Hi, I have sent a pull request for this issue. As a next step, could you suggest any new issue? or anything I have to do to familiarize with Language and run time for parameter servers project.
And regarding writing the project proposal I have few questions. * In the epic there are few sub tasks, is it enough to focus on a single task through out the summer? Would it have enough work load or should I go for multiple tasks? * What is the linkage between sub tasks? Do tasks like, Distributed Spark Back-end or Local multi threaded back ends; need previous tasks completed before starting work? I am glad if you could suggests some issues related to Distributed spark back-end or multi threaded backend tasks. Thanks.
