Junior Job: KGameRenderer porting
August 6, 2010
All over KDE, you will regularly find “junior jobs”. These are small tasks for those who want to get their hands dirty and contribute to KDE without a long induction period.
Today, I have an offer for a junior job for those who have at least intermediate C++ knowledge. I am looking for people who help me with porting KDE’s games to the new KGameRenderer classes. This basically involves deleting the old rendering code, instantiating a KGameRenderer object, and replacing some QGraphicsItems by KGameRenderedItems. I would do it myself if only there weren’t so much games.
The fun side about game development is that you always have an excuse for playing: “I’m not playing, I’m testing!”
