As an earlier commenter hinted at, I would suggest trawling GitHub for any C/C++ projects that have tags matching one or more of your personal interests. Find projects that need support rather then just 'throwaway' projects and ask to get involved.
Just my 2c.
So the idea is to develop a platform where both candidates and companies can evaluate each other over a longer duration in the "online virtual work environment" setting rather than an artificially designed/borrowed few hours interview process. The project is basically a "show, don't just tell" approach to understanding both the candidate and the company over a period before either the candidate or the company approaches with a proposal to move to the next step.
Anyone interested in this idea? You will find my email on my HN profile page if you want to brainstorm this idea and work together.
- key/value storage system like LevelDB but less complex
- Infrastructure monitoring tool. Collect basic data. Something like datadog, but simplified of course
- terminal text editor, w/ ncurses for development ease
- A cross platform lightweight PDF reader, maybe using mupdf as a backend.
Nothing set in stone. Hence I mentioned about bouncing ideas in my original post.

I do not have a github account.
