We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
My name is Pedro, I'm a Brazilian student and I've just learned about GSOC this year! I'm on my last year of college and I've done a lot of projects myself, using a lot of different tools, but never contributed to an open source one. So doing this would be a new experience for me.
I was reading about Processing and I loved the idea behind the project and the feeling that I got from reading the description . And when I saw the "guy from the coding train" promoting the software I knew I had to take a better look (his coding challenge videos where what got me more interested in html/js).
Building an IDE sounds like a new and challenging thing for me (which is always a good thing).
I have some experience using Electron to build Desktop applications (only college projects and using node on the back-end tought), but I made a quick search and modifying for java shouldn't (hopefully) be a big problem.
For my java experience I've mainly worked with some back-end stuff with spring / hibernate.
I don't know if I got the idea for this project 100% right, or even how should I introduce myself, but I would love to hear from you guys if I could be of some help on this project.
Thank you very much.
