I am a professional programmer and amateur game developer, and a huge fan of BSG. I saw your trailers and they are jaw-droppingly awesome. I purchased a flight stick just so I could play the BtRL demo, loved it, and I'm hungry for more. I'm working my way through the advanced FRED tutorial in the manual and planning to make a small mission based off the BtRL demo for fun. I'm interested in volunteering for Diaspora over BtRL because it looks way cooler.
I don't have a huge amount of free time due to my day job, but I'd love to put in a few hours on the weekend working on small coding projects or FRED maps if you would like my help.
My main experience is with PHP, Java, and C# but I am looking for an excuse to pick up my C/C++ books again. My specialties are back-end server software, tools, automation, and audio.
I have a degree in sound design and can help out with dialogue processing and SFX creation and editing if necessary (although I'd prefer to do coding or level design.)
I have Mac OS X, Windows 7/XP, and Debian Linux systems available for building and testing on.
I hope we'll have a chance to work together soon.
Either way, good hunting!
