About the Author
Shantanu Tushar has been an advanced GNU/Linux user since his college days. He works as an application developer and contributes to the software in KDE Projects. Shantanu has been fascinated by computers since he was a child, and spent most of his high-school years writing C code to perform daily activities. Since he started using GNU/Linux, he has been using shell scripts to make the computer do all the hard work for him. He also takes time to visit students at various colleges to introduce them to the power of free software, including various tools. Shantanu is a well-known contributor in the KDE community and works on Calligra, Gluon, and the Plasma subprojects. He looks after maintaining Calligra Active (KDE's official document viewer for tablets), Plasma Media Center, and the Gluon Player. He believes one day programming will be so easy that everybody will love to write programs for their computers.
