Hi,
   I was interested in working on the project related to Persistent Data Structures for GSOC 2019, but the project does not mention any expected skills or background. I have coded up persistent data structures in C++ for programming competitions, but the project description makes it appear that the student needs experience with Functional Programming.
I would be grateful if someone could clarify the expected prerequisite skills.

Thanks,
Athreya

FP experience would be nice to have, but experience with doing things with PDS in C++ is very good too. The requirements are not hard requirements, you're expected to learn after all.
