Job Description

We are looking for an experienced Python programmer to develop a simple slideshow of pictures based on a XML / RSS feed.

You will need to be familiar with the following technologies:

1. Python
2. GTK / Glib
3. XML / RSS

The goal is to have an application to configure the address of the feed (xml or rss), and retrieve the images provided by the stream to display in a form of slideshow where the images change every 10 seconds with a basic transition.
There are sizing constraints to respect, transitions should be smooth. It should be possible to simply interact with the "left / right" keys to move the images.

We need a developer with whom we can interact online. We prefer to communicate via Skype, in French langage if possible (our english is not fluent).
