[wp-hackers] Fwd: [GSoC - 2014] Introducing Myself

Hi! I'm a student from India. I am interested in participating in Google
Summer of Code - 2014 with WordPress.
I want to take up the  "Forms Plug-in" project idea from the ideas page
[1]. Has there been any work on this? I guess that the idea would involve a
Plugin/Widget with a Settings Page to add new Surveys and Forms while also
providing the controls to edit the Saved surveys. Themes for the
Surveys/Forms and Other Complementary things can always be  added later. As
per my understanding, the project would require a good amount of PHP and
WP-based interaction with the MySQL Databases along with JavaScript and
AJAX for Data Validation.

Please correct me on this if I am wrong and advise me on how to get started
and get more acquainted with the community / development process.

- My background -
I have developed two simple plugins for Wordpress [2],[3] and have a fair
knowledge of the process. I have worked on several hobby projects with PHP,
MySQL, JavaScript, AJAX and Python [4]. I have also programmed in C and
Visual Basic and have a know-how of svn. I am on the
SSMS(Student Society For Mess Services)
 committee of my college, in which I'm responsible for developing and
maintaining a data oriented application to handle student billings. I was
also responsible for building a registration portal for an all-India event.
