Dark Room Call for Developers

I have decided that I will converting Dark Room into an open source project. Therefore, I will be looking for some developers to help facilitate development of the project. I will be setting up two projects on github, one for Dark Room Legacy, and one for Dark Room Air.

Dark Room Legacy is the existing version written in C#, I am looking for one developer to take stewardship of it and fix any existing bugs in the code base and make sure that it is working properly across different versions of Windows. This version is currently not intended for new features, but that may change.

Dark Room Air will become the primary version. The existing code is written in flex 3, and I would like to begin porting it to flex 4 immediately as it adds a number of critical features that will dramatically enhance the user experience.

While I wait to see if anyone is interest in working on the project, I will be creating new site dedicated to Dark Room, and will no longer host it as part of my personal site. Additionally, I will be working on a road map, and will likely setup a support forum.

Anyone interested in working on the project should comment on this post with relevant qualifications.

Also, I should note that if I can get a couple of people to focus on the application development, I will be working a paid web service to accompany the program (DR will always be free), so if that works out I will be able to share revenue with DR developers.

  1. I would also be interested in contributing in my spare time. I favor working with c# over flex. I’m also curious about your feature ideas.
