I'm delighted to announce that I got the opportunity to join the K2 Guest Observer (GO) Office at NASA Ames as an intern =D!
The prime mission of the K2 GO Office is to be a bridge between the K2 mission operations and the scientific community. One road of this bridge provides technical support to the scientific community by developing open source softwares, e.g., PyKE.
PyKE software is a set of python tasks developed by Martin Still and Tom Barclay for analysis of Kepler time-series data. Long story short, PyKE is no longer functional mainly because of broken dependencies and a few critical bugs :(.
One of my responsibilities is to make PyKE top notch again =)!
This is going to be achived by doing the following:
- Fixing critical bugs
- Writing unit tests
- Making PyKE an installable package
- Updating dependencies
- Providing documentation on Sphinx
- Creating user-friendly command-line tools
Stay tuned to the Github repo I've created to revamp PyKE here.
