I'm Aniketh Girish. Welcomes you to my Blog. I will be writing all sorts of thing which happen in my life. May it be technical, non-technical or just sharing of my experience. Anyone can Sneek-peek in no issue :D.
I’m currently pursuing B.Tech in Computer Science at Amrita School of Engineering, Amritapuri. I am a FOSS enthusiast and FREEdom lover.
I believe that well-developed software's can make a mark on the world hence I love to contribute to open source projects that would help in the
betterment of the world and make our world a better place to live in.
As an Open Source Developer, I mostly work on KDE API’s and software's. I was selected for Season of KDE 2016-2017 for a project related to the software called KStars. I spend my free time writing articles for magazines like Open Source for You.
FOSS is a term inclusive of free software and open source software. It is an approach, that is now gaining more recognition due to its potential benefits, in addition to providing an ideal platform for learning. FOSS@Amrita is a student community at Amrita University. Being one of the most active student communities on the campus, we encourage support and mentor students to improve their technical and social skills through contributing to open source. We aim at encouraging students to embrace the free and open source approach that is fast gaining momentum. We are a community of students that support and guide each other towards making open source contributions, and towards the usage of free software.
I love to code under pressure. I'm basically a newbie to this area, though. But, My will to learn urges me to do better in these. I'm very much enthusiastic about this field. Let me see, till how much will I make :)
Basically, I think to mentor someone you need to have hell lot of idea in your mind. You used have done a lot of research on the topic. Even though, I love to share my knowledge with everyone. So, I love to mentor in a sense :P .
I really like to work on cyber security too. I am really interested in the field of web-exploitation. Will be doing some CTFs for fun and during my free time.
I love to do designing during my free time. I play around with illustrator and photoshop for fun. I haven't given stress to learn it, But what all I have learned is just from experience working on the tool while needed.
I'm a great fan of high-resolution images of anything. I love to take photographs which are pretty good for the eyes. I try to get deep into the creativity side of it as long as I convey the idea I wish to implement.
It can be said that I'm a bit of creative. I show off my creative skills by developing front-end of websites and design logos. I also try to implement a lot of ideas in the programming area which could be a life hack, which will be helpful for the betterment of the world.
We here at FOSS@Amrita despite being seniors or juniors we mentor each and every person to be good at things. We work as a team. I'm proud to be one of them. We work in the field of Open-Source for the betterment of the world. The greatest part of this is that We giveaway code as anything.
I have always viewed the mission of Wikipedia to be much bigger than just creating a killer website.
We're doing that of course, and having a lot of fun doing it, but a big part of what motivates us is our
larger mission to affect the world in a positive way.
What can we put into the hands of people under oppressive regimes to help them? For me, a big part of it is information, knowledge - the ability to defeat propaganda by understanding it.

Sharing is good, and with digital technology, sharing is easy.
Software patents are dangerous to software developers because they impose monopolies on software ideas.
Free software is software that respects your freedom and the social solidarity of your community. So it's free as in freedom.
Father of Open Source
I think it's very important to have a feedback loop, where you're constantly
thinking about what you've done and how you could be doing it better.
I think that's the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
People work better when they know what the goal is and why. It is important that people look forward to coming to work in the morning and enjoy working.
When Henry Ford made cheap, reliable cars people said, 'Nah, what's wrong with a horse?' That was a huge bet he made, and it worked.
