Nasty volunteer 😉

Hello

Not sure what is going on @ your team. It sounds like you can benefit some
assistance. I can't develop yet. Started to use open source in February.

But I can assist in duplicating bug and point the weak spot. Spitting
through those logs etc. Not sure if I stated last sentence right. I am
living in the Netherlands and work in Healthcare. Last month much reading
and having a lot of  trials and errors I made my knowledge improve a lot.
Now realy at ease when using the system.

I can read c++ not write yet. As of yesterday I am investigating in how to
start writing. Found kdevelop handbook and am very happy with it. Tried
almost every version of Ubuntu, simply because I like to experience how the
different editions did defer. I fell in love with kde I like the feel and
vision of the project. Investigated a lot in partitioning in directory
structure. Have learned how to use Konsole  (it does sound so much better
than terminal😉). And also went through configoptions from kernel 4.5.
Havent  mastered them all but now now what to look for.

So a newbie but really willing to help. Don't let the Healthcare background
scare you off maybe I am too unexeperienced but thought I could offer some
assistance to release some of your pressure. No idea if this is how it
should be offered,  if not my apologies and know that i wish you all good
luck and a very swift release  to accomplish.

Kind regards, Eva Bouwman  (renee)
