I've just started playing Vega Strike and I am really enjoying it. I
played Wing Commander Privateer so this gives me a warm and fuzzy
feeling. I'm also a full time IT guy who has been meaning to beef up
on Python and C++, but I'm not sure that I will be a good fit because
I won't be able to jump in and start coding immediately. I've also
been a user of OSS for a long time and have been wanting to contribute.
I think the ideal way for me to get involved is if I could be
somebody's coding wingman, where they could assign me very small
projects or bug fixes to help me get my feet wet and help me as I go
along. So is there anyone out there who has time and energy to spare
to be something of a mentor?
My resume as it applies:
==Things I know very well==
* OO Programming as it generally applies
* Linux and OS X from the user and system administrator perspectives
(not much from the C/C++/ObjC development perspective)
* debianizing packages
==Things I have limited experience with but would like to expand on==
* python (I have only written a couple production scripts)
* C++. I understand the basics but don't have much experience with
memory management, pointers, the STL - in short many of the things
which people need to be proficient.
Let me know if I might be of assistance,
