About me

  • Hi,I am a 4th year Computer Science U.G student studying in U.V Patel College Of Engineering, Mehsana, Gujarat.
  • I have some coding experience with Java, C and I am fairly comfortable with Python.As far as my web development experience is considered i have worked with HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP!
  • I am new to the world of open-source programming and have been learning the trades!Inquisitiveness is what drives me.
  • 27th May, after 3 months of hard work,I finally managed to get selected for GSOC and work for WMF this summer. What do I expect? Well there is so much I could write under this question. Every bug that I fixed, every page that I read has taught me something new, so this summer I will do whatever it takes to complete my project. Its celebration time right now and LET THE CODING PERIOD BEGIN!

GSOC Proposal edit

Wiktionary a multilingual free dictionary does not have an audio pronunciation file for many words. The current procedure to upload an audio pronunciation for a particular word is very time consuming and tedious. This summer I plan on implementing a user friendly interface that helps people to record pronunciations. It is going to be very helpful to the people using Wiktionary and the Wiktionary community would benefit a lot. GSoC Project Page - Pronunciation Recording Extension
