Q. Why do you want to participate in the Google Summer of Code? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
A. I want to contribute to open source organizations and get some experience with working them. So, GSoC seamed perfect to me. Also, If I once start contributing to open source then I will become a regular contributor.
Q.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!
A. I applied for GSoC in my first year and I got rejected as I, unfortunately, selected the difficult project which was beyond my scope, but that just gave me inspiration to not look back and not be afraid of any failure. This time I am fully ready, I know my weakness and strength and ready to give up whatever it takes to achieve my goal.
Q. Why are you choosing Octave? A. I love mathematics and programming so Octave seemed perfect for me to simultaneously work on maths and programming and that too in a big organization like this. It's a dream come true.
