Easy TODO list for people wanting to contribute

Post by pfalcon » Fri Jun 26, 2015 11:34 am

It's not exactly a FAQ yet, but question asked more than once for sure - how interested people may start helping/contribute to MicroPython development? We now even had confusion cases when people started to implement things which were already implemented.

To avoid such cases and give people guidelines for easy yet useful start, there's now a ticket listing possible TODO items/tasks: https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/1331 .

Still, if you want to start contributing (and we'd love it!), please remember that Open Source is all about cooperation, and thus communication. Don't spend a lot of your time doing something just to discover that someone else doing it already or you're doing it the wrong way. Let other folks know that you're working on something, ask smart question along the line (smart questions are really preferred, for example instead of writing "How to do it?", it's better to write "I have an idea how to do it: 1) ... 2) ... 3)... . Is that a good way?")

Thanks and welcome to MicroPython development!
