* ''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.'' Again this will have to be Neil Modular Tracker which is a software package for creating electronic music similar to Jeskola Buzz. I am the main developer and maintainer of that software.

* ''Please state the commits and patches you already contributed to Octave. This question (one of the most important parts by the way) is the only part of your application our wiki admins will edit for you even after the application deadline. Code sometimes speaks louder than many words do.'' I haven't commited code to Octave yet, however I started implementing my proposed GSoC project and C++ code that compiles to oct files can be found here https://bitbucket.org/bucket_brigade/octave-sound.

I have also successfully completed GSoC two times before. One time for the JACAL symbolic algebra system and one time for pandas statistics package. For JACAL I implemented polynomial interpolation and polynomial factorization algorithms and for pandas I have implemented various plotting algorithms.
