I am interested in the "Lyrics Editor" project. I wish to do this
project as part of Google Summer of Code program provided it is not
delegated to someone else.
I have successfully built MuseScore from scratch and wondering if
there's anything I could do to improve my chances of getting assigned
to this project.
A little bit about myself: I am a master's student at the University
of Edinburgh majoring in computer science. Last year through GSoC, I
have developed one click installer for openSUSE. As a result, I meet
the requirements/skills (C++/Qt) for the lyrics editor as mentioned on
the ideas list.
I hope this will be yet another thrilling learning opportunity.
Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.
> Are you a musician? (Which instrument/voice type?)
Yes, I am. I play piano, and guitar.
> Can you read sheet music and/or guitar tablature?
Unfortunately, I cannot read sheet music and I have a bit of experience with guitar tabs. I am going to take music lessons in the month of May after final exams.
> What are you preferred programming languages? (Thanks for confirming you know C++/Qt!)
C, C++, and Java.
> Which OS do you use?
> Which of MuseScore's projects interest you?
Well, most of the projects require music theory knowledge which I don't posses. So, I'm interested in Lyrics Editor project as it requires less music theory (than the others) and it could be a starting point to get familiar with the code base.
