Onboarding for a Software Dev is a little more straightforward than for other contributor types, and has some distinct recommendations listed below. We still encourage you to check out our broader Getting Involved guide, our #start-here channel in Discord, and the Community Call on Tuesdays, like anyone.
Step 1: Orient
- Read our Github Contributing Guidelines
- Watch this Code Architecture Walk Through and accompanying diagram.
Step 2: Jump in
- Set up your development environment with the help of this guide and this one. Reach out on Discord for additional help as needed!
- Join the Dev Sprint Planning meeting on Discord (see our calendar for the current schedule). We will help you find a good first task and/or someone to pair with. We also welcome you to drop by our Social Coding sessions on the calender to co-work with us.
