My name is Damian Martinez and I’m from Spain. I’m interested in apply for this project because I have good knowledge about Python, C and embedded systems and I’m interested in IoT too. I am studying IT Engineering and I made some projects related with this kind of things, for instance an inclinometer for hospital beds’ using an Arduino Uno, a Raspberry Pi and XBee modules for communication, or a DTMF encoder/decoder using a Raspberry Pi. For these projects I always use Python and C and I used a lot of sensors like accelerometer or RTC.
Finally I want to say that I know nothing about RIOT OS but now I want to learn more about it working on this project or by my own.
If you are still interested, the next step for you would be to prepare a short application . The main part of the application consists of your proposed (high-level) project plan. Maybe have also a look at our last dev-meeting minutes  for some more information.
Furthermore we would like to see some first involvement with RIOT by contributing a (simple) pull request to RIOT. The purpose of this is to get you an idea of how the community works and what RIOT development is about. Have a look at our development procedures  and contributing guidelines . The easiest way to get involved is by looking at issues marked as ‘Newbie-Task-Candidate’ and to fix one (or more) of them.
