OSGeo Experience and Roles:

OSGeo User.png  OSGeo Coder.png   I am Ashish Kumar, a final-year undergraduate student from IIT (BHU) Varanasi, India pursuing a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering. My experience with the open-source started in 2020 when I contributed to pgRouting through GSoC and added two functions to it from the Boost Graph Library. It was an enriching experience in terms of the learnings that I had, and hence I have been contributing to pgRouting since then. Later, in GSoC 2021, I again contributed to pgRouting and ported the VROOM functionality to the vrpRouting codebase, acting as an initiative to effectively solve the real-world Vehicle-Routing problems using some standard library with pgRouting. I'm still an active developer of pgRouting, responsible for making the releases and adding more functionalities to it. I love solving challenging problems, along with exploring new technologies and experimenting with them, and open-source has definitely helped me in that.
