With October looming in quicker than most of us care to admit we remembered that the time for Hacktoberfest is nigh! This year we would like to encourage as many ladybug tools enthusiasts who wish to contribute back to the project to do so.
We are not 100% sure what themes to focus on this year but we have a few ideas:
- Writing Tests: writing tests is paramount to keep the code base reliable and resilient to future change. It is also a fantastic way to get to know the ins and outs of the ladybug tools code base and increase your knowledge of python and pytest.
- Writing Documentation/Tutorials: ladybug tools core python libraries have pretty thorough API documentation (ladybug for example) but no written tutorials on how to use them to script python workflows. It would be great to have some folk give this a try and share their learnings with others by writing some tutorials/human friendly documentation.
This is an initial set of ideas so please spam the comments with ideas of things you’d like to help with or what can be done to help you get started on your python coding journey with ladybug-tools!
