Hello, my name is Chris!

I am very interested in more details about "NVIDIA Gamestream in Kodi"
I always thought it would be a great idea to implement game streaming technology into kodi since its main focus has always been streaming media all in one place. I see that the project would involve integrating limelight into the application and that limelight is primarily written in java. I would also assume some C++ knowledge is recommended since that is the primary language of kodi. I currently am working with java and oop practices at my school but I have also worked with C#, python, and C++. I am starting to actually learn C++ in my free time and I should have a good understanding of it by the time summer hits. I have not done much work with open source before mainly because I am just now feeling comfortable with the languages I have learned. I feel like GSOC2015 will be a great experience for me, especially if working on a project for kodi.

If you would like to contact me, please just send me a message and I will respond as soon as possible.

Hi guys, you really need to follow the form rules for posting an idea mentioned in our ideas page. I'm going to go ahead and close this thread so people aren't tempted to keep writing wildly incomplete proposals. Smile
