GSoC’ 16 with Drupal
I am glad to tell you that I have been selected in GSoC’ 16 to work on the Media module for Drupal 8.
The Drupal Media team has been working on various Media related modules for a couple of years now. Since all the modules are almost functional, now is the time to work on a complete Drupal 8 media module which would bundle the components and configurations of the existing independent media modules.
From April 22nd 2016, the day the projects were announced, to May 22nd 2016, students participate in something called “Community Bonding”. During this period, the students are required to interact with the community, introduce themselves, discuss about the project details with mentors etc.
I am lucky enough to work on this project under Janez Urevc (slashrsm) and Tadej Baša (paranojik) who have been involved with Drupal for years now and have been contributing to Drupal Media as well. In the meeting with them we discussed about how we would work on the module and weekly meeting timings.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Drupal’s Google Summer of Code Admins Matthew Lechleider (Slurpee) and Chandan Singh (cs_shadow) for their constant support.
I am super excited to start working on the module and would be posting my weekly progress on this blog!
