Learn to Code KiCad -- Asia edition
This January 31, 8-10 intrepid coders will join us in Brussels for the
inaugural Learn to Code KiCad day. It looks to be an excellent
But Europe is a long flight for some, so I'm going to run the workshop
at FOSSASIA as well. FOSSASIA happens March 19-21 in Singapore with the
following day (Sunday, March 22) devoted to DevSprints. I'll be
presenting on KiCad at FOSSASIA and would love to meet up with any KiCad
folks who will be attending.
At this DevSprint, I’ll help you understand how the various KiCad
components fit together and work with you to get your favorite feature
from idea to committed code.
What you need:
1) An identified bug report (or multiple) that you’d like to address.
This can be either a legitimate bug or a wishlist feature that is
triaged in our system.
2) A laptop with your development environment
3) A GitLab account
4) A compiling version of KiCad
5) A working knowledge of C++ coding
The FOSSASIA DevSprints provide space, power and wifi for this event.
I'll work alongside you to get your idea or bug fix into commit shape.
At the end of the day, you should be able to get at least 1 and possibly
multiple bug report fixes under your belt and into the code base! The
DevSprint request for this has been submitted. In the event that we
don't make their cut, we will hold this event off-site similar to the
FOSDEM coding day.
If you’re coming to FOSSASIA 2020 and would like to participate, please
e-mail me directly (off-list to preserve people’s inboxes). Send me your
name/contact info and the list of 1 or more GitLab bugs you’d like to
work on during the day. I’ll add you to our shared sheet (to deconflict
bugs people are addressing) and get you all of the relevant information
for the meeting
