KStars has a mature codebase with well-written C++. Despite the best efforts of the developer community, the sources need a serious modernization because this complex application has long development history (16 years) with many contributors and the testing methods are almost non-existent. The applicant would like to contribute refactoring of the sources with modern C++11/C++14 features (e.g smart pointers), explore and fix corner cases, static code analysis and implementing new testing methods.
