Introducing Román Rodríguez

Hello, everyone! My name is Román Rodríguez and I'm a venezuelan 6th semester software engineering student. I have experience working with languages like Javascript, Python, C, Java, and SQL. I've used technologies such as React and Node, so I feel very excited about this project.

This is my first time contributing to an Open Source project, so my first question is if there's a problem with that? Sure, I've used Git in the past for university and personal projects.

Another thing is that I have used Javascript in the past but never Typescript, which I'm of course willing to learn as soon as I can. I don't think it will be hard for me, based on my experience with other programming languages. However, I would like to ask you guys if that could be a problem that could hold me back in this project?

Thanks in advance for the responses! I'm not a native English speaker, so I'm sorry if I made any mistakes.

Román Rodríguez.


Welcome Román!

That's not a problem, it's the first time for many applicants.

I would say it probably won't be an issue because you have experience with typed languages like Java.

Looks good to me :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot! I hope it's not too late for me.

I have one last question that's been intriguing me. The pull request guidelines states that:

Pull requests must be based on an issue that existed before GSoC was started , or based on an issue created by a moderator.

So I would like to know if the start of GSoC was March 29 or March 9,I'm a bit confused on that, sorry.

It was indeed 9 March. But there might have been more valid issues created since then - in general any bug report with the "medium" or "high" label is valid, or if you have any doubt feel free to ask on the issue itself.

What we want to avoid is students creating their own issues and then creating their own pull requests based on it. So as long as you don't do that you're fine.
