Documentation and Clean up21 Aug 2015 GSoC-2015 · SymEngine
Hey folks! Today my GSoC period has officially ended. It was one of the best experiences I have had in my life. The level of exposure that you get with Google Summer of Code is unmatched. The things I learnt, will always be with me. The people I met will never cease to inspire me. This is the best thing a sophomore can do in his/her summers. I could go on and on about this, and it will never be enough. I would suggest you to have a shot at it. Even if you don’t get it, you get to learn a lot in the process.
I have prepared some nice Beginner Contributor Guides both for C Wrappers and Ruby Wrappers. If you were wondering where to look to begin contributingto SymEngine, these are the ones you need.
Though I have pushed the symengine gem to RubyGems.org, the version available there still doesn’t work. I will have to add a few more scripts before it works.
I have also sent PR to sciruby-notebooks to include the SymEngine notebooks.
And I did send the post for SciRuby.com. I am glad John and Ondrej took time to read it again and again, and refined it. After a few days, my post will be up there at SciRuby.com! =D
I fixed a TODO in the cwrapper tests and replaced all the heap allocated temporary instances of
basic_struct by stack allocated instances in the source files for Ruby wrappers.
I will miss writing this part of the post :). I am indeed going to continue contributing to SymEngine! Not only the Ruby Wrappers but also the core SymEngine. I am eager to write a LaTeX printer (a function that outputs the string representation of objects in TeX format). Anyone interested can join me. Imagine the ruby wrappers giving a beautiful, well formatted output in the IRuby notebooks, the kind that you see in textbooks, made possible because of a function that you wrote!! If that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will.
