   Hello everyone!

   I am Kowndinya Renduchintala, a second Year Undergrad in Computer
   Science and Engineering Department at Indian Institute of Technology
   Bombay(IIT Bombay).


   In short, this project’s end goal is to add to the dataframe
   implementation of GSoC’19, inspired from R, Python and others. This
   already has features like constructing a column of data frame, the data
   frame itself in a couple of ways and also supports operations like
   select, join etc. My main focus is on adding features that are most
   desired by a data scientist working with REAL WORLD data and I have
   added some such possible features in the draft linked below.

   I have never been into Open Source Software Development before. I would
   like to make this first attempt of mine a success and I hence seek for
   advice from anyone willing to spare time, to improve upon my list of
   deliverables, for establishing the foundation of Boost.uBlas as a new
   data science library.

   TO THE MENTOR(David):
   My progress so far: I have glanced through the GSoC’19 implementation,
   and referred to some pandas docs to make this draft.
   I am actually a bit worried because I was too late at completing my
   Competency test and contacting you, the main reason being a very hectic
   coursework of mine. The only remaining things are – Modifying the for GitHub Actions Usage and some basic error handling in the
   code. I have shared the draft in the Google’s portal which also
   contains a link to my forked repository of ublas, containing my
   solutions to the competency test. I will also be completing the
   remaining things(possibly also improve small parts like updating naïve
   matrix multiplication to Strassen’s) in about 2 days.

   Also, I want to have a little chat with you as I found out that you
   were the mentor for this project in 2019 and you might be having some
   pre-conceived ideas on improving the current implementation, from your
   previous interaction.

   Please let me know what you think…
