New developers wanted

Post by SubJunk » Fri Aug 31, 2018 4:31 pm

As you might know, UMS is an open source project, and as such we partly rely upon code contributions from others via GitHub.

We have a core team of developers that keep the new features and fixes coming, but we can always use more! If you're a Java developer (or just a developer who has an interest in Java, as many of us were at first) and are interested in contributing to this project, please feel free to get in touch.

If you're familiar with GitHub, an easy way to start contributing is to submit a Pull Request to us on there; anyone can do it and it's a great way for us to get familiar with you. If you end up making regular contributions that are merged into the program, you will probably receive an invitation to join the UMS development team, which gives extra bragging rights!

If you want to help but aren't sure what to work on first, please feel free to ask us, and we can point you to a bug to fix, or even a feature to implement if you're feeling brave. Fixing bugs is a great way to get to know the code.
