Dear Future Colleague,
as I ran into difficulties with my existing main programmer for this project (he can't continue!) I am looking for someone who will help me finishing now with all power and strength this *almost finished* win/mac software application which will be some amazing innovational stuff in the field of musical applications. Since, due some legal conditions, I can't talk open about the project (until *you sign the NDA* that is in the ATTACHEMENT!!) I can only tell here a little and very abstractly about it: it is a Win/Mac based desktop application which is meant for musicians who work on a computer based digital music studio environment. I have filed a patent for this idea, which is still pending but at the moment we shouldn't be close anymore from the final approval from the specific head committee. Also all graphic-design, marketing, branding, website/webshop and documentation work etc. is already done so the only thing that needs to be done is finishing the few left tasks and some bugfix and then it can be launched. I am looking for someone who might have the time and consistency for walking along with me this path and might create his own future living from trusting in me and this project. I am willing to give you a good payment and bonuses, any efforts should be refunded in my opinion and if the application will have success I can promise, I will let anyone benefit from it, who has helped making it come alife.
Well, but right now I am investing all my last (my family's private) money to get it done and this is what I will offer to you (!). So if you, who is reading this, might have the skills that are required for this work and do not have any issues with working on something completely unconventional and innovative, which also can be risky and stressful, then please contact me after signing the attached NDA so that I can send you the existing project file to run my last version and make yourself a picture of what I am talking here.
– C/C++/Qt Programmer
– 'proprietary' Database skills
– Win/Mac multi-platform 'Desktop Application' development experience
– durability, responsiveness, stress-resistance, english
All work is done in Qt Creator 3.5.1 (based on 5.5.1) and files are shared trough a chronically (very manual) Dropbox sorting method.
*Tasks to do:*
_(please note: there exists already a user manual and a lot of the missing functions a re very self explanatory and i can provide you all sort of informations on what is needed, in the following you will find only a very overall description of what is need to be done)_
*finishing unfinished dynamic library database (on JSON basis) and connecting existing, already working database modules
*finish some database functions (a few are already done, but there are missing some) which will allow the user to modify the app-specific database by such basic functions as "copy database/list item to another location", "move database/list item to another location", "delete database/list item from database" etc.
*finish some database linking which will warn or indicate some specific database conditions (e.g. if an existing database entry is detected a graphic element will change indicating this)
*limiting the characters of an user entry field in a width-dependent condition, and if those conditions don't match the entered glyphs a notification will be printed: max. 5-6 chars allowed (width-dependant), no SPACE, "A-Z", "a-z" and special chars only ".*?()+/-#0123456789"
*making user modifications in the database and on all user modifiable panels permanent, so they will remain after closing/reopening the application
*restore, import and export database functions
*RollingCredits "hanging" when POWER ON/OFF while opened = a graphical bug
*fix a MIDI issue that occurs only under certain conditions
*renaming some elements (3x)
*some graphical bug fix (BK not latching)
*remove some existing entries list functions in a right-click menu, that won't be needed anymore
*some button bug (won't work correct in a specific case)
*swap some buttons in place (graphical improvements)
*some database bug corrections (some data is not copied along in some cases)
… please see this as a very overall description, there might be some things I have forgotten about, but when you see the application it will be (hopefully) very clear, what the things are that are still not working/missing. So all that is required to do, is finishing this application with me, based on the actual state so that it can be launched then as soon as possible, hopefully already within a few weeks. All the main and serious parts of this application are already finished, it only requires someone who will successfully exit with me the pre-launch era.

PS: There is existing a long 'whishlist' already, so if this application might succeed then we will quite be able to improve some functions to make it better with time …
