Thank you and sorry for the late reply. Yes indeed, my Github name is the same. So I briefly want to introduce my self.
I am doing my Ph.D. in numerical biophysics in the field of hierarchical Markov models of all-atom protein simulations. I did my B. Sc. and M. Sc. in physics were I learned c++ and python. 2018 I finally made the switch for daily plotting and data analysis from c+++gnuplot to python+matplotlib. Since then, I use matplotlib on a weekly-basis. Writing many scripts I even started to move some frequently used patterns into a pypi package prettypyplot. It still is in beta stage, but it should highlight that I am really interested in matplotlib
Since November 2019 I maintain the amazing icon pack ameixa were I mainly learned the basics of git. And now would like to participate in gsoc to make the next step: contributing to a larger project.
In case you want to see more in details you can check out my github page: https://braniii.github.io/
And I have two questions:
- What are the requirements? I guess the project will be completely in python?
- Could some of the mentors tell me how much time it takes. I saw that this year gsoc has announced a time-limit of 175 hours. Is this realistic?
