GSoC'20: Support SDP constraints and make DiffOpt.jl robust

Hi all! This blog is one of a series marking my progress in Differentiable Optimization Problems.
You may enjoy reading my first blog.

The project - progress

Milestones completed:
1. Adding appveyor build to CI - PR #29
2. Testing the whole contconic.jl test suite and supporting the latest Julia version on CI - PR #28
3. Extracting matrices dynamically and supporting SDP constraints - PR #30

Bonus: Had JuMP Developer call on July 24th - find the related notebook here

What's next?

For the next two weeks, we'll focus on
1. Adding matrix builder code to MatrixOptInterface.jl and using it as a dependency in DiffOpt.jl
2. Adding projections on cones and their derivatives to MathOptSetDistances.jl and and using it as a dependency in DiffOpt.jl
