I have a piece of paper saying that I have an Associates Degree in Computer Science, but in the time between finishing the CS classes and then finally completing the non-CS classes, I rather let my skills atrophy and gather rust. My goal at Interlock is to brush away that rust.
(copied from an email sent to the mailing list)
My interests lie in Ruby (non-web), Qt, and possibly C++. If no one is interested in working with these, (re)learning them with me, etc, I might consider doing some Python, since that seems a bit more in vogue among the membership/friends.
I do have some specific projects in mind:
GUI for OpenWouxun (http://owx.chmurka.net/) # Probably something like the proprietary windows program, but with a less annoying interface. * Ruby/Qt frontend to current the current CLI program? * C++/Qt interface directly in the codebase?
Port Qtel/svxlink to Maemo/MeeGo for Echolink capability on the n900 * Requires porting (or polishing a port) from Qt3 to Qt4 * Hildonize the interface to make it more finger-friendly * Switch sound stuff over to PulseAudio, if it hasn't already been done
 Other Projects
Finish the rbmoodbar renderer (http://gitorious.org/rbmoodbar) * Make it more robust, remove dirty hacks with brilliant ones * Make an actual .wps file that works with current RockBox versions * Give it a nicer interface - wrapper script to render entire collections' worth of moods - GUI for drag'n'drop sexiness - Amarok integration
Go through the C++/Qt4 book on the bookshelf # I could probably do this one myself, but someone else doing it concurrently would probably keep me more honest about keeping with it.
These are just some ideas. I would welcome comments, suggestions, and, of course, any interest in helping with the above.
