My name is Ania and I am currently a junior at Illinois Wesleyan University
where I am pursuing a B.F.A. in Arts (Graphic Design) and B.S. in Computer
Science. I am more of a visual person and I have a considerable design
experience (you can check my work out here: www.aniabui.com - there are
some links to my profiles there as well), but my programming skills are
limited to the coursework and what I do in college, which means that
everything what I learn in Computer Science become tools to develop my
passion in design.
I have already read through the ideas page and there is one that grasped my
attention (Preferences GUI refactoring), but I am not sure if those
projects would be a good match for me and would take the most out of all my
Python. So, I'll need to catch up with the libraries used for UI
development and probably boost up my current level of expertise in those
I am super excited about the opportunity provided by the Google Summer of
Code and I was wondering if you wished to mentor a design-oriented
programmer that would need to polish her skills a little bit so that my
code is of the same production-ready quality as my designs?
PS: I can't wait to dive into the open source community!
