Subject Google Summer of Code in Apache Airflow
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2017 21:27:31 GMT
Hi all,
I am 3rd year bachelor student from Gdańsk, Poland and I would like to participate in Google
Summer of Code. That would be the first time ever for me to take a part in this program :)

I am currently working at Intel Technology Poland as Graphics Software Engineer Intern. I
have worked here for about 1.5 year. My primary languages that I’m using (as a day to day
coder) are Python and JavaScript. I’ve been using several frameworks and technologies such
as Flask, SQLAlchemy, RabbitMQ, Redis, AngularJS and many more. Recently, I have been using
Apache Airflow as a primary framework and I find it very useful and promising for the future

Every day is another adventure, so I’m currently focusing on many other technologies that
can broaden my horizons on IT. That’s why I’m taking a part in one of the biggest competitions
on Kaggle’s platform - Data Science Bowl 2017. I was asked by my professor to join the team
of other passionate people and together with VoiceLab (local company specialised in machine
learning) try to improve lung cancer detection. That’s my first touch with machine learning
and especially neural networks in Keras/TensorFlow. It changed my perspectives for the directions
in which computer science heads towards :)

Each new technology/project/task gives me new knowledge and skills that (I hope) will make
me a better developer in the future!

I have seen that you have proposed a few projects ideas for this year. But I have got a question
to you. Is there a way to join developers of Apache Airflow and help them with this great
framework? I’ve checked its Jira board and there are many ideas for features/improvements
that can be a great GSoC topic :)

I hope to hear from you soon!
