Explaining importance of good coding practices

Submitted by rakesh on Thu, 12/27/2018 - 15:54

I have spent an almost equal span of time at PharmEasy as much as I did at OYO rooms. @PharmEasy, we have a lot of creative people around who knows what matters at what stage of time and learning from them has been a blessing. After I joined PharmEasy, Many things have changed so far including my attitude towards problem-solving, understanding business better.

PHP -> RoR -> PHP | GSoC -> OYO -> PharmEasy

Feels like yesterday only when I joined OYO right after my graduation from College and finishing GSoC programme. I was working at OYO for 1.2 years and it was full of challenging work every single day there. I don't remember a time where I could let my shoulders get down to relax or step down on my toes. Being part of ever busy Finance team gave me a clear picture of how Reconciliation works and how actually the professional life is different than a college life. You're not allowed even a single mistake in a single sale of the organisation. Perfection is always a must.

Life at OYO

It's been 3 months now for me as OYO developer. Though it shouldn't be strange to me as I read almost everything already on Quora what I am witnessing here right now but still it amazes me every now and then. People around me are really talented, learning enthusiast and hard working. Won't be wrong if i say "Experts in their fields".

GSoC Final Submission

GSoC is almost over and I’m now submitting the project which I started with my awesome mentors Dick Olsson, Andrei Jechiu and Tim Millwood nearly 4 months ago. I knew it’d be a really great journey but I had no idea it’d be this awesome. Everything related to GSoC was perfect. The organisation, my mentors, the project itself was enough challenging as well as interesting at the same time.

Woah!! We're in last week of Google Summer of Code. Hard to believe that the journey we started from 22nd April is about to come to an end. Soon I’ll be publishing a post summarizing all my experience, development and other great achievements during this time. It was a really awesome journey but I’m really happy that the bond we share with the community and open source is not tied to GSoC only. The thought that I would be able to contribute after GSoC as well gives me  a really good motivation.

It's been 3 months now and we're finally approaching the last steps of our project - "Solving Merge conflict in Drupal 8" with Multiversion module. So far, we have launched two Open source Libraries, Implemented Simple LCA resolver and a simple merge resolver in the Conflict  module to find lowest common ancestor and merge the updates respectively. Now all development phase is almost done and the integration part starts where we have to integrate the Libraries we created in the first phase of Google Summer of Code16.
