As an aside, if you're good with funding applications and feel like volunteering a little to help us out in that regard, that would be pretty amazing also.

Separately, more in keeping with our servers purpose:

If there are any programmers (language likely unimportant) who have time and interest to help us out with the and/or , please, please reach out to either myself or @witchescauldron.

Initially voluntary (as we all are at the moment) lest we get some project funding.

For anyone who is comfortable programming Java for android, has some time to spare and is interested in helping to fix an app that connects teachers with students, please get in touch.

It's paid, albeit not so much for the time being.

Maybe temporary work, bug-fixing, etc; could be more.

Help if you can - they deserve it

Particularly if in Italy - they're now able to accept 0.5% Italian tax donations.

You will need a rooted phone.
You can use QGroundControl on the phone, or laptop, etc.
And you'll need to be a little comfortable with using a terminal/console.

Any suggestions for improvements, let me know.
