[Kicad-developers] Observation of Exceptional Performance


I would like to take this time to publicly thank Wayne Stambaugh for his
tremendous accomplishments in Kicad in recent months. The search
functionality in EESCHEMA is beautiful, the source code improvements in
terms of readability, structure and logic are wonderful. Hit testing in
EESCHEMA is better.

One of the reasons that Kicad is getting more interest is that when folks
take a look at the source code, they can now see some reason and
understanding in it. Before, I think they were running away scared. That
understanding instills confidence. They can now read English comments,
again Wayne.

It was his initiative that got a coding standards document out the door.

Saying hats off to Waynes efforts or thanks for his efforts, would not be
enough. I say thank you to Wayne for both his efforts and his
*accomplishments*.


Thanks Wayne!

Dick

[Kicad-developers] Observation of Exceptional Performance


Dick,

Wow! I don't know what to say. You are certainly welcome. It has been my
privilege to have the opportunity to contribute to Kicad. I thank you
personally for making that possible. I've always enjoyed working on projects
with knowledgeable people who are passionate about their work. I hope I can
continue find the time to contribute and make a difference.

Most of the changes I have made are not terribly impressive taken individually.
However, over time they add up. I just think in order to take advantage of
some of the new things like your Sweet or Torsten's GAL code, the code base
needs to cleaned up to make those transitions manageable. I will continue to
chip away at that task.

I'm glad to see more developer interest in Kicad and I'm looking forward to
working with our new developers. The future of Kicad certainly looks bright.

Thanks,

Wayne

DickWell, I can say "tremendous accomplishments in Kicad" is an understatement.
Wayne, you have rewritten most of Eeschema.
This work allows developers to add now these new and complex things.

I am sure in next months, users (who cannot always see the advantage to have a
better code) will see the benefit of this hard work.

Once time again, Thanks Wayne.

I believe I was lucky to meet all Kicad contributors, and especially Dick and
Wayne.
Yes, I was (and I am) lucky.

Thank you JP. I appreciate the acknowledgment of my efforts.

> Wayne, you have rewritten most of Eeschema.

There is still just a "bit" more to clean up to do in EESchema before I turn my
attention to PCBNew ;) My next major milestone is to replace the all internal
linked lists with C++ containers in EESchema. Most of the work I've done over
the last few months has been in preparation for that transition.

The feeling is mutual. Thank you for allowing me to contribute to Kicad.
