Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project?

I have been wanting to contribute to Fedora for a long time. The cutting edge releases that fedora comes up with makes me want to become a part of it and help Fedora in their endeavor of providing a wonderful experience to users. I look forward to working with Fedora on my first GSoC project.

Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor?

I am an active contributor for Mozilla and Openstack. For Openstack, I have contributed to Rally, benchmarking tool for openstack (commits). For Mozilla, a majority of my contribution comes through Fennec bugs (Fennec is the codename for Mozilla's android browser). I have also been involved with Mozilla Research Projects Rust (the new systems language) and Servo (browser engine). I have also made various small contributions to Mozilla build system mach. You can find my contributions for Rust, Servo, Rally and maybe some other random projects here.

Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations?

No, I have never participated in the past GSoC programs

Will you continue contributing/ supporting the Fedora project after the GSoC 2015 program, if yes, which team(s), you are interested with?

Definitely! I have been contributing to open source since around three months now, and never has it stopped intriguing me. I'd be interested in the #fedora-releng team and the #fedora-infra team.

Why should we choose you over other applicants?

I have been an active contributor to various open source projects, and hence I have some experience working with large codebases and with version control systems. I proficient in Python, C/C++, Java/Android while I have worked with many other languages. Moreover, I love learning more and more about new languages and technologies.
