Hi guys,

For Thibault:

I live near Compiégne in Oise (in Picardie). My school is the UTC (Université de Technologie de Compiégne).

I would like to work mainly on improving the user interface : By incremental updates and templates creation.
But I can work on anything, my goal is to really improve the LimeSurvey I know: A tool with lot of potential but missing user-friendly features and a nice interface.

As programming experience, It's always difficult to sum it up for me, but here is some things I did on the past few years:
Here it is, wow, when I look back, I never realized I did so many things!

For the bug tracker, I reported a bug yesterday : http://bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=6946 . Provided a quick fix but It need some tweaks. I realized also that my report can seem a lot pedantic.

For Marcel:

I try to be most of the time on #limesurvey, this is a very quiet place compared to the forum. My nick is "damien_m".

For the GSoC, I would like to apply for the 2013 edition (next summer), so I hope LimeSurvey is selected as mentor organisation. (It would be awesome).
I will try to do the tasks list on the GSoC 2012 page you linked on my free time. Thanks for the link.

Next week will be a really busy week for me, I think you will all only have some news of my progress on next Week-end. Sorry.

Damien

Hi Damien,

thanks for getting in touch with us. As nearly every Open Source software we only have some very limited human resources so every helping hand is needed. From my point as Head of Support at Limesurvey I think that you can give some very valuable help at our forums, even when being new to Limesurvey because most questions are pretty basic. And don't fear to help at the english forums as well, your English is very good.
Maybe you can connect to our IRC as well (http://www.limesurvey.org/en/community-services/live-chat) to help others and get in touch with other team members there (my IRC nick is "Mazi") as well?!

Our manual also needs some polishing. Unfortunately, we were not picked at this years Google Code in contest, so all the work listed here http://docs.limesurvey.org/LimeSurvey+Project+Ideas+for+Google+Code-in+2012 will not be done by any students and the core team doesn't have sufficient resources (we do all this in our free time).

The list linked above also lists some simple coding tasks, so if anything of that sounds interesting to you, please get in touch with us on IRC or by using the developer mailing list so we can guide you and discuss how to proceed.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm looking forward to our first virtual meeting.

Have a great day,
Marcel Minke
(Limesurvey Head of Support)

Hello,

I'm writing this email to join the dev team.

So, who I am ?

      I'm 20 and I'm a French engineer student living near Paris. It's my second year in school and I will study embedded systems engineering during the next 3 years. I created my own company ( a very small general programming / design company) which help me to earn a few bucks each months.

     How I discovered LimeSurvey ? So, as extra-activities outside my school, I do programming. And one day, a client asked me a really custom and hard survey. It's when I discovered LimeSurvey. It really helped me and now I really enjoy LimeSurvey : So many features and use cases, I'm always impressed when I see all this awesome work.

     As side project, I builded/conceived a 3D printer, a quadricopter, a electronic drum, a workshop for the students, programmed a lot (Arduino, Android, Web, ..), ....

     I would like to join the team because:
  • I use this software for work project now
  • I really enjoy the open-source way of creating software
  • I think there is many things I can do for this software to be better
  • I would like to improve coding skills
Here are the main things that comes in mind. So I would like to mainly do coding but also support on forums (but when i will really know LimeSurvey).

I'm also thinking to participate to GSoC, but It's just an idea for now, maybe not in 2013, I don't know.

So, here it is, let me know what do you think of this.

PS: Sorry for english, I'm not really good at it
