Linus Torvalds’ Subsurface planning to switch to Qt

Subsurface, the dive-tracking program written by none other than Linus Torvalds, is considering moving to Qt.

Dirk Hohndel writes on his Google + page:

Looking for experienced +Qt Project developer(s) with an interest in scuba diving…

He then explains that they are considering moving to Qt:

Subsurface is seriously considering a move to Qt but doing so without at least one or two experienced Qt developers as part of the team seems pretty foolish to me. So if you have worked with Qt in the past and are interested in scuba diving (or interested in a new fast moving project to participate in), please drop me a line / comment here.

Subsurface is an open source divelog program that runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. It was started because of a lack of viable divelog software on Linux. It then turned out that the resulting software was fairly easily ported to Windows and Mac and today great effort is put into making it a viable application on all three platforms.

Are you a Qt developer with ‘deep’ interest in ‘diving’ and would like to work on Subsurace? Contact Dirk on this page.
