GSoC ’17 with Sugar Labs – 1

Hello people,

For the next three months, I will be in constant touch with you , sharing my experience as a Google Summer of Code’ 17 participant with Sugar Labs.

I can’t express how happy I was when I got to know I have been selected for GSoC’17 and also in Outreachy’17 as a GSoC participant( I was upgraded to GSoC in Outreachy according to their policy). Ecstasy due to happiness hit me so hard after seeing this :


I got selected for the project “Timbre Widget for Music Blocks”  under the mentor-ship of two highly skilled people , Devin Ulibarri and Walter Bender. Sugar Labs community is very supportive and we all like to work as a team and help others . You can know more about Sugar Labs here.
I have been an active contributor to Music Blocks since December’16 and been in constant touch with the community. Right now, We are into the Community Bonding period . All the GSoC participants meet weekly and Walter Bender makes sure that nobody is encountering an problem regarding anything . Moreover, all the mentors as well as the students working on Music Blocks related projected have decided to meet twice a week to keep everyone updated with the progress.

Updates till now , i.e. 21st May ’17 :

  • Attended Regular weekly meetings on Monday with other GSoC participants.
  • Attended meetings for Music Blocks related projects twice a week.
  • Exploring Tone.js to increase the efficiency of Timbre Widget.
  • Worked on Distortion as well as Tremolo Effect.
  • Currently working on effects such as Chorus and phaser.
  • Made changes to existing “set synth” block to inculcate the functionality of AMSynth , FMSynth , etc.

Target to be achieved until the end of Community Bonding Period :

  • Get ready with Tone.js interface with all the effects as well as the synths.
  • Get a clear idea of the UI for the widget which will commence with the coding period.
  • Keep everyone updated with my progress via mail.
  • I will also be fixing some minor bugs during this period.

Looking forward to an awesome summers with Sugar Labs and my new found Love, Javascript !

Meet you all again in the next post soon !
