Hi, my name is Ronan. I'm french but i've been living for many years in Germany.
I studied computer sciences in France, back then our software courses were based at first on Java and then on C++. It's been 7 years since I last coded in C++ but I'm sure it's not all forgoten
In my spare time I like to sew and as it's more difficult for men to find nice sewing patterns, I became interested in making my own patterns. A few years ago I bought the book "Metric pattern cutting for menswear" from Winifred Aldrich and started to draw my own patterns.
A few weeks ago I discovered Valentina as I got interested in making the pattern directly on the computer. And what can I say ... I'm thrilled by this project, you have done awesome work and I'm sure a great future lies ahead of this software!
My view of pattern making is thus from the DIY side more than from the industrial side.
I'm new to contributing to open source projects, but I'll do my best to help.
