Subject: My application for Season of KDE 2011
To: kde-soc-mentor at kde.org

Hello all :)

I applied for the GSoC-2011 for KIO application but did get selected for it.
I am still looking for project in this summer in KDE.

I have no specific project in my mind. I don't know which projects are
to students for GSoC-2011 so any project appropriate for me according to my
I can work on.

If any project which is not related to KDE or any other project which fits
to my profile
and any mentor wants me to work I can work on it.

I would like to prefer for project in which system programming is involved.
I have no experience in graphics side programming.
Very little experience in scripting and web site development.

I am good at C and C++.

Any system programming related project will be perfect for me :)

My specific interest includes kernel programming( I am beginner in it :) )
To explore more about my interest I did many projects on Linux based
Operating System from my UG only.

Here are some area on which I have worked till date:
- I worked as an embedded engineer for 1.5 years in eInfochips.(*
- During my job I made Linux Ethernet driver for DaVinci based SoC.
- I also worked on network protocols like IGMPv3 as part of protocol
verification project.

I did my UG( Computer Science as Major ) and currently I am doing
my M.Tech ( Software Engineering as Major )
in International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India.

During My 1st and 2nd Semester I did following projects:
- Made Chromium secure live USB by removing hard disk driver
  from it and made appropriate changes to make it bootable via USB.
- I have also coded one Linux kernel module which was keeping track of IPC
  object(i.e. Semaphore) waiting process queue.

Here is the major projects details and some source code that I have done

I am planing to take advanced operation system as my one of the main
subject. So if I am getting
any project related to it, I can talk to my professor and can request him to
consider it
as project elective. So that I can work on it for next 6 month also.

I would like to work for any project that is appropriate according to my
If there are any other projects available then also I am open to work for

I can also do work for any application.

I like to work for open source and want to explore this world.
I am expecting from this project a good learning experience plus a good
between open source organization and my institute.

Let me know what is I need to do further.

Thanks and regards,
Tushar Mehta
