Deepwoods Software is looking for model railroaders who are also
software developers to help out with some aspects of the Model Railroad
System. Specificly what is needed:
People to generally test the system and provide some Q&A, esp. under a
Someone who has a C/C++ and Tcl/Tk build toolchain to build the system
under MacOSX. The code *should* build under MacOSX, but I don't know if
anyone has tried to build it under MacOSX.
Someone who understands libusb-1 and the MS-Windows USB subsystem who
can write the code (scripts, configuration, whatever) needed to launch a
Service Process (eg what would be called a daemon under UNIX) when a USB
device is hot-plugged.
I am working on an interface to NCE's DCC cab bus and will be working on a
LocoNet interface as well. I do have a Lenz XPressNet interface mostly
working and have a working Chubb C/MRI interface working. Also code to
work with Azatrax's MRD units and with PI Engineering's Rail Driver unit.
This would all be unpaid work and would be a few hours every 3-6
months, since the release cycle is fairly slow, with mostly small
incremental changes. The Model Railroad System is a free Open Source
If you are interested, send me an E-Mail.
