Kexi is considered as long awaited MS Access replacement.

Recommended skills:

  • C++ advanced knowledge

Database-related knowledge is not required. Linux/Unix/Mac OS X and MS Windows developers are welcome.

If you're a good C developer, there're jobs regarding to database engines integration (eg. adding multiuser support for SQLite). But C++ is our preferrence because of required code quality.

Mini FAQ:

Q1: I have no Qt skills but I am C++ developer

A1: C++ skills can be useful. One proposal is to look at developer's documentation and see what are you interested in - http://www.kexi-project.org/wiki/wikiview/ .

Q2: Where to start?

A2: Subscribe to mailing list(s), then compile Kexi downladed from Subversion. Then,

There are also C++-only, non-GUI (almost no Qt knowledge required) subprojects like:

  • writing database drivers

We're open to further proposals.
