Hello everyone, I'm Soumya (@skeptronus, He/Him), presently living in Kolkata, India
and I'm currently pursuing a Masters degree in Chemistry. Among other things I have a
keen interest in programming and I'm a strong believer of the Free- and Open-Source
Philosophy, and looking to serve the community.
I know Python, some C and Bash scripting and I have a moderate-level understanding of the
(GNU/)Linux OS. I consider myself a novice programmer though. I'm also interested in
networks, security and privacy-centric designs and tools for Open Science.
Its been over a year now since I have settled on Fedora as the distro of my choice after
some heavy distro-hopping, and I'm very satisfied with the experience.
I have not actively contributed to any major FOSS projects yet (except occasionally
submitting bug reports and translations) and I have a fairly limited
knowledge of the software development process. Thus I'd like to start with something
simple, and I think packaging would be an easy task to learn.
Ankur Sinha has already opened a "Welcome to Fedora" ticket for me and I've
gone through the links mentioned there, and I think I'm ready to start.
I'm looking forward to have an exciting learning experience with the community and
I'm glad to get this opportunity to contribute to this awesome project.
