Namaste, I am Asmit Kumar Sirohi. A pre-final year undergraduate at Quantum University, Roorkee, India, pursuing Computer Science and Engineering as my major. I am a Web Developer who enjoys developing apps that matter. I’m a core member of the technical club at my institute and maintain the club’s website as well as the institute’s resource management system.
I have been very passionate about open-source since my freshman year and contributed to many open source projects. This interest in open-source brought me to the GSoC. I explored many great open-source organizations and their projects and then I found The Palisadoes Foundation there. The Palisadoes Foundation is one of the most helpful and active organizations I encountered. The procedure of design docs and PR reviews gives insights into professional work. After talking to mentors, I was happy to choose The Palisadoes Foundation for my GSoC journey.
