Outreachy week 2 and 3

HAPPY 2K16 All of you 

Here is now the successful end of two more weeks. Whatwg spec documentation is very diverse and big and to get it thoroughly is a very big thing, i think. But this week has been a achievement for me as i have been getting most of the points how i have to work on the spec and it’s issues. This week i also kept an eye over my writing skills too, as just solving the bug is not enough, presenting the PR and making it easy to understand for others is also very important. Thanks to Domenic Denicola(Domenic)

In the 2nd Week, i mostly first sorted out which bugs i have to work on and here is the To-Do List for this week:

  1. https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/388
  2. https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/115
  3. https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/331
  4. https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/345


The Bugs i have successfully worked upon till now are:

  1. https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/418
  2. https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/449
  3. https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/456


We (my mentor annevk and me) do a status meeting every Thursday. Every meeting is very helpful to create a clear picture of what needs to be done and we find solutions to road blocks I face.

Summarizing some points about the things i got to learn from the meetups:

  1. First of all seeing such a big spec document, i got worried to reach upto my goals. But annevk suggested to just reach on those bugs first i could work easily on and then gradually learning about it, i’ll be more confident solving them.
  2. Hence i followed his advice and here now i have solved 3 bugs 🙂
  3. First and second week was mostly spent in gradually pacing up for the project, but now everything is sorted according to the difficulty and understanding levels. And i will be following my above To-Do list of issues for this week.

Thanks for reading through my two week journey, i’ll be updating my further work and achievements here. Stay Tuned!
