About Me

I'm from India, and enjoy programming for the web. 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 am happy to have started contributing this year.

I'm a hobby designer too, 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.


Developing skills : Front end web techniques (HTML/CSS/basic jQuery); Object Oriented Programming in Python and C++, Server Side programming with Ruby on Rails

Major Open Source Contributions

I'm working on GlitterGallery, a collaboration tool for Open Source designers. Emily Dirsh from the Fedora design team is my awesome mentor. Google funds my coffee through the awesome Google Summer of Code program.


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