Hello! My full name is Ignacio Caro Cumplido. I'm a computer engineer student from Extremadura university (Spain), I am 25 years old and I have been programming for 7 years. I am in 3º year of degree, also have Web developer title that gave me some useful/helpful knowledge. Currently I can program in shell, MySQL, c/c++, java( and servlet), javascript, vhdl, cobol and assembly.

I chose "Add a picture library" in submit but I also like "Better profile support", "Addon submissions". I'm open to other requests if mentors think that my profile fits better in those areas

Tell us about the computer(s) and devices you have available for working on your SoC project?

I only have a laptop with i7-4700MQ and GTX 765M, 12Gb RAM 

When did you first start programming?

First year of web developer title 

Are you a user of Kodi? When did you first start using it?

Recent user. Not long ago, in my smartphone

What do you primarily use Kodi for?

It's a complete media center

Have you contributed to other Open Source projects? If so, which projects and can we see some of your code?

No, is the first time that i try it

If you have not contributed to open source projects, do you have other code we can look at?

Well, i have some little projects in my Github: BrioMC

What sorts of programming projects have you done on your own time?

Outside of work, I only made small scripts to improve my experience on some pages (delete spaces between images, collect data and save them, obtain a src and download them directly when you are within a certain domain "

How much time do you have available, and how would you plan to use it?

Currently I have little spare time outside of grade responsibility. I try to use this time to rest and learn python or work to continue studying.

Do you plan to have a job or study during the summer in conjunction with Summer of Code?

My plan is mainly to work in Summer of Code as long as possible and study some subjects from the following year of my degree
There was some previous work done a long time ago to introduce a Picture Library but it was abandoned, see discussion thread 141169 (thread) and PR 1562 (PR) not sure if you can get anything useful from it as the code has changed a lot since then, I don't know any of the detail regarding it so it's just a case of making you aware in case it might provide any pointers for the direction to take.
