About Me

I'm from India, and love advanced realizations of Turing machines. I'm currently pursuing my Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Amrita University, India.

Though I like exploring varied technology domains once in a while, my major areas of interest revolve around the web. I am an avid FOSS enthusiast, and after volunteering for a year in University at various FOSS events, I now intend to contribute.

I'm a hobby designer, and love Fedora's artwork and designs. I'm excited to begin my Open Source adventures with Fedora, and hope to learn new stuff and interesting people ;)

When I'm not playing with design/code, I love to eat, sleep, and travel.


Skills (strong) : Front end web techniques (HTML/CSS/basic jQuery); Object Oriented Programming in Python and C++

Skills (developing) : Server Side programming with Ruby on Rails

Major Open Source Contributions

I'm one of the 10 Google Summer of Code students representing Fedora this year. I'm working on GlitterGallery, a collaboration tool for Open Source designers. Emily Dirsh from the Fedora design team is my awesome mentor.

Glitter Gallery

Over this summer, I'll work on Glitter Gallery. I'm maintaining updates about it on my blog.
