Student Application Template

To fill this in, copy the source text. Please don't rename the template.

This is a suggestion for the kind of information we'll find useful from students in their submissions. Remember -- you're going to be committing to several months' work. The more information and planning you can provide up-front, the more we (and Google!) will have to go on when we're ranking your application. Do not forget adding your submission at SummerOfCode2015/StudentApplications

I am a freshman Computer Engineering student at the University Institute of Technology, Bandjoun Cameroon. I have C, R and C++. I am enthusiastic about open source technologies and would love to contribute code to the project. I am interested in OS development and will love to give back to the hacker community through this year's GSoC session.


I have been enthusiastic about open source technologies ever since I read how to become a Computer Hacker by Eric S Raymond. I have been using Ubuntu Linux, a debian clone for about a year and I've really fallen in love with the system. As an African I believe in the power of Open Source and it's impact it can make on our continent. I would really love to make the Debian community better by contributing code through this summer's GSoC program.

I am applying to the ASCEND project but my Debian application is my priority.
