Hi, I'm Pranam Lashakri!

Computer Engineer

What I am all about.

I am a computer engineer trying to make marks on the world with the use of technology. My field of interests is data structures, algorithms and image processing which requires critical thinking process in order to solve the problem.

I am most comfortable with C/C++, Python and JavaScript for programming but I am also flexible to work with any of the programming languages and learn new programming languages too.

I have been a student of Google Summer of Code 2018 and 2019 and completed it successfully with the Boost C++ library as the mentor organisation. In 2020, I became a mentor and in 2021 an org admin in GSoC where I guided multiple students in multiple projects.

Currently working with Collabora productivity to develop the LibreOffice/Collabora office.

Till now all the work I have done as a computer engineer is opensource.

Boost Review Manager

Boost C++ Libraries

A boost review manager has the responsibility to take care of the formal public review of a new proposed library into the boost as well as reviewing library himself and make the final decision on the status of the library acceptance. I took the responsibility of reviewing the new JSON library proposed by the C++ Alliance board member Vinnie Falco and Krystian Stasiowski. The review concluded in the acceptance of the library.
