Several years ago I stumbled across Crystal Space and thought it showed excellent progress. Now a bit older and a better programmer, I would like to contribute to Crystal Space's development. I plan to apply for Google's Summer of Code. Typically my summers are spent interning at local businesses writing code, but if accepted into SoC, I could devote full workday to the Crystal Space team every day. Helping to develop a 3D engine would also be a much more interesting summer job and would better suit my career path as a video game developer anyway.
Without taking too much of your time, I would just like to say that I've actively worked on 2D and 3D game and simulation projects throughout the past six-ish years (Zheigenbuerg for example - see below), and I make a great effort to expand my skills daily. I'm going to be using the next few weeks to get familiar with the Crystal Space engine and its underlying code base.
So this post basically a chance for the developers to introduce themselves if they wish to. Thank you all. I look forward to getting to know the team ... don't worry, I'm friendly!
