I'm Aaron Xiao from Peking University, Beijing, China. I'm interested in
the i18n projects for GSoC 2014, especially the <UniversalLanguageSelector
fonts for Chinese wikis>. I'm writing proposal for it currently. It will be
finished in 2 or 3 days.
I have contacted DChan and Liangent a week ago. Here are some personal
information copied from the previous self-introduction mail. Hope to see
your feedback, especially when I finish the proposal :)
*About me: *
2007~2011 B.S. in Computer Science @ Peking University
2011~2014 M.S. in Information Security @ Peking University
See more information on .
I have participated in GSoC twice, and have contributed code to Wireshark,
Blender, OGRE. So I'm familiar with open source culture, and know a bit
about how to play well with the community.
Specially, my work in GSoC 2011 was to build the i18n system for Blender,
See  for details. We also built the translators' community. I'm still
one of the admin currently. See .
[PHP, Web frontend]
I was the admin of http://zone.pku.edu.cn
before, but it cannot be visited
outside the campus.
Some other web apps I developed:  using PHP,  using Django. So I know
a little about web techs. I can learn new knowledge fast if I need it.
Of course, my mother tongue :)
- For Proposal
Actually I just finished the FOSS ASIA conference on 3rd Mar. And now I'm
taking a trip around the Southeast Asia. So I don't have much time before
13th. But I'll try my best to discuss the project with you and learn about
the information. Then submit the proposal ASAP.
- For the Project
I'll graduate on early July, and then wait for my H1B visa to come into
force in October. So my full-time window is from July to September.
According to the GSoC schedule, I can only work as a part-time job before
mid-term, and work for full-time before final-term. But I promise to finish
the feature on-time, and push it forward to be released finally ( Even
after the GSoC event, of course. )
- After the Event
I'm interested in I18N projects. I'm always trying to promote great open
source projects to Chinese, as well as other non-English users. So maybe I
can deal with the other i18n related things after the event, and keep going
along with the community :)
