LJUG Project: call for proposals

As mentioned in the writeup for last meeting, we are proposing to do a software project as an activity for the JUG. A good project might:
  • have opportunities for newbies and experienced programmers
  • be useful or fun (or both)
  • not too small to be trivial ("Hello World")
  • ... and not too big to get bogged down (new Operating System)
  • have scope to work on a smartphone/PDA
  • have scope to have some sort of Database/Web backend (for example to share and collaborate)
(any more thoughts?) A successful and interesting project will be a nice way to raise our profile, develop our skills, and have a bit of fun at the same time. We can also tailor our next meetings (talks, workshops etc.) to specific areas of expertise needed for the project. Please feel free to send in a proposal: this could be
  • some sketchy ideas
  • an abandoned project with some documentation or skeleton code
  • a formal project brief
and do pass this on to anyone you think might be interested in getting involved in this sort of project. Depending on the speed of response, we might be able to decide on a project at our next meeting on Wed Feb 18th. Let us know what you think by commenting here, or posting to the discussion list.
