I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate level on KDE programming. I
just think of KDE-gnucash as an opportunity to learn more and do not expect
to do it immediately. I've been a programmer as a secondary job for 6 years,
mostly scientific programs (using mostly C++ and C, not Fortran) so the
logistic thinking required for programming is already learnt (I hope).
