Raunak was still able to find the time to contribute to the Mifos Initiative even as he attended the University of Delhi, where he recently graduated. He was brought onto the Mifos team as a Google Summer of Code intern and had an immediate impact. Raunak is a front-end developer with a passion for design. He has worked extensively on Angular and React, while possessing experience with javascript on front-end frameworks.
