I'm Praveen Velliengiri, studying Masters in Data Science at PSG College of Technology, India. I would to contribute to Swift project during this year's google summer of code. As a first step I gone through some of the swift design docs. The project seems to be very exciting. I'm especially interested in contributing to the swift compiler and optimizer , but i didn't find any compiler related projects in ideas list. Do you have any projects in mind that can be taken up by a student and can be completed over 3 months. It will helpful for me to write a proposal and come up with a simple prototype at earliest.
I have an intermediate knowledge in c++, concurrency and distributed systems. I have also participated in GSoC previously, where I got to work on a C++ HPC Runtime System - HPX. I'm also currently learning LLVM Middle end and started writing wrote some toy transformation and analysis passes to understand it. But I do have a very limited knowledge in swift.
I have also send this to swift for tensorflow team, but later I realised that this forum is more appropriate than tensorflow.
I highly appreciate your thoughts on this :)
