I haven’t had a nerve wracking wait for something in a long time. The results have been out and I am glad and excited to say that my project Casacore Testing has been selected under GSoC-2017.
Coming to the project, Casacore is a sub-organization under OpenAstronomy . python-casacore is a set of Python bindings for casacore, which is a suite of c++ libraries for radio astronomy data processing. This project aims to improve python-casacore infrastructure, making the codebase cleaner, modern, maintainable and adding more unit tests. Here is the link to my proposal
I plan to start work early as possible so that I can get sufficient time to complete Part 1 of the project. Looking forward to working with casacore !!!
