@fernandolins@mastodon.cloud avatar

I would like to help an open-source project with UI design and UX design. I have over 18 years of experience in the field and have worked with desktop and mobile software on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile/Windows Phone. Unfortunately my knowledge of Linux is very limited but I'm eager to learn. Could you help me find a project? @thelinuxEXP @linux @macrumors @windowscentral @windows

@coolmojo thanks, I'll check it out!

@gary_host_laptop I am reading up on it right now! Are you part of it?

@vhstape Hey VHS, unfortunately I don't have any experience with the technical side of development and deployment of software, I only know how it works at a high level. Unfortunately I have seen a lot of projects suffering with QT in the last few years so I hope you can move your project to another UI framework or find a solution to your problem.

@vhstape I've heard good things about NITISA and JUCE, although I have no personal experience developing with them, I only created icons and GUI graphics for companies using them (mostly for VST audio plug-ins)

@JustEnoughDucks thanks for pointing that project out, my husband is a heavy CAD user so he could help test it too. I'll look into it, see how I could help.

@makeasnek That sounds really interesting, I'll read up on it. I don't know any C, C++ or Java/Flutter/Android stuff, all I can help with is providing mockups, high fidelity specs and prototypes for the screens. I am working on learning how to use more dev tools.

@jackpot Thank you very much for the list, I'll investigate them

@Sarcasmo220 I'm a little worried if I should take your advice since your username is Sarcasmo ;) Thanks I'll look into it

@lps That's very cool, I didn't know about that one. Thank you for the suggestion.

@makeasnek I understand, I'll do my best to learn the things that are necessary to actually help. I see that it is possible to make skins for the BOINC Manager app, seems like a good way to get acquainted with the features and GUI. Is there a C/C++ UI framework or IDE that you believe I should learn first?

@Piers Yeah, I did not know what Lemmy was, thought It was some random instance. Very much a newb at FOSS. Embarrassed

fernandolins OP ,
@fernandolins@mastodon.cloud avatar

@Piers that is very confusing and I did think lemmy.ml and mastodon.cloud were the official instances. I guess this makes it really easy for someone to host an instance pretending to be a company/project that it is not?
