Recently I read the article about chewing up leaders and spitting them out so to speak. I am not familiar with these particular developers who have decided to exit the community. However I find it distressing that the dedication that they once held to the community is forgotten in the blink of an eye. That out of the way I will now brief the community with my current situation and a few beliefs that have guided me. I am twenty years old with 0 income attempting to earn a name for myself in the software engineering community. Those who would agree with me might say I am a determined perfectionist(those who would not would prefer to call me a stubborn mule). My goal is to create mass production in society through use of flexible easy to use GUI's providing distributed environments to computer users ranging from the personal to the corporation level. In these efforts I hope to gain returns in any or all of the following: Wide Scale Recognition of my Skills Research Contacts Revenue for Continuation of Research(this can take many forms. Cost of living, or scholarship receival from an educational institution.) Some of my requests may be critized, but the work that developing requires is not easy especially for someone with financial pressure such as mine. If you have managed to stick with this entry to this point even if you do not agree with all of my proposals then I will divulge some of the features that my completed OODBMS displays.
Thankyou for your interest
