Thoughts on open-sourcing qDslrDashboard?

Post by NRedd » 13 Jul 2019, 20:12

I noticed in this old thread some discussion about potentially open-sourcing qDslrDashboard, and would like to restart this conversation. There are many competent programmers out there who both use qDslrDashboard and would enjoy contributing to the project, myself included--I can only imagine how far the community could take it if we worked together :-)

This is, of course, entirely at the discretion of @hubaiz; managing an open-source project is wonderfully time-consuming, and the process of converting an existing project to open-source is itself full of logistical challenges. Either way, consider the possibilities!

DslrDashboard was open source and no one contributed a single line, so why would be different in case of qDslrDashboard?

Well, my schedule is pretty free for the next couple of months and I've been looking for a new side project (in addition to time-lapsing, of course), so I can guarantee that at least one person will spend time on it :)

Just to get an idea, what does the software stack look like? I've played with Android SDK in the past and have quite a bit of Java and C/C++ experience.
