Getting started with development


(Mohit Athwani) #1

Hello,
I'm a master's student in computer science and as part of my degree, I have
to contribute to some well known open source repositories. I have been an
iOS developer since 5 years now and I'm wondering if anybody in the
community can help me get started with where to look for issues/bugs and
how to go about fixing them and sending pull requests.

Appreciate help in any form!

Thanks,

Mohit

Here is the general guide for contributions:

https://swift.org/contributing/

If you want ideas for simple things to fix, look at the ‘StarterBug’ label in the bug tracker:

https://bugs.swift.org/issues/?jql=status%20in%20(Open%2C%20Reopened)%20AND%20labels%20%3D%20StarterBug

Good luck!

Is there a specific part of the compiler that interests you?

As of now I'm just trying to get my feet wet and understand the directory
structure and figure out what's going on where.

I looked at the bug tracker for StarterBugs and found something that I feel
i could probably work on: https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-3891

Somebody in the comments has pointed out exactly what file and what
function in that file needs to be fixed. I looked at the function and could
not figure out much. I also tried to look for test cases related to
ASTPrinter but can't figure out where exactly to look for it.

Thanks for your help!
