The Verdict

Oh well well….

I passed !!!




Judgement Week


This is it.

The Mid Evaluation week.

I decided to STOP doing anything until I fix SunPy’s copybutton.  But that turned into a nightmare as I tried everything, but couldn’t get it to work….

Finally me and Cadair found out what we were lacking.



I don’t have any hopes whatsoever of getting this issue solved.


Okay, what else….

Ohhhh Brexit, and, well Brexit2 from the Euros…

Second Half of the Pre Mid Evaluations Coding Period



I KNOW…………….

But I can’t think of a heading  😦

Possible Explanation :


Well, I got kicked out…..

From a SunPy dev meeting ( sorry to disappoint )

I was causing too much noise. Well, technically it was my laptop fan. But Cadair covered for me. Again.

So, getting to my work on a serious note ( don’t judge a blog by its pictures ),  work on Adding Fido entries to the Database continued from the previous fortnight.

Now there is a add_from_fido_search_result() function which enables users to add entries returned from any Fido search result to the database. Currently only JSOC results cannot be added to the database.

Aaaaand as usual, finding a small query for the test functions was frustrating. So I didn’t find one. Used a big one 😀

No, seriously it IS difficult to find a query with a small number of results.

Have a look at it here : Add Fido search results to the database

So now I head into the Mid Evaluations Period, officially behind schedule. Well, it’s complicated.

Now I await my fate………………


First Half of the Pre Mid Evaluations Coding Period


I know I know I should have come up with a better heading. Anyways, let’s begin.

So, here it is. Oooooh, the serious part. The coding period. Again, I dunno what to do.

Really 😦

Unidown had issues ( lots to be fair ) which was not allowing ( honestly, I couldn’t find a better word ) me to work on the first part of my project.


Meanwhile SunPy had started work on their new SunPy Example Gallery which basically contains examples for people to see what SunPy’s different modules can do.

So me and Cadair had a meet and it was decided that I should make examples for the Database Module of SunPy. This had to be short but yet should give a good idea to the people on what the Database Module is capable of. If used on a regular basis, it will allow users to :

  • manage files easily
  • use common storage so that a group of people can share the same data
  • save time and bandwidth as there is no need to download the same data twice

It did take some time to prepare and organize what’ll go where as I had to travel during this time, but I did complete it ( after Sphinx nightmares ). 😀

You can take a look at it here : Quick Examples for the database package

Aaaand again a meeting with Cadair. This time unidown was in a much (much) better state and we decided that I should start implementing the First Part of my proposal and we’ll tackle any issues as they come. And so work on adding Fido search results to the database began….


This work continues into the Second Half of the Pre Mid Evaluation Coding Period.

I know I know, that heading again. Jeez
