Looking for 2 coders to help with the ARDrone.Net library

It looks like being a full time Dad is going to seriously impact my ability to get the ARDrone.Net library fully functional. I’m therefore looking for a couple of people to take over working on the codebase. We all get an equal share of the cred.

I decided to do it this way rather than release something partially finished to avoid the “he did *this* but it never worked properly” kind of publicity.

If you can work in old-school C, C#, managed/unmanaged code and are comfortable with multi-threading in both scenarios then please drop me a line via my contact page. You’ll probably need to have access to an AR Drone too.

Problems we need to overcome –

  • Taming the massive CPU utilization
  • Migrating the C threading model to a .Net threading model
    (Currently this isn’t working correctly and it would be much cleaner if we could move it all to managed code)

Did you find what you were looking for?
The work is going on?

Stephen Hobley October 26, 2010 at 9:39 am

Yes I did, thanks for asking – I have a couple of people helping out.

When the first returns of the new team?

Hi Stephen, I’m following your progress your progress. I have knowledge of .Net threading. Are you interested in releasing the source for people to work on it or are you doing a closed product?

Hi Matt,

I just wanted some help with the initial release, then it will be public. The reason I only wanted to enlist a couple of people to begin with was to keep things under control. I’ve worked on OpenSource before where there were too many people to begin with and too many branches of the source get created.

Hopefully we’ll have something out there really soon.

I would really be interested in the release once you get it. I wish I had the knowledge to help, but, as yet, do not. I’m definitely in the learning stage!

How can I help you?

Where can I download your latest version of this software.
I’ve been trying to the same thing ever since I’ve got the drone and I haven’t gotten as far as you have.

It’s on Github – I don’t have the url to hand – look for my name or Thomas Endres…
