Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


[Fedora Hubs](https://hubs-dev.fedorainfracloud.org/) is a collaboration & communication tool for the Fedora

It's always a daunting task for the new contributors to lookout for the areas
to contribute within the Fedora ecosystem. On the other hand, we have the
existing contributors who over time have setup their workflow to contribute to
the ecosystem.

The project, Fedora Hubs is built with the motive to bridge the gap between the
new contributors and the existing contributors.

What's with the Hackfest?

We are doing the Hackfest with the sole aim to on board more contributors to
this project. The base for the project is quite ready, and we also have
integrated few of the primary widgets. Going ahead, we want you to help us
building more widgets and making Hubs more friendlier for the new contributors.

Can I attend the Hackfest?

The participants should be having the knowledge of Python/Flask for programming. Prior to the Hackfest,
we will be doing a talk explaining the goals & architecture of the project. We will also do a workshop
explaining on how you can build your own widgets. This two should be enough to well verse you with helping
with the project. We will have mentors around during the hackfest to help you out.

Area where you can contribute?

The list contains a tentative list of things you can contribute with. But, if
you have an idea on improving the project, just drop into the Hackfest

- Documentation
- Brainstorming
- Mockups
- Code
- Packaging
- Bug Triage


In terms of code, we have jotted down a list of issues that people can work
one. We are also open if you come up with your own feature request.

You can help us with triage bugs, before moving ahead with code.

As a contributor (new or old), you can help us with brainstorming a few issues,
and putting your comments on the table. You can even provide feedback on
existing stuffs if something needs improvement.

One of the most important thing is Documentation. You can help us fixing the
documentation for setting up the dev environment, documenting the widgets etc.
