Dear gazebo community,
my name is Jens and I am a second year Robotics master student at the Technical University of Munich in Germany. I am interested in contributing to Gazebo through the GSoC program 2019 and specifically in the topics proposed as „Migrating Gazebo plugins to ROS2“ and „Gazebo visual plugin for RobotX competition“ which will primarily be in C++.
My main programming language is python but I am highly motivated to improve my C++ skills. I did a one larger project in C++ where we used ROS and different sensors to control an industrial robot. In python, I contributed to the networkx graph package and have >2 years of experience. Therefore, I would like to get some feedback if I, considering my background, should still aim to write a proposal for these C++ projects or better change to a python based project like the „Gazebo Developers Tool“. Maybe @chapulina or @caguero can give me some feedback?
