FSF spring internship applicant looking for a GNU project

Hello everyone,

I am Darshan Kadu, a 4th-year student at VNIT, Nagpur, India, I am an FSF internship applicant for the spring. I do have experience in C, C++. Previously, I have worked with Blende in GSoC'17. I would like to contribute to the GIMP during the internship.

I am ready to work for 30-40 hrs/week.

I have attached my resume.

Can you suggest me any project or series of task to work on?

Thank you. Darshan

FSF spring internship applicant looking for a GNU project

Hi Darshan!

Thanks for offering to help with the GIMP project. There is an IRC channel, #gimp on irc.gimp.org, where you can come and chat about GIMP development matters. One idea is that you could work on implementing GObject Introspection (https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GObjectIntrospection) within GIMP, which would be a medium-sized task but would enable a lot of good things that people have wanted for quite some time.

I would suggest that you: * get up to speed on how to use "git" and branches (you'd probably want to work on a branch off master - one approach might be to share your work using a GitHub fork off the GitHub mirror of GIMP) * read the URL above about what GOI is * join the IRC channel and get a further steer on how to proceed with this - my handle is "mohawk", and the GIMP project lead is Michael Natterer, whose handle is "mitch"

Ciao,
Ed

That's interesting. How does the FSF internship work exactly? Does it require GIMP to assign any mentor too or are you mentored solely within the FSF?

The mailing list drops every attachment, so we didn't receive it.

Well there are many topics of interest. What are you the most interested by? There are lower level work on graphics algorithm and stuff, in which case, that would be rather work on GEGL. If you want to work on GIMP itself, I wrote for instance a few quick ideas the other day (when we considered participating to gsoc with GNOME, though I'm not sure this will happen):
https://wiki.gimp.org/wiki/Hacking:GSoC/2018/Ideas

Someone else (right now on a discussion in IRC; I think he said he sent an answer too but I don't see it) was interested in someone working on our API using GObject Introspection to allow more language support. Why not.

These ideas are obviously not exhaustive. If you have yourself other topics which interest you, we can discuss. Only thing is that we prefer small yet solid work which can be merged at the end of your internship rather than an awesome yet very complicated feature "on-paper", which only ends as a demo in the end and is never finished by anyone.
We have had some mitigated gsoc experience and some code from gsoc students are still rotting around after several years.

Anyway yes, we are interested. :-) We can continue discussing here, you can also drop on IRC (#gimp at irc.gimp.org), and we can also discuss privately if needed be.

Jehan

Thank you.
Darshan

I just left IRC because I need to head out. I'll try to be there tomorrow most of the day, from afternoon to evening (CET). Unless you want to make some kind of "appointment" at a specific time to discuss.
