Subject: [boost] Application for GSOC 2015

My name is Alexandru Hulea and I am an undergraduate student at University
POLITEHNICA of Bucharest. I am in the third year at The Faculty of
Automatic Control and Computers. My email can be found at [1]. About
availability, I think 40 hours / week will be enough, but I will work more
if the complexity of the project will require that. The only factors which
will affect my availability will be the exams which are scheduled in the
first 2 weeks of June.
About my educational background, I took some courses related to the
projects I apply including C Programming, Data Structures, OOP, Algorithms,
Parallel and Distributed Algorithms. I participated in 2 summer schools
working on a project in Android and on another project in OpenGL with C++.
My favourite programming language is C++. I have 3 years experience in
C/C++ and I am interested in scientific work like developing libraries of
C++. I like to solve algorithms exercises, to find tricky optimisations for
ACM exercises or other programming contests and recently I discover the
wonderful world of parallel computing. I am interested in contributing to
the Boost C++ Libraries because the project contains the parts of
programming I like the most: optimisation and parallel programming. I have
experience in C++ 98/03, 11/14, Standard Library and I worked with Git.
Unfortunately I have no experience with Boost C++ Libraries. I like to work
in Visual Studio on Windows and with Sublime Text and gcc, valgrind in
Ubuntu. I am familiar only with JavaDoc speaking of software documentation.
About the projects, I find interesting: "Concurrent Hash Tables", "Enhanced
vector and deque containers" and "Boost uBLAS a library for matrix
computations". I see these projects as optimisation and syncronization
My biggest projects are an OpenGL game written in C++ and a client-server
application written in C++ too as a homework for the Protocols course. You
can find them at [2].
About the application on the projects, could you tell me how I can show my
skills in this field ? I searched for a section with a projects or some
tests with bugs but I didn't find it. I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you,

Alexandru Hulea
