Hello guys I am a first-year student currently pursuing cse and I have been learning web development for quite some time. I saw came by the jitsi-meet github repo from the GSoC 2022 organization list I was really intrigued and I want to start contributing to this project.
I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice and how to get started and how could I get accepted as a contributor during GSoC 2022 period
Welcome to the community!
@emcho will be in touch. In the meantime, you can start looking through the repos at github:
Extremely psyched to be a part of the community.
Actually, I have gone through the jitsi-meet repo and I have been using jitsi for a while with my friends during the last wave of the pandemic when we were searching for alternate ways to interact online.After coming to college while learning web development I thought I should contribute to a software that I have already used !
I have also gone through the GSoc Idea list
2.Recording storage providers
IMO, at first, you need to work on how to setup a development environment
thanks for your reply.
Ok I will get on it asap . Just to be clear you mean from here, right ?
NOte that we are also open to new ideas
Actually, I was thinking about expanding the storage provider idea where maybe we can add mega to the list using the mega SDK because from what I have seen a lot of students use that.
But I think the main problem is I like I said I am a beginner and I would require some help with docs/references/guides to get get me up to speed with the the usual tech stack and flow of fundamental projects.
Did you check this handbook?
Yeah going through it right now.
Hey So I went through the handbook and I get the basic cruz of the projects, codebases and contribution may I ask is there any space where I can ask specific doubts and queries like a slack channel or something?
Here, the forum is the right place for questions.
ok cool first I think I will need to install ubuntu rather than my current OS (windows) as it is not supported for building the website. I was also getting npm installation errors.
Ubuntu 20.04 or
Debian 11 Bullseye will be OK
