Hello. My name is Taygun and i am a first year student in Computer Science at Polytehnique University of Bucharest. I have seen your the scilab project in GSoC 2012 list and i would like to work at this project. I saw the proposed ideas and i am intersesting in working in the numerical computing or in the extend scilab area. I was atracted by numerica computing because math was my passion during the highschool and after i came at college i finded out that there are reallly useful math tools like octave and scilab. The exetending section is attracting me because there are many new technologies i can learn from here.
I am used to code in C , and i started to use C++ templates as well . My mathematical skills are very good because at my university , in the first year . math is teached very much and very in depth. In what concern open source projects i am pretty new to this. This year i found out about open source. Curently i am participating at an open source education class held by older collegues of mine , and as well i work for improving the Programming Class website with two other collegues lead by a senior student.
Although i know i am pretty new in the open source world i would like to get involved as much as i can . Concernig your project ideeas i have some questions : Are my skills acceptable for this kind of work ? How can i start contributing to scilab ?
