Ok minimal C skills, check. So if I tutorial and dummy book myself the basics I can help with the (superuberduper) easy stuff?
No need for linux knowledge? That would be great

uhm the exact scale of knowledge is hard to explain...
but it helps when you are able to programm a C program that prints "hello world" without having to look up anything in the net ;)

I am just about as eager to help as I am clueless about writing code, but I am very fast learner and I studied logic syntax quite extensively as a part of my philosophy master so I just need a nudge in the right direction.
Anyone care to link me a few resources for getting started?
(I know that a quick google search is easy, but I tend to OD on information, and sometimes it takes a certain level of knowledge to distinguish good/relevant material from the less good :)

Start here:  http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9517.0

And you should start looking at the source.

Rework NotifyBox
Current state:
The NotifyBox feature is an useful on-screen display to notify the user of some happenings.
Unfortunately its implementation is quite crude, just printing the text on screen, providing not much usability.


Should I consider this done with this commit? https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/d12a423e5f6786524f136cdb5e37660350a68be4/src/notify_box.c?at=NotifyBoxIcon

Any hint how to fix flicker? Temporary stop rendering of other ML GUI?
