(Please think about non-English readers! Thanks.)

You can go to http://sourceforge.net and create yourself a login. Then you may complete your profile with what you know, and a search is available, to find projects that are in need of people that know what you know. Select projects you like among those, and contact the projects' administrators.
It's a nice move you do! Very great! I hope you'll find the perfect project for you.

Yves.

I went to sourceforge.net and created a login and searched for projects already.I listed some projects and mailed project admins also.but the problem is most of them are not active and if they are active there is no reply from project admins and if reply exist those are very big projects and need through understanding and participation from beginning.
So,I am waiting for some members here who are doing not so big projects and ready to join me into their team.

waiting for ur reply,

Well, you may try with an alternative to sourceforge... I think there is "savanah", or something like that.

below is a link to a project that is looking for more coders , it's a posting in LQ general forum itself , i think it's a game project and they are in an early stage i think so , check it out if you are interested :
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...82#post1593482

you can also try sourceforge , savanah and berilOS if you care to spend some time to search around in them.

Most teams don't ask for volunteers. Instead of looking for a project that is recruiting you should look for a project that you are interested in working on. Then write some code to improve the project and submit it for inclusion in the project. If your contribution is accepted you are on the project team.

Open Source is a meritocracy. People don't look at resumes. If you do good work you are "in". If you produce garbage you are ignored.

Hi coolguy_iiit,

" I know many languages (i mean syntax) but the problem is I practised only the code in that textbook i read from.I never coded any general algorithms and didn't do any projects.I want to become a good coder like u all. so, i want some problems to code with their source codes so that i can refer in case of any doubt."

"I am interested in doing open source projects.but i am alone."

"I don't know much but i can learn whatever is required as fast as possible."

Good, you sound like me! I'm also a self-trained programmer entirely from books and websites. At the moment I am working on getting a small but ambitious A-life program off the ground partly because I'm interested in artificial intelligence/artificial life and want to start working in that area but mostly (at this stage) because I've never worked on any serious programming projects before and want to put my knowledge to the test. The project is currently written in C, mainly so that I can learn that language, but my brain is OOP-wired so I may at some point re-write it in C++. It hasn't gotten off the ground yet so no promises at this stage but **hopefully** I can get version 0.0.1 ready for release within the next week (the program is fully coded but I'm running into some baffling crashes which I need to debug before I can release it). Keep an eye out on my website http://www.meicos.org.uk, if it shows anything other than the default " THIS DOMAIN NAME HAS JUST BEEN REGISTERED" page then that means that it has finally started.

"I am intereseted in networks and graphics."

Great, because I'm not. The project at the moment is a simple, but designed to be easily expanded, ecosystem simulator. Foxes eat rabbits eat grass. If there is a lot of grass then the rabbits have a lot of food so they multiply and eat all the grass so the foxes have a lot of food so they multiply and eat all the rabbits so the food supply goes down so they all die out and... get the idea? I tried to code a graphics engine in Allegro but gave up so all you see right now is a basic, text-based screen using the Ncurses library. Perhaps you would like to work on the graphics side of things while I concentrate on the engine and, eventually, the AI. Don't bother starting on it yet, I haven't gotten anything going so far and my time and abilities are limited but keep an eye out on the site mentioned above, hopefully within the next 1-2 weeks, I could do with the help!

I look forward to working with you.

"which graphics library is to be used ?"

Up to you really! Ideally what I'd want is a simple, 2-D, sprite-based engine that I can send messages to without having to worry about the implemention. I prefer to concentrate on getting the core engine functioning fully so that it can be easily upgraded and expanded to, and then moving onto AI coding. I would send messages like "remove grass at (10, 34)", or "draw rabbit at (45,10)", or "move rabbit at (4, 23) up 2", etc. But as I said, please don't commit yourself to it yet, Ver. 0.0.1 is "Almost Ready (TM)" but has been that way for about a week and still crashes randomly (I'm actually working on it as I write!). If I can find the error soon I may even be able to release it this weekend, or it could take another few weeks, who knows! As soon as I have something sensible I'll let you know. Also note that the program is interesting rather than useful. I'm playing around with very basic AI concepts (genetic algorithms) while learning C coding with the *idea* of making it into something worthwhile so don't expect anything exciting just yet but if you are in a similiar situation then perhaps we could be mutually beneficial to each other!
