I am a student at TU Wien (Vienna, Austria) and currently writing my Bachelor
Thesis. I love low-level programming (esp. using C on Unix) and I also
specialised on automated code validation as much as possible (which is part of
my Bachelor Thesis).
While I am new to working on font rendering, I do have a high appreciation for
this topic due to a professional background in web design. Naturally, lots of
things came together, when I browsed your list of project ideas and found the
idea of developing a testing framework - this sounds like an amazing way for me
to explore a new topic!
Apart from that I pick up things and ideas very quickly and would, should you
accept my proposal in April, read into the concepts and ideas of font rendering
until May; I know a professor to ask about this already. I faced a similar
situation with GSoC last year where I worked on Mono and got accustomed to a
large and previously unknown code base with many new ideas/concepts extremely
I would really love to be part of FreeType this summer but, due to my lack of
experience with font rendering in general, I wonder if you think that I am a
good fit to you?
Thanks for all your thoughts in advance! :)
