Week Five | First Evaluation ✔

by Rohit R Chattopadhyay

July 2019, has brought in several happy moments for me, first passing the First Evaluation of GSoC and second being my first paycheck.
My evaluation feedback was positive and I am thankful to my mentor Augustin, for highlight things which I was not doing correctly.
Being a part of the Open Source community it is my responsibility to maintain proper documentation for future contributors, I was lacking in this, in future I will take care of this.

This week, our focus will be on the data generation pipeline, some major decisions will be made after receiving feedback from the user group of our application.
I contributed to some related projects in Open Source community, this has helped me gain exposure and develop self-belief.

Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
