My name is Ronak Jain, studying final year Computer Science & Engineering
from Visvesvaraya technological university, India. This summer I would like
to GSoC with OpenStreetMap, as I am really keen on working with an
interesting and challenging project which matches my skills and provides a
room for learning.

About my experience:
I have contributed to plenty of open source projects in the past which
include Google/Flatbuffers, Grpc, and other smaller projects. I am the
author of "Grpc-go interface generator with flatbuffers" which is one of my
greatest contribution which I am proud of. I have extensively worked with
C, C++ and Go, comfortable with java, ruby, python, and javascript. I have
worked on projects such as Bittorrent client, Online Judge etc. which are
available in my profile on GitHub. I have also published apps on Google
play store.

Full cgimap write support
Full cgimap read-only support
I have chosen these as I have good experience with the languages being used
in the project also I have worked with Postgres earlier. I will choose the
idea after speaking with the mentor and deciding what could be additionally
added to the project.

I would like to know,
how can I get started with the project?
are there any bite-sized project or bugs that could be fixed?
what are the steps I could take to increase my acceptance rate?

I have created an account with OSM and will contribute to the map based on
my local area, also I have read the GSoC students guide. I would like to
know if mentors have any suggestions regarding the project and best

Thank you,
Ronak Jain
