Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?
I am amazed by all the open source work done by Fedora community. I want to be part of this community by contibuting code through GSoC program and further plans to continue doing that.
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?
I recently started contributing to Mozilla:-
- Add a "Watch" button on the new inspection popup.
- Large Textbox should have maxlength and wrap =>1 in buglists.
- show_bug.cgi should use field-label.html.tmpl for field headers (Not reviewed yet).
I also did some benchmarking of this bug to test whether the JS performance issue in current code is still there or not.
I regularly use open source libraries, frameworks for my projects. My other open source contributions can be found on my GitHub profile. I built a VIM plugin to compile/run code from the comfort of vim editor.
Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations?
Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2014 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?
Yes, Waartaa and Fedora Infra
