Google Summer of Code 2019

I have been interested in Open Source Software and Open Educational Resources for quite a while now. As a student research assitant at the University of Duisburg Essen, I develop e-learning application for university students. This motivated me to apply for GSOC 2019 for Wikimedia Foundation. After solving a microtask and interacting with a few Wikimedia mentors and admins, I applied for the Cargo project :(https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T218353) , and luckily got accepted! I will be contributing to the Cargo project under the auspices of Cargo developer Yaron Koren, who along with Nikhil Nk are my project mentors. It is indeed a dream come true for me. I hope to learn a lot from them and this project!

I have sufficient expertise in PHP, MySQL and Javascript, and I am sure by the end of three months, I will have garnered more expertise in the art of programming.
