Hello, Ronnie

Thank you for your interest!

Based on our projects page, do you have any specific ideas for working on
NumPy? Because the deadline for hiring technical writers is so close (May
17) it might be worth thinking of writing your Statement of Interest as
soon as possible.

Let me know if you have further questions.

> Hello,
> I am Ronnie Gandhi, a Computer Science undergrad from IIT Roorkee in my
> final year.I am interested in working on NumPy's documentation problem
> I have successfully completed *GSoD2020
> <https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/2020/participants/project-libreoffice-krezhairo>*(my
> display name is Krezhairo) under *LibreOffice*, I have done* GSoC 2019*,

> development for quite a while. I have also done Data Science internships at
> *Microsoft*, Hyderabad in 2019 and 2020.
> I am very well versed with GitHub, git, and CLI tools. Also from my past
> GSoD2020 experience I know Sphinx, Markdown, reStructuredText, XML as well.
> In terms of technical writing experience,
>    - Under the Season of Docs 2020 program, I was given an opportunity to
>    populate the wiki pages for the Calc functions of LibreOffice. I updated
>    and populated the wiki pages for 340 of Calc functions in many categories
>    for which the documentation was quite shallow and incomplete on the wiki
>    pages.
>       - For some of the examples of previous technical writing that I
>       have successfully completed in GSoD 2020 under LibreOffice where I
>       edited/populated 340+ sparse wiki pages of Calc functions. Some of the
>       examples are as follows:
>       -

>          -
>          https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Calc_Functions/CHIDIST

>          -

>       is the new link where the "Find Functions" page is shifted sorry for the
>       blank page)
>    - I have also had created the developer docs as a part of my GSoC2019
>    and GsoC2020 program updating my progress under CGAL org. (some

> For my python experience,
>    - As a data scientist intern at Microsoft, a large part of my work was
