Adrenaline | Life rocks

Life is rocking now. Got a favorable response from Drupal about GSoC. Lets see what happens. I guess I made a good proposal.There is also a possibility of getting a paid internship at IIM-Ahmedabad and working on a product which will then be launched. The product is not my idea, but I will join in as a coder. Just the kind of work I like. Also there is QUEST, ACM SVNIT Chapter’s international computing festival. It a huge responsibility and I will try my best to live up to it. We need to make a huge success out of it.

And yes, I am interested in someone. Its not love. But lets see where it goes.

Hectic

The past few days have been hectic. I have been working for Google Summer of Code. Talking to developers and getting feedback. Even if I dont get selected in SoC I shall start working on some project or the other. Now making proposals for submission. Wish me luck

Google Summer of Code 2008 is here

GSOC is here… And this time I have 4 project proposals. Out of them, one is pretty simple and there is nothing remarkable about it. On the other hand, there is one that would completely revolutionize GNU/Linux, ie, if I complete it at all. Another one would fix a long standing need of GNU/Linux users. While the last one is kinda experimental. No one has thought of doing this and even I am not sure how I will go about implementing it. It sounds easy, but my gut feeling says it would be the most complex to implement. However, if it gets done, GNU/Linux will make a giant leap towards being a very very user-friendly OS.

But. And it a BIG but. Will I get selected? I have ZERO prior experience in FOSS projects. Haven’t worked in any. I have written only small programs where emphasis in largely on the algorithm. Can I handle this? Am I trying to eat more than I can chew?Nah, there’s always a first time. But will I be able to convince this to my prospective mentors?

Lets hope for the best
