I am pretty much interested in A.P.E.F project idea for GSoC 2012. But to be very honest I am new to Open Source Development and I have never worked on any open source project. But I am a hard worker and I want to learn new things. And apart from that I am very good at Mathematics and I have keen interest in it. My skill sets are C, C++ and Core Java. I am pursuing B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering. I am opting for this project because I love Mathematics and Programming. If this project requires me to learn something new, I am ready to do it too, quickly and if it requires my post-GSoC-contribution then I'll happily agree on that too because I love playing with Maths and Programming Languages. Moreover, our engineering curriculum also had a subject on Numerical Analysis which I was good at and awarded A grade.
So I would appreciate if anyone guide me through writing proposals and what should I do now to increase my chances of selection.
