Hello. I was thinking about creating open developers group which will have real impact on the software improvements or developing some community ideas fr software projects for V (ex. Mentioned Eve V Control Center)
I belive there’s many software developers in the community which can be interested in the developing such ideas.
I understand that some improvements can’t be developed by community members due of NDA etc. But it would be cool if there could be some kind of software projects specific for the V or even open source ones that can work on any Windows device.
From my side I can offer my time to help building software for the V or Eve as company to improve sales or customer support.
I have some development experience, but I’m still a relative newby, having graduated college with a degree in Computer Science just 3 years ago. Honestly haven’t needed to do much in-depth programming since then, but I may be of some help.
I mostly know C++, HTML, and SQL. I’ve used Java, but not comfortable with it, and I’m in the process of learning C# at work right now.
One does not actually need to be a developer in order to help and contribute.
Creating issues in case of bugs, write or maintain docs etc. are all things which oftentimes are overlooked but are crucial for the success of open source projects. In some sense we can see it here with Eve - most of us are not Hardware cracks with an electrical engineering background (e.g. me as a “softy” :)) but at this point I think we can be sure that we had an impact on the product although we never touched a PCB for a V
From my point of view it doesn’t matter how you are experienced as developers I’m pretty sure there will plenty of work to contribute to. @Konstantinos I’ll try to write down contribution guide today. Also I’ll think how to organize ideas/workflow for software developers. My email is email@example.com you can send invite there.
I’m a full time front end we developer with experience in HTML 5, CSS/Sass, JS/TS and many tools/frameworks for that world of development. Haven’t ever really done any local (C#, Java, Swift, etc) or server side development, but I also do a little of the UX/UI stuff @TristanSchaaf referred to. It is an important part of the dev process that is often overlooked.
I’m a full-time software engineer with experience in C++, C#, .net, Azure, Python, and a sprinkling of past experience with Java and a few other “boutique” languages. I’m a back-end guy, but appreciate the front-end as well.
I’ll register for this when I am home and have the right address for my github account!
I suppose we will develop software in C#, C++ , C for some hardware configuration utility because only that will allow us communication between hardware components. Anyway, we can think of some kind of customer web portal which will allow users to contact support, maybe sync CalMAN color profile to be stored in the cloud and some other features, then web developers also would have palce to contribute.
My propsal is to think of some ideas and write that down somewhere. I’ll work on create a palce where all of that stuff can be posted and given to discuss within community developers group. But please don’t rush first we need to make a place where we can work together on that. Github organization is first step, but we have to keep that professional and organized. Thanks!
