> 2. *Game development* : I was always interested in game development since
> I was a kid. I have developed a couple of small games -
> (A) Bloxorz : (https://gitlab.com/vijeth-aradhya/bloxorz-game) : Inspired
> by http://www.miniclip.com/games/bloxorz/en/, I built this game using
> OpenGL as part of my Graphics course in my university.
> (B) Blocks here and there : (https://gitlab.com/vijeth-ara
> dhya/opengl-sample-bricks-game) : This is a 2 D game developed using
> openGL again.
> (C) TicTacToe engine : (https://github.com/vijeth-aradhya/tictactoe-engine)
> : Using basic minimax game theory algorithm, I built it using raw JS, html
> and css.
> (D) Tetris : (https://github.com/vijeth-aradhya/tetris-game) : Using
> python curses library, I built the good, old tetris game.
> (E) Ultimate tictactoe bot : This was part of my AI course in the
> university where I built an ultimate tictactoe
> <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate_tic-tac-toe> bot using alpha-beta
> minimax algorithm.
> 3. *Application Development/Web Frameworks* : I am familiar with django,
> web2py and ionic framework and I have built many small projects using the
> same.
> There is a lot more which I have not mentioned about me, but I feel it's
> best if I join the community and help out, and then only I would be clearer
> about myself! Here <https://github.com/vijeth-aradhya/> is my github
> profile.
> Whether or not I make a successful proposal, I want to be a part of this
> community and learn as much as possible. It would be great if you could get
> me started. I could probably start by fixing bugs or contribute a small
> project to the community. Currently, I have sent a mail requesting a wiki
> account because I want to search for bugs and fix a few of them, and then I
> would like to check out the projects listed and then narrow down to one of
> them, and start working on it.
> Also, if there is anything more I need to know about GSoC in general with
> respect to the community (because I just joined the IRC and I'm really new
> to Sugarlabs), please let me know. I believe that this is good way to kick
> start my contribution to Sugarlabs!
> Looking forward to your response,
