I've been selected as a part of MLH Fellowship program where I will be working on Julia projects as an open-source contributor. During this program, I will be primarily contributing to Flux.jl and Documenter.jl solving some of the most important issues. I had also applied for a need-based stipend and I will be getting a decent compensation for my contributions which will help our family for the recent financial situation.
I would like to thank MLH for giving me this opportunity to work with some of the smartest people at Julia community. I will make sure that my contributions make way to improving the experience with the mentioned packages.
One of the nicest things about this program is that you have potential to learn a lot from your contributions to the projects you choose to work with. As I'm new to Flux.jl, I will be learning a lot from the community and will help me a lot in understanding the math behind the machine learning algorithms.
Although it has been some time since the start of the program, I'm excited getting some of my very first contributions merged upstream. I'll definitely write more posts as I continue with my journey.
