While I was working on my project I learned a lot of things like —  writing quality code and effectively testing the code. More importantly, I learned the importance of Continuous Integration and Unit Testing. So, GSoC really helped me in growing myself on my road to becoming a super cool programmer.

I’m extremely happy that I selected the Open States as my GSoC organization. I would like to thank my mentors Miles sir and James sir for providing me the guidance in successfully completing the GSoC project.
