I am a former programmer. I would like to assist with Ubuntu Mate. What is a good language for programming here?
I will be learning the language, of course.
Hi @lpmorgan1, we'd love to have you help out!
- Ubuntu MATE repos are here: https://github.com/ubuntu-mate (mostly Python, some Vala)
- MATE Desktop repos are here: https://github.com/mate-desktop (mostly C, some Python)
Feel free to ask any more specifics
So I gather Python and C are the two languages most in use.
I will select one and get started.
Any more advice on which language or where to start is most appreciated.
@lpmorgan1, I did a bit of digging and found some issues that could be good to get started:
Also, I wrote a post a while ago on how to get started on forking our projects, building, testing, etc:
Take a look there and feel free to post more questions here.
