In two weeks the Google Summer of Code 2016 will end.
I’m planning to finish my project in the next week, leaving the final week to clean code and write some documentation. I’m currently working on the development of the Object Diagram, and this work is on review. There’re some things missing to implement, and Oliver Kellog and Jonathan Riddel are helping me to solve the issues and finish this task.
In the beginning of this month, I stopped to work on my project. I was traveling a lot and not having time to sit down in front of my laptop and work. After I come back to my home, I started to have a lot of difficulties to go back to work like before.
I reached the guys on the Facebook group to see if they could cheer me up. And they did. Also, I’m in a phase of my life that my depression is on my way, and is being really fucking hard go through this. I’m sharing this here, because I’m not the only one with depression, and I won’t be the last one. And it’s good for me put some things out.
I’m happy that in Lakademy(May) and Randa Meetings(June), I worked a lot on my project, and that will allow me to finish the project until the beginning of the final evaluation.
I had a lot of issues with my mentor, I was lost most of the time, but the community that I’m in, KDE, had my back, and now I’m having someone to review my work, and that is giving me a new breath to continue my work and finish the project.
I learned a lot with my project, and programming to me is like a puzzle, I need to solve it, but sometimes the puzzle gets too hard to solve, so I give a break and read a book or watch some series to clean my head to go back to work later with my mind refreshed.
Join KDE was one of the best things that happened in my life lately. All the experience that I had since I join the community, let me grew up personally and professionally.
Well, when I finish my project, I will share with you all the things that I did, the difficulties and the challenges of this work. But for now, I leave you with…
That’s all folks!
