I am currently an Information System major at the National Univeristy of Singapore. Like everyone here, I love programming and designing.
I have used Joomla for more than three years for my websites and I love it ,as well as appreciating the efforts of a lot of Joomla contributors to make Joomla be one of the best CMSs. The idea of contributing for Joomla source code has been in my mind for a long time. Therefore, when I applied for GSOC, I picked one Joomla project only and worked on it till now.
My project is to rebuild one of the most important components of Joomla: the media manager, which is currently outdated. The new one is going to have more usability and functionality with a lot of improvements. Besides, it has the reusability by giving developers flexibility in media handling. The new media manager is expected to release in Joomla 3.2 and hopefully improve user satisfaction.
This is a great chance for me to gain experience in developing web applications, and co-operating with much better developers is going to give me both technical skills and teamwork skills.
