I've had meetings with my mentors Patrick and Karthik this week. We've
set up bi-weekly video meetings for syncing. I think it's good to create
a Slack channel where we could help each other for some general problems
thus improving the productivity and also establishing a good
relationship.

I think it's nice to have a virtual introductory meeting with all of the
accepted GSoC contributors and mentors thus we could know each other
more.
