Future Volunteer Recruitment: Game Development

Recommended Posts

Your Discord tag: cheat117#1466

Applicable skills (see below): Java, C# (junior quality), DevOps Manager IRL - Qualifies me to learn quickly and from experience.

Availability & time zone: Weekends/Weeknights Pacific

Languages and libraries you have experience with: SQL, AWS, Python, Flask, Unity, Javascript, tell me what to learn, I'll learn it.

What you would be interested in working on: Literally anything and everything, small bugs, large bugs, troubleshooting things, testing things, I want in.

 

I know my qualifications seem small here, but I work with over 100 individuals across mulitple timezones and push myself to provide documentation, re-testable cases for troubleshooting and lead my team of 5 to help keep a multi-billion dollar operation moving and clicking. I want more of a challenge and I want to help revive a game I spent so much time with as a kid. Happy to chat and work with an experienced team who wants to make sure the product they distribute is excellent quality and as close to perfect as you can get (good enough works unless there's a show-stopper)

Schroedinger#3329

 

Availability/Time Zone

EST, a few hours a week (between kids and classes and work!)

 

Languages and Libraries:

I am currently a senior year undergrad in CISE at the University of Florida. I know some C++, Java, a little assembly, and I am currently re-learning C. Any opportunity to work on this would give me something new to learn, and I would be grateful for that!

 

Work Interests:

Basically, send me where you need me, I will find it interesting! However, if there is the potential to add a shark and vomit powerset, I really would like to make that! Or anything to improve on graphics. I see this as a learning opportunity on something I am truly passionate about.

 

Applicable Skills:

I am also a skilled writer. I have written and published work on various topics from literary analysis to my own poetry. I can work with GIMP, Blender, and Inkscape. I know physics, as it was my original career intention, and I have done ALL the math courses.

Discord tag: Arcaten#3868

 

Applicable Skills: 
- Decent background in C, but limited C++
- Strong background working in distributed systems
- 7 years using MSSQL, MySQL, git

I'm not a game dev by trade, but I have a decent background in C and 7 years working in distributed systems and web development. That said, I've always wanted to get into game dev and never got a chance. I have demonstrated a knack for being able to dive into large legacy codebases and get ramped up and productive very quickly.

 

Availability & Time Zone: EDT - available early mornings (7-9am) and evenings most days (8pm-12am, excluding Wednesday, Thursday, Friday), can make myself available for almost any time during the weekends.
 

Interested in working on: Literally any aspect of development. Always wanted to get into game dev and CoX has been part of my life since middle school, so this would be an incredible opportunity.  I understand that there is no need for additional volunteers at the moment but I would love to get read-only access to the repository/repositories to be able to familiarize myself and possibly be able to pitch in if/when there's a need.
