Frequently Asked Questions and Tips

Feel free to ask questions, post tips, or offer feedback about improving your experience contributing to and using Docs!

Example questions w/ their corresponding tip:

:grey_question: What should I write my first contribution on?

Tip: You can check out the repo’s open issues. If you tag a Docs maintainer in a specific issue thread, someone may assign you to that issue.

:grey_question: I’ve been using GitHub’s GUI to contribute to Docs but I want to learn how to work with Git through the command line. I’m not sure how to get started. Any tips would be helpful!

Tip: First, you could figure out what IDE or text editor to use so you can create/edit the project and its files on your local machine. Apart from the Docs repository itself (which contains content standards and other useful info to get started), there’s a really helpful article that you can go over: How to Contribute to Codecademy Docs - DEV Community. Hope this helps!
