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.
Project title: Spatial computing environment; room modeling
Project details: a more detailed description.
Synopsis: a short description.
Benefits to Debian
Deliverables: quantifiable results e.g. 'Port Debian to VAX', 'Write 3 articles for X website'
Project schedule: how long will the project take? When can you begin work?
Exams and other commitments: I have exams in early June and our second semester ends in Late June or early July. So I'll mostly do coding during the weekends to meetup with work.
Other summer plans: I am a student at the University and will be free the entire summer. My semester ends in early July so I'll mostly be coding during weekends during the semester to catch up and fully after exams. I have no planned vacations but will inform my mentors if anything new comes up. However, I plan on attending the DebConf 15 in Germany in August or so.
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.
- Are you applying for other projects in SoC?
I am applying to the ASCEND project but my Debian application is my priority.
