Combine Ward Directory programs?

Oct 9, 2009 at 1:20 AM

I created a ward photo directory program about five years ago and finally posted it and open-sourced it (on github)

I don't have MS VS or anything to develop .NET so I'm unsure how I could contribute to this project.  I do like the idea of being able to integrate with the ward website.

If you are doing a rewrite, any chance of using a higher-level (freely available language) like python or ruby?  If so, I'd rather scrap my project and combine forces...

I think some of the advantages you could get from using a scripting language:

* faster development

* wider audience for contributers

* better suited for platform independence - windows, mac, and linux probably being the primary targeted platforms.

I did mine in python, but have since found that distribution on windows is easier with ruby than with python.
