Future Work

There is always a scope of improvements. Softwares need maintenance to keep working fine in new changing environments. With newer versions of Amahi got released to support latest fedora versions, plugins for the same needs maintenance. Friending feature needs to be adapted for Most of the work in Let’s encrypt feature is complete but still needs some development.


I enjoyed contributing to Amahi and learned lots of new things in the way. This was my second time doing Google Summer of Code with Amahi. Thanks to this awesome program, I can say that I have become a better software developer overall and now I am not afraid to contribute to big codebase projects. I would also like to thanks @cpg for mentoring me so well during this program. During this period, I have gained lots of new skills related to coding, software maintenance, system design, etc that will always help me in my career ahead.

Cheers to open source!!
