So now I am a Drizzle Developer

The desire to contribute to opensource sprouted in me quite a long time ago. Browsing over the web and learning more about it, learning more from my friends, the eagerness reached a peak. It was at this point that I came to know about Google Summer of Code. To put it in a nutshell, Google Summer of Code ( GSoC ) is a program hosted by Google, where a lot of opensource organizations participate. Students can suggest their project ideas or develop existing project ideas, work on and develop their module(s) and receive stipend from Google.

I dived into Drizzle and chose a project on Improved Performance Regression Monitoring, which is related to Quality Assurance ( QA ). My project got selected and henceforth I need to start coding for my module. With the support from my mentor, Drizzle developers and a friend of mine, I learnt the basics. I also did some work on learning python, as I had to code my module in python and I was new to that language.

The three months time working with Google and Drizzle was really a groovy experience for me. I learnt a lot, enjoyed my work, and made friends and so..on. And at the close of the program, I had my modules completed, generated good documentations and all set. My code was merged into the Drizzle Trunk Β ( the main source code ) . And that’s the most awaited moment!! I have become a Developer ( contributor ) at Drizzle!! A dream came true : )
