Hi everyone, I'm Debashish Kundu, an undergrad student. I've been immersed in Android Development and Kotlin for over two years. My journey has included contributions to small open-source projects, I have not yet had the chance for larger, real-world projects. I chose the Kotlin Foundation for GSoC due to my keen interest in Kotlin. After going through several project ideas, I'm interested in the project "Incremental compilation for the Kotlin-to-WebAssembly compiler". I'm ready to make a significant contribution. @Artem Kobzar, could you please guide me on deepening my knowledge of this topic and suggest the best approach? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Debashish, nice to meet you. Thank you for being so interested. To start to play around (and understand if you like it), you can try to run Wasm tests on your machine to set up the environment. The start point is the class called
K1WasmCodegenBoxTestGenerated
, which runs different tests defined inside the
compiler/testData/codegen/box
directory. As a first step, try to run any test from the mentioned class and try to change the sources of the test to explore its work. Feel free to ask any question in DM, I will be glad to answer 🫡

Thanks, Artem! I'll start with the tests and reach out if I have any questions 🙏
