My name is Guillermo- a Computer science student at UCLA. I am excited at the possibility of contributing to such a useful library! My application is not yet complete, but I will post my draft on here to demonstrate my intent to participate in the program.
For the competency test, I began to implement a representation of points on earth and used the great-circle formula to calculate the shortest distance between two points.
I will have a more in-depth explanation of the code by the final iteration of the draft along with the complete proposal and application.
