    Learn crypto-currency / software development : Project 1.

    Feathercoin - Software automatic Testing and QA

    Feathercoin is a community project. Feathercoin “Staff / Admin” have a wide range of high level experience in many areas as well as developing, building and releasing Feathercoin and are willing to help.

    The Feathercoin development team require assistance to independently document a set of tests for FTC specific add-ons and features and investigate and document a set of high priority automatic Quality Assurance (Q.A.) tests. (Probably using OpenSuse open Q.A.)

    This level of work would make an ideal student level project or bring on a hobbiest or potential “programmer” to aspects of software development of crypto-currency.

    Obviously, the hope is “students” would continue to support FTC occasionally, training or helping others get into crypto, but that is not essential. Documenting and posting what you have learned will help bring other members up to speed on the detail of technical developments so we can expand the team further.

    Possible technologies involved : Cherry Pick, Boltron, Github, Build service

    I’d like to know more about this. I am often programming in C++, but cryptos aren’t my field of expertise, except for optimizing mining algorithms perhaps, which I haven’t tried yet.
    I could spend some time this summer working on ftc and cryptos in general.

    Do you have any public or opensource C++ projects we can look at ?

    Thanks for the interest. Another thing you might try is building feathercoin, or get up to speed / sign on to Github.

    https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin

    We have an issue you could look at as a way of getting set-up :

    It would involve setting up a solo miner, checking through debug logs, finding relevant code sections or commits on github and posting / discussing findings with other devs on the forum.

    No, my projects were mostly related to singal processing. From open projects I worked on this:
    https://github.com/TrinityCore/TrinityCore
    It is not my project, it’s just full of minor bugs that I was fixing for some game server.
    I am at some image processing summer school atm, after I’m done with it in ~10 days, I’ll see what i can do here.
