First posting

My name is Mendy Meng, I came from a beautiful coastal city in the southeast of China. I got my bachelor degree of Computer Science in China. Then in 2010, I made a big decision that left my hometown and went to a foreign country for further education.

Sydney is really a great city where you can enjoy the multiculture life and various attractions. I make friends with people from all around the world and learn the advanced topic in the area of Information Technology. Lives in UNSW is full of challenge and happiness. After I came here I'm getting familiar with other platforms besides windows. GNOME becomes my daily working environment. It has lots of user friendly features built in, less memory usage and broder hardware compatibility.

In September, I heard about GNOME Outreach Program for Women. I start using GTG.
I asked Luca to be my mentor. At first I was really green hand, I even got confused when using launchpad to merge the code. Luca is really patient and helps me a lot. Luckily, I was accepted to be one of the participants. The coming 3 month is busy but definitely interesting, I'm glade to take the challenge and make me a good contributor.
