* Please describe yourself in three sentences, one of them regarding your current studies.

* I studied Automation and Robotics for 2.5 years in Krakow, Poland. I later moved to Billings, MT in the US to help take care of my grandparents. In Billings I continued my studies but changed my major to Aeronautical Science.

+
* I don't do a lot of programming at my studies but I still like it and that's why I wanted to participate in Google Summer of Code. I hope to learn more about how opensource collaboration efforts are managed and have some fun programming.
** What's your overall background? ''The general field you work in or are studying, e.g. computer science, physics, artificial intelligence, control theory...''
+
** I have no previous experience with Google Summer of Code and am quite unfamiliar with how it all works.
During my studies in Poland I took courses on control theory. I simulated physical problems and how to control them. The tools I used were Matlab/Simulink. As part of general programming courses I learned C++ and Qt.
+
* I had a friend back in Poland who participated in GSoC and she chose Octave and that's why I wanted to give it a try too.
* Why do you want to participate in the Google Summer of Code? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
+
 
I don't do a lot of programming at my current studies but I still have a desire for programming. I want to participate in GSoC to be able to contribute to Octave, learn more about how such big projects work and have fun doing so.
 
** Please also describe your previous experience with the GSoC, if any. ''Includes any community-bonding, mentor experience or application, not necessarily accepted. We use this subquestion to identify which students are unfamiliar with how the program goes, providing further support. It has no negative impact on your rating!''
 
I have no previous experience with Google Summer of Code and am quite unfamiliar with how it all works.
 
* Why are you choosing Octave?
 
I had an acquaintance back in Poland who participated in GSoC and she chose Octave. I also worked in Matlab some and appreciate the value of these computational programs. That is why I would like to contribute to Octave.

* Did you select a task from our list of proposals and ideas?
+
I would like to contribute on the TISEAN package. I really like the idea of getting to know how to make packages for octave. I don't have any commitments during the summer.

** If you apply for a task you have added yourself instead, please describe this task, its scope and people you already talked to concerning it. What field of tasks did you miss on the list?
** If yes, what task did you choose? Please describe what part of it you especially want to focus on if you can already provide this information. ''Please also wiki-link the page for your elaborated proposal here.''
 
I really like the idea of getting to know how to make packages for octave and to link multiple types of code together. PLEASE READ ELABORATED PROPOSAL which is available [[User:Josiah425:TISEAN_Package|here]]. Also my current PROGRESS is available on [https://bitbucket.org/josiah425/tisean| BitBucket].
 
 
* Please provide a rough estimated timeline for your work on the task. ''This should include the GSoC midterms and personal commitments like exams or vacation ("non-coding time"). Optionally include two or three milestones you expect.''

I expect to spend about 6-7 weeks on the project. See my [[User:Josiah425:TISEAN_Package|elaborated proposal]] for a time estimate breakdown. Each topic can be considered a milestone.
