Hi,

No ideas are off the table, but realize anything you want to enact should be sustainable, and will likely be spearheaded by you, unless someone else is wanting to join the effort.

What is the impact of Kotlin, how does that improve the existing code base?

Thanks!

Andrew

Would you consider some tactical changes? Maybe some code conversions to Kotlin? Straight up java I dont have a taste for, but modernizing and improving,?? I might be convinced.??

PCGen like all volunteer projects needs new blood. We have a robust data team (not that we couldn't use more grant you), the PR Team seems on top of things (mainly me), but our Java code team has been slowly shrinking due to attrition because of RL. We are desperately in need of some new coders that are looking to learn Java (not Javascript, the code team quite firmly corrected my ignorance) or java coders that are looking for a new pet project. If we don't get a more active code team, like all volunteer projects PCGen will ill slowly cease to be due to complete volunteer attrition.

If you are interested reply here on this post, shoot me an email, or on twitter, or on FB, or jump into our discord channel.
