I am Reuben Varghese and I am currently doing my undergraduate studies at Vellore Institute of Technology
Why Open-Source and OpenMRS :
I have been contributing to open source since 9th grade.By the 11th grade I had become quite familiar with the android OS and the linux kernel.My contributions have helped many other developers on the XDA developer communtiy.
I basically contributed by modifying various boot images of different operating systems being developed for my phone.I never knew that I was unknowingly into open source but all I know is that I loved it.In the 11th grade lost touch with this community due to some reasons.After that I learned about Github and the different ways I could contribute to reach out to a much larger community.
I have always wanted my contributions to help in the betterment of the people around me. In such a case what better way to help but contribute to a Github organisation with a similar aim!
I am 19 years old and I am from India.I love coding and it is what I do most of the time
I have worked on a few projects and have also taken part in few hackathons as well.I am basically an android developer but I also have a good command over web development as well.
Some of my projects include:
A research portal for my campus where all the teachers and students can submit their research papers.The aim of this project is to promote free flow of knowledge using the power of the internet.
I am also currently developing a placement app for my campus and also developing an app concerning the safety of women as part of my winter project.
I am also into freelancing and have worked on a few projects from around the globe where I had to basically help in the development of Taxi booking app.
My work might not be that great I know but I would be more than happy if this even remotely helps someone in need.
