C++ project wanted

    My name is David. I have been undergoing my undergraduate experience in materials engineering with a computer science minor for the past few years. I am new to sourceforge. I'm looking for a small to medium sized project in C++. Though it is not my major, I have very strong programming skills including object oriented design, big O optimization, debugging with valgrind or GDB, and a passion to make software run as efficiently and secure as possible. I would be most interested in projects focusing on data structures, algorithms, differential equations, and file syncing, but I would be happy to aid any project that has room for an extra dev. I would be willing to learn anything that is needed in order to further my skills as a developer. (especially c# because I've been wanting to learn it recently).

    I could use some help with the newly started project, the P* Web Programming Language.

    P* is a language specially made for web design, with in-language syntax for things like HTML-templates and SQL prepared statements.

    The programs are scripts which are run by the interpreter written in C++11. It can run on the command line, in a CGI environment or by using the provided module for the Apache web server. P* runs on Windows and Linux.

    The basic structure of the interpreter is kind-of finished for now, but there's still lot's of functionality to be written. Among these are time&date-structures, cryptology and file-I/O.

    When it comes to optimization, P* could use some new clever thinking on the expression subsystem, which is a bit slow. All arithmetic operations now requires two or three virtual function calls. This should run faster.

    The project uses GitHub to manage the source code.

    Go have a look on the home page (http://www.p-star.org) or read some code on GitHub (https://github.com/atlesn/P-star).

    I am currently the only developer on this, let me know if this sounds interesting and you want to join in.

    Hi David,

    I'd be interested in having some help for my project (http://threedepict.sourceforge.net). The project is a data analysis and visualisation tool for 3D point clouds. The area is a little niche, I will admit, however the codebase is (I believe) a healthy small-medium sized project, and is written in C++. Most of the interesting work (from your perspective) would be in extending the algorithms for data analysis.

    Lots of work on algorithms is required, particularly for the back-end. If this is interesting for you, just send me an email/pm or post on the project forums!
