Get involved in dev team

Post by PICedh » Mon Mar 18, 2013 1:17 pm

Hello,

I will be very exciting to help you to work on the Chipkit world.

I work on IT since 20 years, mainly on financial applications written in C/C++ and I work on Chipkit boards since one year as an hobby.
I have written some piece of code for my robot and several kind of components: motors, encoders, IR sensor, compass, servos, camera, Xbee, TCP and WIFI.

Before, I have also written some code in asm for PIC18F using the MPLAB IDE.

I ‘am not an expert in micro-controller coding but maybe I can review some code and perform testing.

Please note that I’m French so may English isn't fluent.

Waiting for your answer

Eric,

Congratulations. You are now officially a chipKIT developer. As these things typical go you can work what's important to you. If you have free time and don't know what to work on there is a long list of items related to both MPIDE as well as the core cpp code.

If need help getting started post here and I and others will do our best to speed your effort. Most developers work using git and this makes it easy for Rick Anderson to process pull requests to merge withe core.
