About Me

My name is Ishan Sharma and I am an undergraduate student of BITS Pilani, Pilani Campus.

My relationship with OSM / World of Open Source

I am only a recent entrant to the world of Open source. My initial interaction with the open source has been through OSM2World / Sugar Labs. I have spent the past few weeks going through codes of various OSM2World modules trying to develop prototypes for new ideas and contributing code in the community. The world of open source has always fascinated me. It has given so much to the society, operating systems, browsers, and now even learning tools for children. I feel that open source is the biggest collective philanthropic effort of mankind and I would love to be a part of this effort.
