How can I contribute as a software engineer?

Post by vitsensei »

Hi all,

I just joined yesterday and have put literally any piece of computation I can find to start folding.
However, I am naturally curious and I love coding. I wonder if I can still continue to contribute somehow as a software engineer?

I am aware that F@H is closed-source.

The client is closed-source (for now), but many components are already open-source:

GPU folding core: Master: https://github.com/openmm/openmm F@H fork: https://github.com/FoldingAtHome/openmm
CPU folding core: https://manual.gromacs.org/current/dev- ... index.html (LGPL)
Desktop GUI and Web GUIs etc: https://github.com/FoldingAtHome

There is also a github for the website and statistics site: https://github.com/FoldingCommunity

There is also discord: http://discord.gg/foldingathome

Online: RTX 3050, GTX 1660 Super, GTX 950 + occasional CPU folding in the cold.
Offline: Radeon HD 7770, GTX 960, GTX 1050 Ti
