thank you for the encouragement. My dream is to become proficient in small-scale industrial applications. For example, I would like to build a kitchen countertop food processor to process larger batches of fruits, pour them in (recycled) glasses in a protected sterile atmosphere, and seal them. Basically it would be a canning machine for the lazy :).
For now I want to apply my c++ skills.
The contribution guidelines are great, especially regarding coding style.
I'll have a look at the issues.
