  • Q: I'd like to participate. How do I begin?

      The immediate need is for programmers. However, a website will be needed. A logo needs to be made. Test content and documentation written, etc. Check out https://github.com/scottidler/sota and let me know what you want to do.

      • Tip:

        Talk about diverse kinds of contributions. Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Examples:

        Here's how to download and patch our codes…

        Read about our death-defying mailing list and momentous IRC channel at http://lobstermag.net.

  • Q: Other than writing code, how can I contribute?

      Help us find capable programmers to accelerate the development.

      or any of these would be helpful too: documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity...

      • Tip:

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • 0
      I would like to add testing via Catch or something similar.

      Checkout the Catch project on github. It appears to be a fairly robust unit testing framework for c++.

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with sota that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

    • 0
      I would like to support unicode source files.

      What do we need to do to make that happen?

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.

What else do you want to talk about?
(logo)

sota is a new dynamic programming language borrowing from python, yaml, bash, ruby f#, perl and c|c#. It is a combination of the best these languages have to offer with a few new twists thrown in. It is written using a TDOP parser and will have an LLVM backend. I could use 3 or 4 dedicated programmers to help me accelerate progress.
