A: An introduction
Please describe yourself in three sentences, one of them regarding your current studies.
My name is Nikita Gordiienko, at the moment I’m studying Computer Science at National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute". I speak Russian and English. My background includes Discrete Mathematics, Computer Science, and Machine Learning.
Why do you want to participate in the Google Summer of Code? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
This is the first time I participate at GSoC. I believe that it is a great chance to apply all already gained skills in order to solve the real problem and consequently help and be a part of the entire community. Furthermore, gained working experience and skills would help me to become a professional contributor.
Why are you choosing Octave?
I became a user of Octave due to the Machine Learning online course provided by Stanford University. And the Octave project proposes to integrate knowledge of machine learning with programming. Finally, I found pretty useful possibility to interact with the contributors and creators of Octave.
Please state the (unique and identical where possible) nick you use on IRC and any other communication channel related to Octave.

Which time zone do you live in? Will that change over GSoC duration?
