Hello. New to MuseScore.

lohit
Hello

I am Lohitaksh. I study in IIIT Delhi, India, 1st year. Being interested open source, I would like to start contributing to MuseScore. I have compiled and run MuseScore on my computer (on Ubuntu 14.10).

I am comfortable with the following languages and technologies:
1. C, C++, Python, C#
2. Python Django, PHP
3. HTML, CSS, Javascript

It would be really helpful if someone can help me get started. Should I start working on bugs fixes or take up a project which will take a relatively longer time to complete, or do you recommend starting with something else?

Also, I play the drums (grade 6, LCM), and guitar (grade 4, Rock School). I understand sheet music notation, so I think I will be helpful in contributing to this software.

Thanks

Regards

Hello, and welcome!  I am not one of the lead developers, so take my opinions with a grain of salt.  But I do think I have a pretty good handle on thins, so here's my take:

We are rapidly approaching release of 2.0, so bug fixes right now would be a most welcome thing, and that's one of the best ways to start getting familiar with the code, anyhow.  For a good list of bugs to consider, try:


After the release of 2.0, that's when new projects might seem more interesting, in my opinion.  But you should discuss your ideas here first if you have thoughts of having your worked merged into the main code eventually - there are some types of projects that are probably less likely to be accepted, others where there might already be some clear ideas about how the work should proceed, etc.

Thanks for such a fast reply.

I will start working on the bug fixes then. Hope to make a useful contribution to MuseScore.

Do let me know if there's a particular issue you would like me to start working on.

My personal advice, look at the list I mentioned, and start investigating whatever intrigues you the most - that is what will sustain your interest as you delve into the code.

Of course, some of these will be more difficult than others, and some are probably already being worked on by others.  I might suggest you start by looking at the "Other Program Behavior" section.
