I am Rajan Vaish from India.A Computer Science Major currently pursuing my
B.S (4th year) from Jaypee University of Information Technology,Solan,India
.I have been programming in C & C++ for last 3 years and lately started
working on Java.Apart from the same I have also worked on technologies like
.NET(using C#),AJAX some PHP & J2EE.
I have worked on UNIX and basic Shell Programming .Latter I was introduced
to Linux world in College's Networking Lab,where on Fedora using C programs
we were taught to Network(LAN).I have also used Linux for Compiler design
Labs using LEX and YACC tools .
Lately by participating at Google Summer of Code,I got an opportunity to
intern for OLPC ( One Laptop Per Child ) and to develop a Geography teaching
tool for children using Open Source technologies like
OpenLayers,MapServer,GeoRSS and QGIS,where I also have to develop
installer/packages for Windows/Linux (OLPC XO Laptops run on
Fedora)/Macintosh of the tool created.
I have not contributed to the Linux community earlier but with my existing
knowledge and will to learn more and with my coming experiences with OLPC
,Fedora is going to last in my life forever and thats the platform I will be
using for my final year project where I will be implementing a Ph.D thesis
on a Computer Networking project from Stanford University.In the
contributers program I saw that one can contribute in a number of ways,so I
can help the community grow by spreading word about the same in my
University and bring more value to the Fedora group.At times I can
contribute to the Web Development and I have also worked on
Internationalization while working on Google Gadgets (
http://www.googlemodules.com/author/Rajan+Vaish/ ) within 10 days of their
release they have a statistics of more than 150 queries per day.I am
thankful to be part of Fedora Ambassadors Program and ready to contribute in
anyway I can.Thanks !!
