About Me

  • I am a third year Undergraduate computer science engineering student at GITAM University, Vizag, India.
  • I program in Python and C/C++ and very less of Java. I like building web apps with Flask and writing tests. Apart from this, I am also comfortable with Javascript, CSS and HTML.
  • Testing is something I've learnt to love while contributing to Firefox-ui-tests, while I discovered Flask while writing tests and database code for centinel-server.

Questions & Answers

Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project? I find fedora to be a good community with really helpful people. I want to be a part of this and contribute to the Fedora Project.

Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora project or any other open source project as a contributor? I contribute to the Mozilla automation team:

I wrote some code for centinel-server:

This was the project that really got me into contributions.


I also opensource my own code:

Did you participate with the past GSoC programs, if so which years, which organizations? No I did not.

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

Yes! I would am interested in working with the fedora-infra team.

Why should we choose you over other applicants?

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.

Will you have any other time commitments, such as school work, another job, planned vacation, etc., during the duration of the program? My summer vacation starts from May and will go on till June end. I have 2 days of planned travel in the 3rd week of June. Apart from that I am willing to put 35-40 hours a week towards completing and deploying Shumgrepper.
