Hi, 

Interesting and promising project. 
I have some experience in Qt development, is there a GitHub or something for the project ?

> Once these basics are running, I'm planning to have some sort of Event

> This would allow the User to examine and test code and packet exchanges

> Since I have some free time at the moment and motivation to complete
> this project I'd welcome collaborators from RIOT to complete some of the
> project.

> Any comments / interest ?
