Adding all of them to DevDocs would make the search unusable
Hey DevDocs contributors,
I have some exciting news.
First of all, freeCodeCamp has reached a point where we are pretty sustainable. I am confident that our nonprofit will be able to sustain itself for the rest of the decade – and all this in spite of the global recession and its impact on charitable giving.
And freeCodeCamp's codebase and curriculum are in a good place as well. We recently shipped our Python certifications, and are close to localizing our curriculum into major world languages like Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese.
We are now at a point where we can focus more energy on DevDocs, and allocate some of our engineering team to help as well.
Oliver (@ojeytonwilliams) has been contributing to freeCodeCamp since 2018 – mostly to our core Node.js + React codebase – and recently joined our team full time. He has a Ph.D. in particle physics from University of Southampton, is based in Brussels, and enjoys playing games of strategy. He is new to DevDocs, but is steeping himself in the codebase.
I met with @simon04_gitlab a few hours ago, and discussed his perspective on DevDocs and his experience as a contributor over the past year. Oliver and I also spent some time reading through the commit history, outstanding issues, and the chat history here on Gitter.
I propose that everyone here who is interested in contributing – including past contributors and maintainers like @j-f1 and @jmerle and of course @thibaut – meet for a 1 hour Google Hangout call. The purpose of this call will be for us to share ideas, and for Oliver to learn as much as he can about everyone's priorities for DevDocs.
If you are interested in attending, could you add your availability to this When2Meet so we can find an optimal time? I hope to meet early next week – or even over the weekend if that works best: https://www.when2meet.com/?10203106-nTvMG
With your help, we can not just maintain DevDocs, but expand it. And we can continue to serve the global developer community with fast, accessible, and enjoyable documentation.
Hi everyone :) It's great to have the chance to get involved with this project. I'm looking forward to getting to grips with things and seeing where I can help out.
As Quincy said, I do need to get up to speed - I'm still very new to the codebase. Any and all advice is very welcome, particularly on what to focus on while going through the repo.
