Re: Bounty for complete EV3 C/C++ API

My years of project experience with fuzzy requirements, unclear deadlines and possibly conflicting interests have taught me many a wise lesson. I am just trying to make sure that whoever decided to make a go of this, knows what they're getting themselves into. Things have a tendency to go funny when...

Re: Bounty for complete EV3 C/C++ API

The risks for the developer are very large: Without some kind of escrow system in place, there is no guarantee for the money in the end. What if 80% of the requirements are covered, does that still mean nothing is transferred to the developer? The specifications are not SMART , this will inevitably ...

Re: The Art Creator

I like it, reminds me of the spyrograph toys we used to have as kids.

For your next version, make it do all the human parts in a random way and see what comes out!

Re: Bounty for complete EV3 C/C++ API

Do you realise how much work this is? Considering the average wage for a senior programmer in the EU is around 70 euro, this is less than 3 hours' worth of wage for more than a few months' full time work. You have commercial requirements but are unwilling to pay for them, good luck finding a someone...

Re: Is this forum dying and is that a bad thing?

Would it be considered spam to drop hints in Facebook about Mindsensors? No, it's about helping people and if people can get better help there, then by all means.

Re: there are some problems about ev3 use USB hub

My guess is that you are drawing too much power from your EV3's USB port. Do you get the same issue with a powered USB hub?
