My name is Nikita, I’m a second-year master student from Moscow and looking for a project to participate in Google Summer of Code this year.
I’ve found the project: https://github.com/numfocus/gsoc/blob/master/2017/ideas-list-stan.md
about implementing protocol buffer support for Stan.
Could you say, please, is it still relevant?
There is a proposal about it on wiki, does it mean that it’s already in work?
If this project is available I could start to see into and write an application for GSOC.
If not, It would be also very interesting for me to be involved in related tasks.
A few words about me:
I have a good background in math, algorithms and advanced machine learning. Currently I’m most engaged and doing research in theoretical optimization, but also interesting in programming and technologies.
I’m new to open source community but have some industrial experience (mostly in C++ and Python).
I have a webpage with CV located there.
