Mar 2023 - Present
I'm currently doing my Linux Foundation Mentorship (LFX'23) under CNCF - GoogleCloudPlatform, in which I'm creating Lit Components for open sourcing the frontend of Testgird. The project is based on Lit Framework, GO, TypeScript and involves writing frontend tests.
Oct 2022 - Dec 2022
Reviewed cryptographic algorithms which were implemented in RUST. Got an exposure on lattice cryptography and RUST.
Jul 2022 - Sep 2022
Since I was not a beginner to open source and didn’t fall into the beginner to open-source guidelines of GSoC, I was offered an internship instead of an official GSoC project under Element.io (a subsidiary of Matrix.org), where I did the implementation of creating knockable rooms and wrote cypress tests for the same. Knocking is the feature that enables users to send a request to join any room or space. The language used was TypeScript and the whole project was based on MERN.
May 2022 - Aug 2022
I did my Summer of Bitcoin’22 under Specter Desktop, where I implemented JWT Authentication to REST API for improving the security of the API and making the API more scalable. I also wrote the pytests for the same. The project was implemented in Flask, with which I had no prior experience but I knew Django so I caught up quickly with Flask and finished the project on time.
