Contributing to Eclipse. Live Hackathon (Part 2)
This second part may be followed by people who want to continue their work started during the first part, or newcomers who could not attend the first session.
Eclipse is an open source project which reflects the work of its community. At their respective level, anyone can contribute without necessarily having to be an advanced developer.
Following an introduction of the different types of contributions and the role that anyone can have, this talk will then focus more specifically on the code contribution as well as the git and gerrit tools that are managed by the foundation to facilitate the work.
Using concrete examples of contributions (bug fixes, new components, …), different use cases and tips will be explained in detail.
The purpose of this talk is to show that everyone can contribute at his level, and that the code contribution is made through modern and professional tools.
In this part we will repeat the basics (concepts, bug fixing process, tooling…). If people are attending the two parts they can keep on fixing bugs while the introduction is repeated.
We sent an email on monday to explain the prerequisites you must install on your laptop to attend this hackathon. If you did not receive it you can get the text from this page :
