Looking for a project [C++, Java, Python, Ruby on Rails or PHP]

    My name is Micah. I live in Atlanta, Georgia. I have my BS in Computer Science and I also have my MCSE. I have thorough experience with Windows and Linux. I am proficient in Java, C++, PHP and VB.NET. I am not a guru in Java, C++, PHP or Ruby on Rails like VB.NET. I have some spare time and I am hoping to find a project to help me learn more about either of those languages.

    I can also wright scripts in languages such as bash, perl, vbs and powershell. In addition, I have experience with MS SQL 2008 and MySQL along with writing stored procedures.

    I am looking for a small to medium project. I have mostly written applications and scripts and I have done some small websites using PHP/MySQL.

    I am interested in mathematics and artificial intelligence.

    Please let me know if you have a project that you believe I would be a great fit for.

      I have started a project that is based on Python using AI, databases, and math. It's called Sea Star. If you can work from specifications, I can spend some time outlining the scope of the project and where I am right now. Here is the page: https://sourceforge.net/projects/seastar/

      Hello Micah.

      I'm working on a Java project implementing the Sokoban game. It includes a solver for automatic solving levels which is a challenging AI problem. It would be great if you could help improving it to be as good as the current best solvers.
      You can find information about Sokoban and my program at: http://www.sokoban-online.de
      The project page is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/jsokoapplet/

      Please contact me: JSoko (at) online.de

      BBCT is looking for contributors for a multi-platform app to track a baseball card collection. Currently the app runs on all desktop platforms and Android. All of the current code base is in Java.

      If you are interested, you should join our mailing list, install the desktop or Android app, and check out the open tickets.

      Feel free to create new tickets for bugs that you find or features that you want to suggest. Also please post to the mailing list if there is an unassigned ticket you would like to tackle.

    Hi Micah,

    I can propose you to have a look at SQLeo Visual Query Builder

    I am working on libQtCassandra which is a C++ library using Qt and that runs against the Cassandra NoSQL database system. I'd be interested in getting unit tests for most everything. I have one for the QCassandraValue class and functions already, but would need many more. It could be good to also make it compile under MS-Windows as it looks like quite a few Cassandra users work under that OS.

    I currently have about 10 SF projects in Bash, HTML, or PHP and will be starting a new one. The project is "MailLite"and is intended as a very small PHP server side compact email reader/sender. I plan to use SqLite for data needs. I have acquired all the needed routines and tested some of them. What is left to do is create a menu and seamlessly integrate the routines together. If you are interested, please contact me at janz@neatinfo.com This will start as a very small project and migrate to a medium sized with time.

    We have a huge code base with lots of interesting challenges and lots of bugs to fix

    Take your pick:

    Mostly Java, with a few C++ stunts if we need to go native (rarely happens)

    Lots of open issues (and even more not entered into the bug tracker)

    To collaborate:

    1. Fork us.
    2. Create a branch for your fix.
    3. Code as best as you possibly can (no code repetition, no "broken windows", no cutting corners), Commit, Push until done.
    4. Submit your Pull Request with the branch you just finished along with a very detailed explanation of what you did and why. If you include tests that's a plus.

    Your code will be used by millions worldwide.

    Team FrostWire

    James, if you're looking for a "bite-size" Python project, take a look at:


    which uses PyEphem to print the rise/set times for the
    Sun/Moon/planets and twilight times, given a longitude, latitude, and

    Two problems:

    • It only works if a rise/set actually occurs on the given day,
      which isn't always the case. For example, the next sunrise in
      Barrow, Alaska occurs in mid-January. The program should scan to
      find the nearest rise/set/twilight times when they don't occur on
      the given day.

    • This bug:


    suggests advancing day by day may be insufficient, and we may need to
    advance a half-day at a time.

    Hi Micah,

    I would be really keen to work with someone who can bring solid programming skills, coupled with mathematics to my project. I want to build a 'Clash of Clans' type strategy game / simulator for small business owners to run their businesses better. It requires a mix of many disciplines maths / statistics, 3D modelling, simulation strategy, multi-players, online secure data, graphics, you name it.

    The theoretical foundation is based on Kim Warren's book Strategic Management Dynamics. This could prove to be a really useful tool for smaller - medium businesses, and who knows -it may revolutionize the way businesses track performance.

    I want the game to run on Android, iPhones and Windows, so perhaps we could use Xamarin. You'd be the only developer / designer, so you would be in a position to build it like you want it. You focus on developing and I'd do the rest.

    I propose many small iterations. I describe the vision step, you design, build and I test. Once we have a MVP we'll release often, rapidly.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
