Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project? I want to work with in an open source project and that too with skilled people who have the exact idea of what product they want to build and how are they going to achieve it.Hence fedora was an obvious choice.

Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or another open source project as a contributor? No I don't have any past involvement with the Fedora project

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2012 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with? Yes , i would like to continue supporting it even after my gsoc timeline ends.

Why should we choose you over other applicants? Even though I do not have any experience in working with open source projects i do have a lot of experience in developing applications , so I can coordinate properly and most of the places I have worked are startup's so I know well enough the importance of meeting the timeline of your task.

Proposal Description

Please describe your proposal in detail. Include:

An overview of your proposal: Develop a web base survey system so that contributors can easily create surveys and get results as well. The user will be able to see statistics and other required reports so that they can analyze the data through reports in an efficient manner.

The need you believe it fulfills: Surveys give an idea about the progress of any work and hence increase the quality of a service.The contributors can use the survey for results , analysis and various activities .

Any relevant experience you have: Although I do no have not any knowledge about Lime Survey, until now, but I have worked under the LAMP stack before also , and have developed many applications which serves to provide business solutions be it an organizer tool for the employees or a contact manager tool for the service.I am part of the application building team and work as a application developer working on business applications in PHP,Mysql , Javacsript in WORLD VISION SOFTEK.

How you intend to implement your proposal: First , I will familiarize myself with the development environment at Fedora and understand the basics of Lime Survey as it's given that its knowledge would be an advantage.After that i would focus on developing the actual application , using jqplot to plot graphs using the data so that contributors can analyze the reports , A good UI will also be one of the primary focus of the project.

A rough timeline for your progress:

   10-12 days: To get familiar with the development work and Lime Survey.
   6-7 days: Build a web interface for the users using html ,css , javascript 
   10 days:Develop the actual application to add different functionality where the users can create surveys
   6-7 days:Use jqplot to plot graphs whenever possible to provide the contributors with desired reports
