline early.

@gsoc2020students:

Answer the following questions in a once-weekly post on Fridays:

  • What progress have you made this week?
  • What do I plan to do next week?
  • Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?

The point of these are to catch any issues you are having and to handle them early.

Any questions can be directed towards @judywawira, @sunbiz, or myself.

What progress have you made this week?

During this first week of community bonding from May 4 to May 8, I have discussed with my mentors @sunbiz @r0bby about what API to use for fetching nearby Hospitals. I will use OpenStreetMaps Overpass API.

I have read its documentation carefully to fetch nearby hospitals

I have also read documentation for Scrapy .(Scrapy is a free and open-source web-crawling framework written in Python).I will use it for scrapping hospitals CDM.

What do I plan to do next week?

In the coming week of community bonding I will make a detailed Plan (week by week) for the coding period beginning on June 1 & will share with my mentors.

I will discuss with my mentors if I have any doubt

Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?

Not yet, but I may have college End Semester Exams in July if Lockdown ends due to COVID-19.If that happens I will put extra hours after exams & will definitely complete this project.

What progress have you made this week?

In this first week of Community Bonding, I was informed by my mentors of a slight change in my project title. I have started reading about Quantization of models. I have understood the various methods of Quantization and Pruning and I am currently reading about the various ways that this can be implemented in code.

What do I plan to do next week?

  1. Try to implement a few sample quantization methods.

  2. Communicate with my mentors and understand the final requirements of the project.

  3. Discuss and set up a weekly plan of action.

Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?

No blockers yet. I am waiting for instructions from my mentors. My university is planning to conduct examinations in the month of July. Taking this into consideration, I will plan my Coding period.

What progress have you made this week?

In the first week of the community bonding (May 4 - May 8), I had a video conference call with the mentors @iainbarclay @Maria-Freytsis and discussed in brief regarding the project. I had started going through hyperledger-indy SDK which the Evernym uses underneath as I did not have access to the Evernym’s mobile SDK.

What do I plan to do next week?

  • Communicate with Evernym team on integrating the SDK with the Flutter app

  • Discuss with the mentors about the choice of the stack to build the app(Flutter vs ReactNative or Native Android)

Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?

Yes. The only hurdle is that integrating SDK with Flutter is very ambitious and we are open to other alternatives if that doesn’t work out.

What progress have you made this week?

In the second week of the community bonding (May 9 - May 15), I have access to the mobile SDK of Evernym now. I went through the wiki and one of their sample projects and recreated it in my local system. It was a native android project, and I am yet to test it on Flutter. Also, I have been working on finding a way for the Flutter app to communicate with the respective native Android or iOS code.

What do I plan to do next week?

  • @maria has shared a report on birth registration. I would be going through that, making points, and would discuss it in the next video call.
  • Discuss with @iainbarclay and Evernym team regarding the SDK and it’s use cases in our project.

Have you had any blockers or issues that are impeding your project?

None as of now.
