I aspire to be a stable contributor in 'Swathanthra Malayalam Computing' and I am very delighted to be a part of it. I have proposed a project named NETRA:(uNifiEd Tool-cum-bRaille Application for Indic scripts). Any feedback on the same is highly appreciated.

About Me

I am a final year student pursuing bachelors of Computer Science & Engineering from MSIT, GGS Indraprastha University - New Delhi (India). I am a FOSS enthusiast, contributing to OSS since 2+ years from now and have been using GNU/linux since high school. In past I’ve been associated with OSS projects, which avails free & open source educational tools to students. Apart from regular college curriculam , I spend a considerable amount of time doing things outside of work as well. My biggest contribution towards opensource is 'codeasy' which is an IDE(Integrated Development Environment) for Java programming developed by me. Codeasy is licensed under GNU general public licence(version 3). During spare time, I fix minor bugs in some of the KDE opensource projects.
I have working knowledge of c,c++,java & python. I have worked on coding projects like WRN, project444, chaos theory in cryptosystems, GAs in cryptanalysis, bulls & bears, TBC project, FOSSEE-IIT Bombay and visual simulation on ACO- IIT Delhi. I am a yahoo summer school 2013 participant and well versed with community interactions and dynamics of OSS projects. I use irc, mailing lists, version control systems, such as git(with working knowledge of hg,svn) & host all my projects at github hence I can start early with coding.
Rest apart I am a member of ILUG-D(Indian Linux User Group-Delhi). Contributed in organizing lug sessions at our college campus as a part of SIGs(student interest groups) & delivered a couple of talks. I am also the founder of MSIT-Java User Group (a special interest group under IEEE-MSIT). I take Summer of Code as an opportunity to get engaged with SMC as a contributor and continue this association even after GSoC. I am very much willing to be a stable member of community.
