Looking for a hobby project! [C++ or Java]

  • Anonymous - 2012-11-04

    Hello, my name is Marius, I am 17 years old, and I am searching for a project to work on.
    I don't want to get involved into a big project, I just want to have something to work on in my spare time.
    My main programming languages are C++ and Java. I consider myself relatively good in both of them, yet I am no expert. I am very good at finding and solving errors (Syntax and logical errors),
    and I am a very good mathematician, too.
    Therefore, I seek to work on a maths related project.
    I am working on Windows apps only, though I have little experience in Linux programming.

    In my past, I have written many programms, including OpenGL applications, GUI applications using Qt, Minecraft Mods and Bukkit Plugins. I too have written my own Assembler-like language in Java, and I have made my own tool to crypt and decrypt files.

    My hobbies include programming small and efficient math tools to perform different operations (for example an app that performs integration, can calculate PI, and many many more). I also like to learn, either maths, something computer related, or languages (I am a fan of languages :) or I just go out and have fun with my friends.
    Gaming is a hobby of mine, too, but I don't like to play alot.

    If you want me in your team, just leave me a message with 1) several details about your project (Is it already relesed, still in beta or hasn't it been released yet? What kind of project is it? Be creative) and 2) information about yourself (Why do you want me? How much coding experience do you have? Again, let your creativity flow :)

    Greetings, Marius!

      Good Morning,
      I am not a programmer but have done some programming work in the old!!! Dbase and used clipper to compile it.

      I now am trying do learn to use PWCT but the learning material is not up to standard and have nobody to contact.

      But am a stamp collector (Philatelist) and have written some programing in Dbase but really need to do a better job of it.

      I have different programmes for different states/times (in Dbase) like RSA, Union of SA etc. I collected a use amount of Data and some of them runs over 1 gig of info.

      I am a pensioner but would like you or someone else to help me right something beter as there are some things I would like to do but do not know how to go about it.

      If you are interested you could contact me at mossiemj@vodamail.co.za

      Hi Marius,

      Would you like to get involved in the Global Soccer Simulator project? It's in the Java language and it actually has quite a lot of maths involved like distributions if you're into that sort of thing. I do with a speaker of a language other than English as well to provide translations, seeming that you are interested in languages.

      As for GSS, the project is in alpha, however it is downloadable and functional. Its primary purpose is to simulate football seasons for amny countires and division (20 nations at the moment and counting...). Since probability plays a big part in such a game, mathematic skills are important. You will also be glad to know that GSS is primarily functional on Windows. For that reason, I think that you would fit in great in this project. Myself, I have 18 month's coding experience in Java (since I first began to learn the language), though at present that is the only language that I have experience in.

      So how about it. If you would like to get involved in GSS, all you have to do is reply to this post.

      Hi, i have some simple maths jobs you could do in C++ if you're interested, in particular some long integer operations (add, subtract etc for say 128 and 256 bit word sizes). Fairly standard algorithms documented in Knuth. These would be integrated into my systems standard library. [The system is a programming language]

      I have a cryptocurrency project chaOS41 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/chaos41/) that needs coding.

      You can only help if you are not in Europe. I can explain.

      I have a lot of detail to disclose about chaOS41, and I hope you reply positive.

      If you are still looking for a project, BBCT is looking for contributors. This is 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 Marius,

    I would be really keen to work with someone who can bring cool, fresh ideas to my project. I want to build a 'Clash of Clans' strategy game / simulator for small business owners to run their businesses better. It requires a mix of many disciplines maths / stats, 3D modelling, turn-based 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.

    I want the game to run on Android, iPhones and Windows, so perhaps we could use Xamarin. You'd be the only developer / designer, I'd do the rest.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, Michael
