Around 6 months ago I've put a tor relay at home - one of only two running in the whole country (the other one is placed in the local hackerspace, also the only one in the country). Being interested in internet anonymity and network security, I've started reading about how tor works and how I can make a contribution in the project.

The reason being that in couple of years or less, you will see my country as a place where democracy quietly ceased to exist. And tor will be the only way reaching to the outside. On this note, I'd like to add that my goal is not only contributing by improving tor, but also making a shout to the free-minded 

Hi Nikola,

Good to hear your interest in the Tor GSoC. 

Regarding Atlas and Compass there is a project that we have not put up as a GSoC, but if you are interested gsathya or me could probably mentor you.

The most pressing topic regarding Atlas and Compass is getting the two platforms merged. The relevant ticket is this one: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/6682.

What is your skillset? Are you familiar with Angular.js or other relevant web technologies?

You can find me and gsathya on IRC on the channels #tor-dev and #tor on irc.oftc.net.
