Users / Introduction - Use for a UI designer at this time?
« on: November 06, 2009, 09:10:21 pm »

I wasn't sure where one should post an introduction, but this seemed the best place, let me know if I've made a mistake.

I recently became aware of LinuxMCE and recently had the chance to install it. It is (mostly) working, though I'm really just using it for basic home automation at the moment, I don't have any other machines to use outside the core. Though it does seem much more robust than MisterHouse, which I had been using before. I've enjoyed watching the video demonstrations and reading through the wiki, and I was wondering if there was a way I could contribute to the project at this point.

I'm a graphic designer with a few years experience in UI design, though a lot of my work is in identity and brand creation, interactive design is such a great combination of art and science I take the opportunity when I get it. Unfortunately, I'm not very technically capable. The best I can do is html/css and some xml, but I usually work with a developer when creating applications and the more complicated websites. I read the entries in the wiki and watched the videos about how the UI is put together, but I don't have a windows machine, and I think I'd need to actually use Designer to wrap my head around how it works and what it's limitations are.

My question is, can I be of any help, or are non-technical contributions more hindrance than help at this point in the project?
I really like the capabilities of LinuxMCE, and I would love to help improve the user experience. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Thanks for your time!
