Web designer needed

Xibo.org.uk [http://Xibo.org.uk] has been the Xibo project’s home on the web for over 2 years now. When we initially started the project this website was hastily put together and although we did a functional job we feel it is lacking in visual appeal when compared to the sites of other digital signage solutions. It is our intention to refresh the content on the site to showcase Xibo more effectively and hopefully entice more people to start enjoying the benefits of Open Source Digital Signage.

C++ Developer Needed

Work on the Linux (soon to be cross-platform) client continues to progress well. As more people are coming on board and testing the app, it’s become clear that the browser embedding technology (Awesomium – which recently converted from GPL to a closed license) is beginning to hold us back and is causing problems in some areas. Thankfully there is a light at the end of the tunnel in the shape of Berkelium [http://berkelium.org/]. It does a similar job to Awesomium but is BSD licensed and builds
