Questions to answer
Why do you want to work with the Fedora Project for GSoC ?
I chose Fedora as first OS that I installed into my laptop (off-course after removing windows 8) because I liked the Fedora Symbol very much (Fedora Design team has done a great job for doing the same). After when I came to know that the F means Infinite Freedom plus voice I always thought of contributing to the project.
- Improve my coding skills. (I am currently doing my computer science graduate so ability to build software is a skill must for me.)
- To be a part of the bigger community and Improve my communication skills (Ability to work with people from all over world and in different time zones is a big plus point for me)
- Opportunities with Red Hat (Who doesn't want to get paid for doing what they love to do!)
- Stipend by Google (Good enough to spend my summer coding without the need of taking money from my parents or working)
Do you have any past involvement with the Fedora Project or another open-source project as a contributor?
- I have recently joined the CommOps Team and working on couple of tickets right now
- I have joined the Security Team as a Apprentice
- I have done little bit of Ruby packaging in Debian
- I have fixed few coding style bugs in the Kernel using CheckPatch
Have you participated in GSoC in the past? If so, what year(s) and which organization(s)?
- No, this is the first time that I am applying for GSOC and I am very much exited about the same
Do you plan to continue contributing to the Fedora Project after GSoC? If yes, what sub-project(s) are you interested with?
- Yes I am very much interested in contributing to the Fedora Project after completing my GSoC. I am very much interested in Fedora Security team and I am already working with CommOps and am interested in Ambassadors and Campus Ambassadors.
