What skills required to help develop simutrans?
« on: September 07, 2009, 02:52:58 PM »
Hi Guys

I've been a simutrans player for some years, started back on version 86.x I think. I've been a software engineer for a lot longer and I was wondering about contributing some code. Most of my career has been working with databases and I've not done any raw code hacking for a good while so I was wondering what skills are you looking for in contributors? I tried to checkout the source to take a look at it; but I needed a username / pw to get at it.

Cheers

David

Several references about the issue:



Btw, to contribute with code, you at least need to know some programming, specially C++.
