Finally into GSoC

It has been over a year since I made my first contribution for KDE and I truly loved every bit of it since then. It all started from October 2018 when I was trying to get habitual of using Linux as it is good for development but ended up in really hating it, due to its Desktop environment. Then, I tried KDE plasma and fell in love with it. I began exploring various KDE projects and really loved the work that the community is doing. I really wanted to be a part of it.

I tried out using Elisa and was really mesmerised by its beautiful user interface. I then began contributing to the same project and then started working for Krita.

I applied for GSoC 2019, but was rejected due to lack of slots for the organisation. Though I was sad, I trusted my mentor's decision and I made into the program this year.

Coming to my project, I will be working on Integration of MyPaint brush engine in Krita. MyPaint developers have separated out their brush engine in the form of a library Libmypaint. Since then, the brush engine has been integrated in most of the painting applications. Integrating the same in Krita will enable artists to work with MyPaint brushes which they love a lot.

I will try to give my best in the project this summer and I don't care about the end result of GSoC as I finally am a part of KDE community.
