So you’ve always wanted to contribute to Ubuntu Accomplishments, but never knew where to get started? If you are interested in either programming, writing documentation for users, providing a new trophy or dealing with translations, make sure to attend the upcoming event! Next week, Ubuntu Accomplishment developers will share all their secret knowledge, and explain how this all works – from the source code & core logic, to user experience and docs. This is a great chance to get involved!
The classes, divided into several separate sessions according to different ways you can contribute, will take place on Tue 7th Aug 2012 from 6pm to 9pm UTC, and the following day, Wed 8th Aug 2012, 6pm to 8pm UTC. This event will take form of a live videocast, we will be telling you stories, and you will be asking us questions :) We will describe how the system works, how to contribute, in which areas you will be most helpful, and provide a detailed guide on how to get involved.
More details and exact schedule can be found under this link.
The event will be held by Jono Bacon, Matt Fischer, and me (Rafał Cieślak). Here is a preview of planned sessions:
- Introduction and General Overview
- The Accomplishments Daemon
- The Accomplishments Viewer
- Writing Your First Accomplishment
- Contributing Accomplishment Documentation and Translations
As you see, there will be things for all contributors! Choose the sessions you are interested in (more details are available here) or attend all of them, and check the schedule to make sure you won’t miss them :)
We hope to see you all – first during the classes, and soon afterwards – contributing to Ubuntu Accomplishments!
