Brief background: I am 2nd year undergraduate IT student at Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, India. I have already done some work on college project of “ERP system” using PHP. I am interested to do work on Open Source, Shell Scripting, C/C++, HTML5, CSS, JS and PHP. I am also working on wordpress plugin of “Syllabus Management System”.

Quick review of present state and codebase of project:
I have tested the project by cloning from BRL-CAD github. I have also read the previous logs of BRL-CAD IRC. I have many improvements in mind which I listed below. This project is working in PHP. There is some drawbacks in the current project which are discussed below:
Improvement in Searching
Improvement in Import/Export
Login by Gmail/Facebook
New Features :
Add Stepcode in this project
Add this project facility with BRL-CAD Desktop Application
Improve the code and provide the resusability
I have seen the current front end and I experienced that it is not much user friendly and well styled. I wish to improve it and add some more features.
Searching: By different options like property wise, date-time wise, user wise.
BRL-CAD desktop Application:-
Add the interface on desktop application to fetch the material property form website and provide more features like:-
add update show search I also want to add stepcode facility with this project so this project is communicate with step code.
Login with Social Media like Facebook, Google .
Community Bonding Period I will get myself familiar with the code and also study / learn MediaWiki through its documentation.
Also talk to MediaWiki persons for suggestions on the implementation. Talk to BRL-CAD people about the adding removing of features from this proposal to work on.
Week 1 to 3 Understand the code, Improvement the user interface using Paging, Searching.
Add color of materials, store hexcodes in database.

Review the all project and to do some pending work.
I will be available for 35 hours/week however this is flexible.
I have been searching from last year for the projects which match my skillset. This Project is very matching with my abilities so I want to work on this. Also I have studied a subject called Computer Graphics this semester and I am really attracted towards BRL-CAD community since it is a great community which works on graphics. Also making a project for American Army is kind of honor as it may help the defence forces to maintain peace in the world.
I have too much interest in Open Source as people here help / teach / play /interact with each other and working in this way is fun. So I wish to pursue my career also in Open Source. Why me? Because I have worked on Wordpress a lot and I saw MediaWiki is very similar to it. I am state level champion in technical event “ERP System”. I stood first in two competitions.
