Hello everyone, I live in Punjab(India), a B.tech student in computer engineering believes in open source and knowledge sharing. Besides I believe in original ideas and original research. I like to contribute to humanity some way, so I decided to get involved in free and open software. I like to share my knowledge as this creates a 'knowledge society' which helps to increase your own wealth of knowledge so I always teach my friends anything that I know and give them directions when needed. I like to contribute to environment so I have decided to plant atleast one tree per year and encourage others also to do so. || {{https://launchpad.net/@@/person}} Name || Gursimran singh Mohar ||

== Why using Ubuntu? ==
I installed Ubuntu about two months ago and since that day I just love it .. To be honest I still use windows because I had been using it for about 5 years now but now I have realised the big openness and freedom that linux gives and since the day I installed, I've really enjoyed this freedom a lot ...

Almost all development work(in computers) that I think is upto my potential. I'm most interested in hardware related programming, IP programming (networks) and security.

I wanted to get fully used to Linux by development and write my own drivers and software for my pc.

Areas of Interests

Almost all development work(in computers) that I think is upto my potential. I'm most interested in hardware related programming, IP programming (networks) and security.

I have quite a good knowledge of C and c++ and is coding for AVR and motorola related microcontrollers. I can code well in .NET framework which is of no use here though Sad :( .. I'm working forward to learn atleast one high level cross-platform language like python with a lot of API available, so I can have a substitute of .net here. I have also tried my hand in symbian and have successfully created some symbian S60 applications.

Projects I am interested and working on

Other than Ubuntu I would like to contribute to linux and security area.

Future Plans

  • Ubuntu Bug Control Team Membership - Done (a particular thanks to Sense for that Smile :) )

  • Ubuntu Membership(Application)

  • Ubuntu Contributing Developer

My life goal is to become a good personality and contribute to society in the field of technology ...
