Open Source Development Experience

Have worked under the Google Summer of Code program 2008 as a contract worker for the project OpenID Attribute Exchange Implementation with Drupal. (what is openID AX ?) Very little work has been done to implement OpenID AX so far. Owing to lack of suitable references/examples, I had to read the specifications of the protocol and then device my ways of implementing them. This project has been mentored by James Walker
