Glad you are interested in this project!

I would recommend the following documents and code:

* Source code of pg_protobuf
* "Writing Postgres Extensions" tutorial series by Manuel Kniep
* "So you want to make an extension?" talk by Keith Fiske
* Apache Thrift official website
* Also a great explanation of the Thrift format can be found in the
  book "Designing Data-Intensive Applications" by Martin Kleppmann

To my best knowledge currently there are no other students interested in
this particular work.

Best regards,
Aleksander Alekseev
