We're looking for a few good programmers, C++ hackers who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty.
The Apache OpenOffice project is an international, volunteer-led open source project. We develop Apache OpenOffice (formerly OpenOffice.org) the award-winning office productivity suite, and the code we write is used by tens of millions of users in over 200 countries. Not many open source projects have this reach. Not many commercial products have this reach either.
We have coding tasks, large and small, easy and difficult. Our developers, some with over a decade's experience with OpenOffice, can help you get started. We'd also love to hear what ideas you might want to bring to OpenOffice.
If this sounds interesting and you want to learn more, we have some resources to help you do that:
- Our "Get Involved" page has an overview of our volunteer opportunities. We welcome volunteers in other disciplines as well, QA, documentation, marketing, support, etc.
- Our "New Volunteer Orientation" modules help new volunteers understand how the project works. The "Introduction to Development" module is the key one for coders.
- Questions can be sent to our development mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to hear from you soon!
