I would like to. Though I'm rather busy through mid-October.

But as for experience:
2 years programming experience (self taught)
7 years of working with a variety of data (Excel, SPSS) in the market research field

Work in C# daily producing user-facing applications. Mostly handling parsing of various human readable data formats and putting them into other human readable formats.

Other languages: Python (backend webdev and user applications), JavaScript (frontend webdev), VBA (gross, I know), and Haskell (a little bit, love functional programming). I dabble in other mainstream and esoteric languages but don't feel they're worth mentioning as my experience with them is little.

I've got a couple year old personal projects (http://savefor.it and https://github.com/pyskell/slouchy) though these aren't exactly indicative of my current skill level.

I'm most interested in improving the Mist wallet but happy to help close issues wherever I think I can help.

Hi all! Wanted to briefly introduce myself and get involved with ETC. @arvicco was kind enough to already invite me to Slack and the GitHub organization.

I am an application developer with a strong front-end background. I'm pretty much brand new to learning about blockchain and Ethereum. But after reading about the Hard Fork, ETC seems like a vital component to keep this technology headed in the right direction.

Key Skills:

  • JavaScript (including ES6 standards)
  • Node.js
  • Branding
  • Graphic Design
  • Very Fast Learner

Hello everyone, I hope I did not miss too much.

My development laptop had a HD crash. I then built my own version of QubesOS based on Debian and KVM/Qemu. It is now finished and I can safely build and compartmentalize all my development projects.

I will be trying to catch up and see where I can contribute.

Hope everyone has been doing well.

I build a Go project called oht, its an onion routed distributed hash table (https://github.com/onionNet/oht). Isis from the Tor project built a similar setup into Bitcoin a few months ago. Would you be interested in this feature being added to Ethereum Classic?

I took parts originally from geth to save time but I had to redesign everything. After learning more about Go I came to the conclusion that the design pattern of geth was completely wrong. It failed to take advantage of essentially all the most useful primitives in Go.

What I have on github, while incomplete would fit into the current geth and provide the exact same feature set provided by Isis' changes to Bitcoin.

You don't need to invite me, I can just do it and make a pull request.

Months ago I fixed code in geth involving using the wrong data types but the programmers on the project never accepted the pull request. They were using a uint for a port number variable, and port numbers are never negative. They then converted the uints back to int for no reason. There are a lot of portions of the geth code like this, where geth wastes resources because the programmers are doing things entirely wrong and not thinking through what the code is doing. The programmers seem to be subscribed to a whatever works approach, which for my project oht is not acceptable.

@lostinblue that's very interesting. Security of the network is one of our next goals, after fixing all current issues. And seems that OHT project can be very helpful.
Also, we'll be very happy if you'll join Classic Geth development, there're many other things that I believe you can help us with. Please contact us on slack/gitter if you're interested

Hey,

I feel a bit late to the party as all these posts are from 6 months ago but I'd love to get involved. I've been working full-time as a full-stack .NET/ C# developer for ~2.5 years, with React/Redux on the frontend.

Outside of that have had a heap of side-projects in a few languages + frameworks including Meteor, Node, Grails - the most successful being bestbans.com which provides stats for League of Legends gamers.

My 'stack' may not be immediately compatible but I'm confident I can pick up whatever is needed fairly quickly...

I think the ideal behind ETH classic is very important and would love to hear if there's any area where you think I could get involved straight away.

Cheers,
Jordan

Hi Jordan! We'll be happy to have you in our community.

I think you can help us with Meteor, there're few issues in Mist, for example @ethereumproject/mist#44. Basically sometimes it fails to unpack a zip file with geth and produces 0-length binary

And there many other places where you experience could be useful, for example @ethereumproject/emerald-wallet Let's discuss in Slack

Great to hear, @pompomJuice! You may want to get in touch with @splix to discuss where you contribution may be most useful in existing ETC projects. Or you can start your own project any time - ETC is a permissionless infrastructure.

Hello,

I want to volunteer in the development of ETC. One reason why I want to volunteer is because I'm (with my team) currently developing dApps in Ethereum Classic platform. The second reason is, I want to improve the platform and help speed up the development. I'm a C++ developer, but can do Go and Rust. Cheers.

Hey @ffimnsr! Would be happy to help you get started if you're leaning toward ethereumproject/go-ethereum -- the easiest way to get ahold of me directly will be through the ETC Slack group, best via direct message or #development channel. Otherwise feel free to find or create an issue on the repo that looks interesting to you!

Skill Set
-Data Research & Analysis
-Marketing & Organizing
-Content Creating & Explanations

Im great at interpreting ECIP's for End-Users, by creating a more layman style approach to explaining things. I would like the opportunity to express my choices on hard forks and other issues regarding ETC. Thanks for the Consideration!

Hi all! Wanted to briefly introduce myself and get involved with ETC.

I am experienced Python developer, with expertise in data technologies. I am a good with analytical technologies like data analysis, business intelligence, data mining, data engineering, database management with a wide variety of tools and environments.
I have experience with testing as well, manual as well as automated with selenium in Java.
I'm pretty much brand new to learning about blockchain and Ethereum. I believe this field is growing and there's a lot to learn, so I would like to be involved by contributing with my skills. I am here to learn.

Hi @ashish27kulkarni, thank you for you support of ETC!

With your background I think you will be interested in https://github.com/ethereumproject/ecip1017test, which can grow into a full featured testing tool for ETC. It uses Python to automate cluster managements and analyse of current state. Currently just for ECIP-1017, but as I mentioned, it can be used for other projects.

Also, we'd like to launch a new project for blockchain analytics. We want to build a set of tools to export blockchain state, and later analyse it with Spark, Python and R. Make reports, etc. This project is not started yet, but if you have interest and have experience of starting such type of projects from scratch, we'll appreciate if you help us with it.

If you're interested in learning other technologies, you can take a look at https://github.com/ethereumproject/go-ethereum which is written in Go

Please join our Slack http://ethereumclassic.herokuapp.com/ or Gitter chats (you can find links per project README). Feel free to contact me via splix@etcdevteam.com

Hello team! My name is Vinícius and I want to introduce myself:

I'm currently a front-end developer with a lot of experience with javascript projects but looking to learn new technologies and get deep into blockchain development. Currently I contribute & help maintaining catarse, an open-source crowdfunding platform.

I really want to make a big impact on our society through code, and this is the main reason why I started looking for ways of doing it. The Crypto-Decentralist Manifesto resonated well with my beliefs, and this is the reason I'm here.

I couldn't join the project Slack, as it seems that the invitations limit was reached.

Hi Vinícius. Thank you for your interest in ETC. For you as a front-end developer, there're couple of project that could be interesting, such as https://github.com/ethereumproject/emerald-wallet (also emerald-js) and https://github.com/ethereumproject/TokenMint

Slack signup doesn't work anymore unfortunately, we actually started to move to Discord, because of this and other issues with Slack. There is a link https://discord.gg/ps8TVRq Also we have Gitter for Emerald project https://gitter.im/orgs/ethereumproject/rooms

Hello, My name is Vaibhav. I want to get involved with ETC and help in any way I can.

Currently, I am a third year computer science student at University of Waterloo. I am great with C++, C#. Python and Ruby on Rails. I really want to expand my knowledge about blockchain and want to learn how to develop apps using the blockchain. I believe this would be a good open source project that I could contribute to.

Let me know if I can help in any way or if you have any questions.

Hey @vicnicius! Great to have you here. Sorry to hear that Slack isn't working. Here's a link to the Discord invite - https://discord.gg/wpwSGWn.

With your Javascript background you might be interested in Emerald Wallet and/or emerald-js.

Otherwise, please feel free to browse any and all projects under the ethereumproject/ namespace; you're more than welcome to dive in with anything that gets your interest.

Hi @Vaibhav. Thank your interest in ETC, I'm sure you can help us with development. We mostly use Go, Rust and Javascript. Sometimes Python, but not so much. I think most easy to start would be Emerald Wallet and/or emerald-js, because you can also learn how to develop daaps on top of ETC. And take a look at other projects and join Discord chat if you have questions https://discord.gg/ps8TVRq

Hi,
I'm a UX grad (degree level), so my knowledge base is UX research/usability/UI design... Coding was also compulsory at my school so I was also exposed to HTML, CSS, JScript & Java.

Happy to help out on website re-build or any other projects.

BobcatBilly commented May 8, 2018

Hello! I'm Bobcat.

I'm here because @classiciscoming dropped the link on my twitter and I like what you all are doing.
Is there a separate thread for non-dev volunteers?

My professional background is primarily focused on supply chain and production management, and I hold a BBA. I am a military veteran and my management experience was with a large defense contractor.

Ancillary tasks that I may be able to help with are varied:
Proofreading, usability testing, technical and report writing, public speaking and presentations, project management, membership outreach, product education, fundraising, webcasting, social media and customer support.

I am also interested in blogging and creating educational content\experiences that help lay users understand and adopt the toolkit being created. I firmly believe that reaching out and educating the public is critical work.

My coding experience is shamefully limited (I used to use HTML to make my text < blink >) but I can set about learning Go or another language as needed.

Hi,

I'm Tomek from Poland. I believe on ETC because of "immutability", and the real Ethereum is ETC! I'm a programmer and organizer of https://www.meetup.com/Silesia-Blockchain-Meetup/.

The technologies stack used in my professional life includes:

  • JavaScript (ES6)
  • SCSS
  • Node server and "frontend world"
  • Solidity
  • HTML5

I just started solving issue in https://github.com/ETCDEVTeam/emerald-wallet/.

I have a connection with Silesian University of Technology (https://www.polsl.pl/) and I am interested in partnership with ETC from frontend site. I want to also organize Meetup on ETC Project - if someone from ETC can help, let me know. I have created https://codechain.pl/ which will be a spot for "signal" in crypto world and if you see any need of writing tutorial on some subject also let me know.

Let's rock!
