I digged into remaining subjects. I think the other parts can be done. Also I am very fimiliar with LAMP stack. I can build and write code for LAMP stack. Firstly as you recommended I start with LAMP stack and its prerequisites. > > It sounds like you're proposing to write some application from scratch, > but it is unclear which one and why.

I want to get fimiliar with code and try to fork it. Can you recommend me a starting point for this? Is there any task for me to complete any task to improve my chance to be selected for GSOC?
