== A: An introduction ==
* Please describe yourself in three sentences, one of them regarding your current studies.
My name is Brayan Stiven Zapata Impatá and I am a native Spanish speaker, but I am also proficient in English. I am currently a PhD student in robotics and machine learning at University of Alicante, Spain. My background includes a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, specialized in computer vision and artificial intelligence, and a Master's degree in Computer Engineering.
* Why do you want to participate in the Google Summer of Code? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
My desire in taking part of the GSoC is driven mainly by a need of developing further my programming skills as well as working on a real open project. I have been working on many private researches and, although research is carried out with the idea of helping grow our society, it is usually very jealous of sharing. This is my first time participating at GSoC but I hope to learn a lot from it!
* Why are you choosing Octave?
On my very first day at college when I began the journey to get my Bachelor's degree, what I was firstly introduce to was Octave. Some time has passed but I still find the Octave project a quite useful resource, I did even use it for my Bachelor's thesis. Since I feel in debt with this tool and its community I want to give it some of my time and knowledge in return.
