I'm participating in the Google Summer of Code, a program in which students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project over summer; I'll be working with the scikit-learn project to add several features to the tree module. You can read my proposal here.

The program also requires that I publish a blog about my project and work; as a result, this series of posts will recount progress, what I've been up to, and what I've learned.

I'll be prepending all of the posts in this series with GSoC Week #, and they will be tagged under gsoc.

You're awesome for reading this! Feel free to follow me on GitHub if you want to track the progress of my Summer of Code project, or subscribe to blog updates via email.
