Summer of Code started
Hey. Today Summer of Code started and I feel pretty well at this point.
I had a good chat with my mentor David Shettler (Leader software developer of the OSVDB team). I consider him a complete professional and better mentor because of his support, humility and his advices.
I remember perfectly the first words he told me today: “Oh Ronny. Fun starts today”.
We discuss many things , mainly about the current OSVDB database schema wich is really big. This let me get a better understanding of the project and making an initial design of my work and use cases.
I got subversion access and I am now looking the source code and running this great software project (OSVDB 2.0). This is a real web application written in ruby on rails used to manage vulnerabilities and all the osvdb website. It is just amazing.
I really enjoyed this day and think this will be a great experience for me and other summer of coders. I am going to inform of my work progress in the OSVDB gsoc 2008 wiki.
Good luck to everyone. Enjoy the summer.
