I'm a fresh graduate in Computer Science and Management (Lisbon/Portugal) currently looking for an open source project to contribute, improve my skills and of course, giving a helping hand to someone.
I've never worked in an Open Source project before. The experience that I have is based on Uni projects.
My github account (Java 2SE 1.6 project): https://github.com/JoaoBarreto/TribesPCDEdition/
- Multiplayer game (client-server) via Sockets;
- GUI: Swing;
- Team size: 2 developers;
- CMS: Back then (2011/2012) we used SVN;
- Software used: Eclipse IDE (coding), Paint Shop Pro (Graphics editing), Acoustica MP3 Audio Mixer (sound editing)
- Project Grade: 19 (0/20 scale)
I know other languages like C# or C, but I feel that I can be more useful with Java right now.

Dimitry (Freeplane team)
Hi Dimitry! Seems interesting and I think it fits my current knowledge.
It would be awesome if you could pin point me the way so I can give my contribution to Freeplane!
you are welcome. I would recommend that you start with following:
Register at our developer mailing list http://freeplane-developer.996965.n3.nabble.com to have a place to ask any development related questions and get support from the rest of the team,
Goto https://github.com/freeplane/freeplane , fork the project on the github (you need a free github account for that). If you are not familiar with git yet you can get info at http://freeplane.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Git_howto and many other places as well.
Create your local github repository, compile Freeplane from the source code and afterwards run it in Eclipse as explained at http://freeplane.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Setup_Eclipse_for_coding .
Let us discuss what feature you want to develop on the developer list or in the forum http://www.freeplane.org/forum . I have recently written a summary of user requests which seem to be the most relevant for me at http://freeplane-developer.996965.n3.nabble.com/Features-for-Freeplane-1-4-x-td375.html#a379 . However in our project every developer sets his own priorities.
Hi Dimitry! I am also interested to join the FreePlane project. I am pursuing my PhD in Computer Science (Software Engineering). My research focuses on Software Evolution. I have strong knowledge and background in Software Development life cycle and I have worked in the industry for about 3 years before I start my PhD. I want to improve my programming skill and am always passionate about software problem solving. That's why I want to contribute to your project which I found its application interesting to me.
I am glad you are interested to join us. I would be great if you could follow my recommendations from the above post.
Not Java... But...
Care about privacy / anonymity on the internet?
Check out the Whonix project!
We're eager to get new devs!
