- Airavata's Sharing Service - We now have a simple group management portal which achieves user group creating and management. We still need to integrate file uploading and project sharing features so that the users can also share their experiments and workflows with the group members.
- Registry Database Versioning - With the Registry changing every day and a lot of migration that needs to be done with respect to the legacy data, we need a method to version the database changes so that we can maintain the revisions and perform rollbacks efficiently. I have started work on this and will continue with this until May 2018 as an Independent Study under Marlon Pierce and Suresh Marru at IUB.
When I started with GSoC late April, I was not aware of the ways of open source development. The Science Gateway Architectures courses (taught by Marlon Pierce and Suresh Marru) I took in my first year at IUB introduced me to good practices in distributed systems and Apache Airavata. Writing to the Airavata dev mailing list has helped me in solving most of my problems. I wish to contribute more to Airavata in the coming days and work on the issues and take part int code reviews.
