== A: An introduction ==
*Please describe yourself in three sentences, one of them regarding your current studies.
I'm currently studying electrical engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India. I'm an avid programmer with experience in Java, C++(STL), Javascript & Lua. I'm a former National Science Olympiad(NSO) gold medalist.
**Which languages do you speak?
I speak Hindi, English, Arabic, and German
== C: Contact ==
* Please state the (unique and identical where possible) nick you use on IRC and any other communication channel related to Octave. ''We want unique nicks. You might want to bold it.''
Github:**Akshit0201** Octave:**The Brainiac**
* Which time zone do you live in? Will that change over GSoC duration? ''Perhaps DST adjustment or a relocation. Note that both UTC and GMT are not aware of daylight saving time! Please state UTC+x or -x.''
I live in UTC+5:30, this summer I'll be in UTC+4.
* Please state the timeframe (in UTC+0) when you feel most comfortable working during GSoC. Where are your time buffers?
** ''Example: I usually code around 9.from 8:00 (UTC+4) to 18.11:00 and could also try from 4:00 to start earlier (~7.8:00) for few days ;-)''
== E: Coding experience ==
This part is one of the more important ones in your application. You are allowed to be as verbose as you want, as long as you stay on topic ;-)
* Please describe your experience with C++, Octave or Matlab m-scripts, OpenGL and Qt.
I've been coding in C++ for the past 4 years. I was introduced to the Standard Template Library last year and have been using that ever since. C++ was also the first language that I learned and I code in it almost every day.
Octave was the second language and I've created thousands of m-scripts. I love modular programming and create a separate m-script for every function that I use. I've implemented many Machine Learning algorithms in Octave like Neural Networks (for object recognition), K-Means (for optimizing), SVM's(for classification) and more.
My experience in OpenGL is limited to my programming lab assignments in which I had to create basic shapes using OpenGL. I've no experience in Qt
* Please describe your experience with other programming languages.
I learned JavaScript this year
* Please describe your experience with being in a development team. ''Do you have experience working with open source or free projects?''
* Please describe the biggest project you have written code for and what you learned by doing so. Also, describe your role in that project over time.
