Hi Frederick,

Thanks for welcoming. I apologize for the delayed response. As I was in vacation I could not respond.


To The group:

It is good to be part of this working group. My name is Balaji N V, and I am working for Samsung. I work out of Samsung Bangalore, India office.  This is my first standard participation.


I would be interested in declaration of APIs and applications, concrete APIs and Policy description. To begin with I would like just to observe and review the proposals. Going forwrd I can contribute as well in these areas. I have hands-on implementation experience of Web runtime.

I would like to understand what it takes to participate in Interop. Once I understand I should be able to decide whether I can commit for it.


I follow OMTP Bondi standardization as well. I am not a part of Bondi though, and I hope to enroll myself soon.


I would not be able to make it to the forthcoming F2F meeting as I just got to see the notification today. Hope I could it make it to the next one.
