Google Season of Docs/Project Ideas

Revision as of 04:08, 22 April 2019 by Sean (talk | contribs)

If you want to work on computer-aided design (CAD), geometry, or graphics documentation, you've come to the right place! Help us improve open source BRL-CAD.

Get started quickly by:

  1. Compiling BRL-CAD from source
  2. Reading our existing docs
  3. Getting some additional doc perspective
  4. Reading our contributor guide

Well prepared proposals from capable technical writers have a good chance of getting selected. We consider proposals for all skill levels ranging from simple to crazy hard and everything in between. Introduce yourself via chat (preferred) or via e-mail, and we'll help you plan a project right for you.

Remember that project descriptions are just rough ideas. You must expand with considerably more detail. Change the goals to fit your experience and interests.
