Hi OSGeo mentors,

First, I am sorry to write so late, but the information about SoC came to me
in all that confusion with a long delay. But still, I would like to take 
part. :-)

I am Linda Kladivova, a master student of Geomatics from Czech Technical 
University in Prague currently studying at Kansas State University in the 
US, coming home at the beginning of June.

I would like to work on a new GRASS GIS startup mechanism. It is a very 
important topic and I remember, when I started with Grass, it was not much 
pleasant for me and I fully understand that this start can discourage many 
people from doing more work. But It is a pity because Grass GIS can offer a 
lot of useful things. 

For my technical knowledge, I am used to working with QGIS, ArcGIS and I 
have experience with simple tasks in the Grass environment as well. In my 
life I was mainly focused on databases - SQL (PL/SQL) and I also deal with 
the development of automation scripts related to databases via Powershell 
and Python. I do not have any experience with wxPython, but I had several 
courses at school focused on C++ (Qt framework). I think this project would 
generally enrich me in terms of programming. Those experiences I could then 
definitely employ when programming my diploma thesis - a library in Python 
addressing the problem of missing personal data in the Czech Cadastre 
Exchange Format. You can have a look at it at my GitHub profile: https://

I would be very happy to participate in this project that really makes sense
and helps people. I have already contacted and discussed the features of the
project with Anna and Vaclav Petras and Martin Landa. All three would be 
willing to be my mentors. 
Thank you for your consideration and hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
