My name is Batakrishna Sahu and I am from India. I'm very grateful to be one of the 2 selected students who will work with Nuitka during Google Summer of Code 2019. My project is on "Optimizing Python 2 and Python 3 built-ins for Nuitka" mentored by Vaibhav Tulsyan, Kamran Ghanaat, Kay Hayen.
So far, there are a total of 69 built-ins in Python 3 and 76 built-in in Python 2 out of which 27 built-ins are yet to be optimized in Nuitka. My aim is to optimize those missing built-ins in Nuitka. This will make Nuitka a lot faster while working with built-ins.
I'm really excited to gain new experience while working on this project this summer.
