My project is “User Interface Improvements”. The goal of user interface design is to make the user's interaction as simple and efficient as possible, in terms of accomplishing user goals—what is often called user-centered design [1]. It will make User Interface of phpMyAdmin more friendly and simple to use. This project will include implementation of new features in phpMyAdmin to enhance its User Interface.

Since last few years I was hearing about Google Summer of Code from friends and seniors who had participated in GSOC which motivated me also to participate. So, I decided to take part in it and started developing my skills and gained a good grip over few technologies.


Chirayu Chiripal is a student of computer engineering at the SAL Institute of Technology & Engineering Research and a passionate programmer looking for opportunities to enhance his knowledge and also contribute to the society alongside. So he chose to work with open source community and started his journey with Wikipedia Community where he made wiki templates to help editors to do certain tasks easily. He loves coding in C/C++ and participates actively in many programming events such as Facebook Hacker Cup, Google Code Jam. He also likes website designing/developing using PHP, HTML, CSS, JQuery. Chirayu also have good knowledge of cyber security and can develop good quality & secure web applications.


I have experience of Web Designing using HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JQuery, JQuery UI and AJAX. Also, I have developed many small web apps using PHP and MySQL. I have also worked with Zend Framework 2.
My Recent Project was Attendance Management System which was developed in PHP 5 in which we used MySQL as backend. UI was designed using HTML5, CSS3, Javascript with the help Twitter Bootstrap v3, JQuery and JQuery UI with extensive use of AJAX. Resolving conflicts in Twitter Bootstrap v3 and JQuery UI was a good experience as we had integrated both of them into one project.
Hence, I have sound knowledge of PHP, MySQL, AJAX, JQuery, JQuery UI, CSS, Javascript which is required for this project.
