Employers looking for new staff doesn't mean they don't have them already, but it tells us that they need more.

I'm feeling too young, for once. I would love to work on this, and think I have the required skills, but I'm not even done with my studies yet
Anyway, an open letter to whoever will accept this job : make an awesome integration with XBMC, please.

MayeulCan open letter to whoever will accept this job : make an awesome integration with XBMC, please.

Seconded! I have a very minimal linux install that boots direct to xbmc for my htpc. It obviously controls my media.. it also has all retro emus and a couple of DRM free games that I can launch direct from there. The games requiring steam will be a bit trickier so preferably direct integration so I can easily launch installed steam games right from xbmc without the need to even see steam and the ability to seamlessly switch between xbmc and steam.

Im sure I can manage to make it work in some capacity.. but a plugin for xbmc made specifically for this would be amazing.
