P2P Zero-Knowledge-Proof based Opensource Social Network - HexHoot

I find that the domain name that I purchased on an impulse, hexhoot.com, would be the ideal name for the p2p social network; both of which I described in some of my previous posts. I have been working on it during my pasttime for about a month now, and I decided to make it opensource. You can have a look at the project using the following link: https://github.com/zenineasa/hexhoot I have attempted to follow all the best development practices as much as I can. I have written tests, and, enabled continuous integration feature in GitHub to run all the tests, lint and copyright checks for the code changes that is being made. I also have captured all the foreseeable tasks in a Trello dashboard. This helps me keep track of all the bugs that I have detected and all the important tasks that need to be completed. There are quite a lot of tasks left to make this bug-free and feature-rich. I hope I will find enough time and motivation to do the same in the coming days.

Preparing my journey to Switzerland

My master's program in Computational Science at Universit√† della Svizzera italiana is scheduled to start in the third week of September. I have already scheduled my flights and I shall be arriving in Zurich on the 15th. Since my last day at MathWorks is done, the only task that I have left to do is preparing for the journey: packing, getting the papers in order, purchasing the currency, etc.

I have been informed that Switzerland is an expensive country to live in. Since I am planning on living mostly on what I have saved in the past couple of years, I have been looking into estimating the approximate living expenses that I would encounter.

For starters, I have been trying to find the sweet spot between good nutrition, less expensive and easy to cook food. I was informed that there is a Lidl supermarket less than a kilometer from the university and it offers grocery products for a cheap price. I found Lidl Switzerland's website to have an understanding of the price for different items and I find that it is cheaper for a vegetarian to live in Switzerland than a non-vegetarian. Perhaps I should reconsider my dietary habits. I have also been looking into different recipes on YouTube that I could potentially cook at low effort.

I have started packing, and I am trying to see how much masalas and spices I can fit in. I have heard that these could be either expensive or unavailable in Switzerland. Chicken masala, biriyani masala and coriander powder has been procured in huge quantities along with ginger garlic paste, chilly powder and turmeric powder. I also need to pack my clothes. I hope I would be able to find the right amount of quantities that I need to take for each items.
