Hi there !
My name is Emeric Grange, I am a 23 years old french student, in second year of master degree in computer science. I decided to apply to the Google Summer of Code with a project related to what I had been doing in my internship at http://www.httv.fr during this past year : video decoding.
As far as I remember, I’ve always been in contact with computers through my father’s hobby, slowly learning how to use them for playing, working, and then how to make them better. The languages I learned include QBasics, C, HTML, PHP, C++, Java, X86 Assembly, Python, Ruby and a few others. I have now decided to focus on low level programming, the most interesting area in my opinion.
I’ve used free software for many years, and made various small contributions to existing softwares along the way, including debugging, support and translations, while I was learning to be a programmer. My motivation to join the Google Summer of Code is to dive into a concrete project and to enrich it with new features, now that I feel capable of doing so.

- I will be on #mesa-devel and #xorg-devel freenode.net IRC channels most of the time, as “emericg”.
Feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or comments about this work !
