If there's any areas you're interested in, feel free to ask about them, and I can point you in the right direction. Key areas right now are library development of disk management, package management, power management, and system health & repair. There's also improving the quality of the elementary appcenter by contributing improvements upstream, and improving the feature set of Popsicle. If you have ideas of your own, feel free to suggest them.Hi there!
I am a recent college CS grad and have been looking for a good open-source project to contribute to for a while. I'm currently working as an automation engineer in a .NET environment, but I'm competent with programming in Rust and Python as well.
Let me know if you have any recommendations for projects to look into. I'll keep skimming through the pop GitHub projects to see if anything catches my eye. I've been using Pop OS for about a year now, so I'm happy to work on testing/documentation as well.
You may also want to check out Redox OS. There's much opportunity to share developments between Redox and Pop!_OS. Redox needs a lot of system libraries and tools written in Rust. Many of these could be ported to Linux as well (if porting is even required). These are longer-term investments, of course, as you have to develop many things from scratch.
Outside of coding, adding missing appstream data to our repos is really helpful, and hugely beneficial to end users that rely on this data being available to install that software from the shop. The missing GIMP appstream metadata, for example.
