Abstract

This projects focus on how we must deliver feedback to someone who has uploaded a photo to the repository. It barely tells the uploader of what have they contribute to the community. To increase the interest of contribution, we can give the contributor a reward, like badge or star to the contributor, or maybe some real reward such as voucher etc, if what they've been uploaded to community make a great impact. In addition, to sort make sure if the photo is original or not, we can make some criteria and user agreement. Furthermore, photo plagiarism checker has an incandescent future to this project.

About Me

My Education
I am a undergraduate student of Bandung Institute of Technology, First Year of School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics. I am an active member of Google Developer Student Club at my institution.

About Program
I first heard about this program from the Google Developer Student Club, telling the Google Summer of Code program and searching for a project that will at least match with my current skill, and wikimedia it is.

Period of Project
Mainly, I will not have such a 'hard' vacation during my summer break, it is why I applied for this.

About GSoC and Outreachy
I haven't heard about Outreachy, so I didnt't plan to join it.

What This Project Mean To Me
It is an honor if my project is happening and people of the internet can use my work, I haven't been done something bigger than this and it surely will make a next great leap for me.

Past Experience
To be honest, i am not an expert in field of Android or another kind of language and open sources. I have just begun this current activity as a programming enthusiast not a long time ago. However, I am currently studying Android SDK by myself, and I have a particular skills regarding to the design of the UI. I also have an elementary level of C++ language.
