I have experience of writing Python and developing using Flask. I have used FLask to write apps for myself as well as contributed to exiting flask projects. I have written tests for Flask apps and also worked with databases using sqlalchemy. Apart from python I am also well versed in front end of HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Deployment of the shumgrepper is a major task of this project and I am confident I can do it as I have deployed flask apps with both apache & nginx before. I am a quick learner and I am sure I will learn how to write ansible configurations before the time for coding starts and finish the deployment successfully.
My objective is to learn more while being a contributor
