I am Shayon Mukherjee. I am an openSUSE member and have been contributing to openSUSE on
and off mostly. I started with openSUSE when I was 16 and have been a FOSS and an opeSUSE
boy for a long time now. Whether its school, college or a bar I try to spread the word as
much as I can. And if I can, I try to contribute some code to openSUSE as well. My recent
contributions to openSUSE has been towards the openSUSE summit and conference websites
(although they are much better now from what i started :). Feel free to look up the
openSUSE github repos.
Moving on to GSoC 2013. I am really interested in contributing and hacking on the
openSUSE's GSOC 2013 Idea - Discussion System for the Open Build Service. I share the
same belief as my mentors, that having a commenting or a feedback system implemented to
the roots of OBS will very much help with people working with OBS.
Now a little about me-
Age - 20
School - California State University
Majors - B.S Computer Science
Year - Junior (3rd year)
Languages and Frameworks I work with but are not limited to - Ruby, Ruby on Rails, MySQL,
PostgreSQL ,SQLite, Jquery, JS, Git, HTLM5 and CSS3. Also, I hold the ability and passion
to learn new things.
Since one of the major requirements of the GSoC idea is Ruby on Rails, thats what I will
talk about now. I have been coding for a long time and have moved to Ruby and Ruby on
rails recently. I have created custom content management systems from scratch with Rails,
have had experience developing real time apps with rails, plus I have helped couple of
startups built their MVP with rails as well. One of my recent projects on rails is
. Feel free to check it out, it helps user monitor hashtags
from twitter and Instagram under one hood. On a side note, I have had experience working
with MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite along side the apps I mentioned as well.
As for my work experience goes, I have worked as a student technology assistant at the
Learning Technology Center of University of Wisconsin Green Bay (October 2010 - December
2012). I have also interned as a Web Application Developer at the Richard Mauthe Centre,
That is all for my introduction if the mentors or anyone else have any questions or
queries please feel free to get in touch with me.
P.S This is just an introduction. Proposal, comes a little later ;).
