[Numpy-discussion] Willing to contribute to SciPy & NumPy ...

 I would like to seriously start contributing to NumPy and/or SciPy, as much
as I possibly can.

Because NumPy & SciPy are new to me, I'm not so sure whether I could be of
some help. But if my help is welcomed, and if it makes sense to ask: "What
could I best contribute to?", then perhaps some background information about
myself would be useful ...

I completed an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, along with some
mathematics and physics courses. For the mathematics, I did some Calculus,
Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Fourier series, Fourier & Laplace
transform. In Physics, I did up to and including a first course in Quantum

I also did some undergraduate research work, that involved computational
high energy physics (proton-proton collision). The work was done with some
Mathematica packages (FeynArts <http://www.feynarts.de/>).

I currently work in the software industry and for the past few months, have
been performing both software development and system administration tasks.
In terms of object-oriented programming, my main experience is with Java.
I'm a beginner with Python. I used Python at work to automate the
reverse-engineering process of some Java programs.

Career-wise, one of my goals is to go into scientific computing, and use
Python as the main programming language, and to perhaps pursue graduate
studies in Computational Physics, hence my current interest for contributing
to NumPy & SciPy.

If you wish to know more about me I have a LinkedIn profile at

Documentation-wise, I can use LaTeX. For instance, my resume, which is
attached with this email, was written with LaTeX. It's noteworthy to mention
that I like to work on documentation, as long as it balances with coding
work [?].

If that makes any sense to you and you have ideas on projects that I could
contribute to, please let me know, and I'll be very happy to do my very best
to contribute.

Best regards,
