I joined the list a few days back and was confused as to how to start when I saw Patricks email. So here goes.
My name’s Arun Mallikarjunan. I have been using Linux for sometime now and even though I haven’t contributed much towards development efforts I have been promulgating it all I can. I even convinced my roommates to switch.
I would like to contribute to the Linux community anyway possible. I felt the best way to start would be by learning it and understanding the concept better and what’s better than writing the documentation to learn it.
I would be glad if somebody can act as a mentor and guide me through the open source process as I am not too familiar with it, and point me in a direction where I can start leveraging my skills which by the way are J2EE, C and C++. I am working as a project lead for NGB in Washington DC.
Looking forward to be a part of the team.
