Re: New here !




I'm not so good at C++, I've never write code in C++, only C.
But I think I can do what I need, but, I think big features is very
important, but kicad is already powerfuul, I think its just need a good
comunication, public image. I think a beautiful and simple website is
important, I know KiCad leader is french but I've don't see any french
kicad book… 

I think I can be more "gainful" other than writting line
of code…

are you at C++ ? , may be you could try contributing to the software
itself. Find a feature you'd like to see on KiCad,

start a branch, follow the guidelines, and then ask for merge on testing

I'm new here, and I'll introduce myself. I'm french, and I've created a
lot of free projects like OpenSourceSoft - http://opensourcesoft.fr.nf
[1] - and other, mainly listed in my personal website. 
>> As 2013
will be a new year, I'll try to stop creating open source project alone
but I want to participate in usefull big projects, like Kicad. I'm also
an electronics student and I want to create some fun PCB over my Linux
Laptop but Cadence PSD isn't free and doesn't work. 
>> So, I'll try
you to create this really big project, wich is already powerfull. I
don't know if you need that but I think the website can be reorganised,
without using a lot of external tools as launchpad, libs, chat…
CodingTeam is a good soft wich include wiki, source repository, xmpp
server, bug tracking tool, localisation tool, forum…

all, and sorry for my bad english.
