Looking for help in porting Cocoa/ObjC/OSX app to Windows/C++/Qt

  • I need more manpower in porting my app from Cocoa/ObjC/OSX to Windows/C++/Qt. The resulting codebase would eventually become the shared codebase between the two platforms.

    Work has already started but there is at least 3 months of solid full time work left plus some part time work after that. Remote work is fine, we already use Git, Travis, Slack & Trello to organize and communicate. As the original developer on the project I would be involved in the port but it would not be my main focus during that time.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should maybe describe a bit your project or at least the skill set needed to work on it.

  • Hi. Can you explain the kind of the app to port (game, ...)? If you want you can send me more info at I'm a specialist on cross development with Qt.

  • Of course. The project is a desktop app which allows DJs to organize their music collections and sync the results between different DJ programs.

    Think iTunes, but for DJs.

  • Where are you located and which is your timezone?

  • @Didier-Malenfant I am an expert in Qt for desktop and mobile (and embedded even) platforms and have extensive iOS Cocoa/ObjC/OSX and Android (Java) experience so I can certainly help you with this project.
    I use Git and SVN and many communications/organization tools since I have been working remotely for people for over 20 years. I am free up to 36 hours per week (I do have other clients). I am a US Citizen and have a corporation so we can do this C2C very easily. I look forward to working with you.
    Some years ago I worked on a similar project to what you describe for Stanford University and MediaVision along with developing waveguide based synthesis technology (first commonplace)
