Drupal Google Summer of Code Proposal
My name is Gabriel Massaki and I am studying Computer Science at the University of Campinas (Brazil).
My e-mail is "gabrielmwb at gmail.com" and my nickname on IRC "Gabriel_Massaki".
I live in Brazil, so it'll be "Winter of Code" for me, I study at night so during the day I will have time to work on the project.
Have you contributed to a open source project before?
No, but I always wanted to contribute, because I like the philosophy of open source projects.
Why do you want to do a project involving Drupal?
I really like webdevelopment and I’ve already played around with drupal. In the end of this year, I’ll start the development of a project for a biologist that will use drupal as the web platform.
By involving myself in this project, I’ll be able to help the community that [in the future] might help me.
Drupal is a really powerful tool for the web. And I want to make it better for me and everyone that uses it.
I intend to improve the Groups.drupal.org UI for a better user-experience so that the drupal community may integrate in a better way. And also propose some fixes to correct the bugs when using the messaging/notification system.
