I'm Sampath Liyanage, a 3rd year undergraduate of university of
moratuwa, Sri Lanka. I'm doing a Computer Science and Engineering
degree. I'm interested on web based technologies like PHP, Javascript,
Ajax and I have some experience working on them.

I hope to do a GSOC project of PHPMYADMIN this year. I'm interested on
the projects "Interface improvements" and "User interface
enhancements". While a normal web application uses regular http
requests which makes a user awaits for the response, PMA uses ajax
requests mostly. It makes PMA faster, efficient and more user friendy.
Also PMA is widely used by developers, it's opensource and free. These
made me interested on contributing to PMA.

I found a bug while I was observing current features
(http://sourceforge.net/p/phpmyadmin/bugs/4299/). Also purposed a fix
with https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/pull/976

Thank you.
