Bounties

This page is dedicated to bounties we’ve set out for people to accomplish, each bounty will come with a different reward depending on its expected complexity. If you’re interested in any one of these then please get in touch and we’ll add your name below so that others know who’s taken up what.

A few requirements for these; upon completion of a task you will need to provide both the source code (if applicable) and a working example of the result, these will need to be emailed through to the contact@oldtimes-software.com address. Additionally, any work produced for any of these tasks here will explicitly remain your own, we won’t take responsibility for it, but we at least expect you to open-source your work so that others may learn from it and it can be documented.

These will be paid through PayPal, so you may need to set up a PayPal account if you don’t have one already. If you’d like to use another method of payment then just contact us and let us know, we’ll see what we can do.

Feedback for these is obviously appreciated.
