This is awesome about GSoC: The satisfaction of seeing your contribution integrated in real-world applications with so many people using it. The opprtunity to learn so many new things, and enjoying each and every bit of open-source software development.

This is what I learned during GSoC: CMake, Git Version Controlling, IRC Protocols

This is awesome about GSoC: We get to learn things and enjoy our work at the same time. It feels awesome to contribute and see our work integrated, inspires us to do more quality work.

This is what I learned during GSoC: To properly plan and discuss the features. A lot to be learned in coding period yet.

Mohamed Anwer

Project Name: [digiKam] Rewrite database KIO-slaves as pure Qt5 with multithreading

A Brief Description: Originally, KIO-Slaves was implemented to run database queries in a separate process to prevent problems with SQlite. Since SQlite support queries from separate threads, KIO-slaves can be dropped, and a new API can be implemented using pure Qt threads API. This will improve digiKam portability, and permit adjusting CPU cores assigned to database processes efficiently.


  • Dropping dependency on KIO-Slaves:
    In progress
  • Patching the database files:
    In progress
  • Creating GUI dedicated to controlling multithreading:
    In progress
  • Writing test code:
    In progress
  • Documentation:
    In progress
  • Benchmarking:
    In progress
