I'm Arthur, a third-year undergraduate Computer Science student from University of São Paulo, in Brazil. I'm reaching out to say that I'm very excited about the possibility of contributing to Swift in GSoC and because I have a few questions regarding the skills required for the projects I'm considering applying for.
The two projects that caught my attention the most are the one that seeks to provide overlays for the C++ STL types (to be mentored possibly by @egor.zhdan and @ Alex_L) and the one that aims to improve the CLI user experience (to be mentored possibly by @NeoNacho, @ abertelrud, and @ Tom Doron (I believe Tom's nickname is tomerd, but I'm not sure)). However, I have no experience with Swift, which is a requirement for both projects. Should reading the Swift Tour and its guide be enough to participate in either one of these projects?
Ps: I'sorry I only tagged one mentor from each project, but can only tag two people in a question, as I have just recently joined the forum
