hey! I'm talking to you, you think "I would really like to contribute to emesene, but I don't know python/programming that well".
we get lot of comments like this, we know you are there and that you want to help us.
did you know that I started emesene to learn python?
do you know that the first two developers learned python while fixing bugs on emesene?
did you know that one of them was 14 years old when he started?
did you know that he became the Benevolent Dictator of emesene for more than a year before our mighty cloud replaced him?
did you know that one of those developers now works full time with python and the other is studying computer science?
did you know that almost all actual developers learned python while helping emesene?
did you know that they starting "fixing bugs here and there" and now are full time contributors?
did you know that we also learned a lot about english, open source, licences, project managment and software in general?
now you can't say that we are all python ninjas that were born knowing python, almost 100% of us learned python hacking emesene.
this should give you the idea that yes, you can learn and you can contribute.
if you know some programming/python and want to help then join!
if you always wanted to contribute to an open source project then join!
if you know someone with the above conditions you can help by making him read this!
how to start?
join the emesene users group in google groups, present yourself, from where you are, which is your level in programming and python (it doesn't matter if the answer is almost none, it's just to see how we can start helping you) and let's start hacking!
see you there
