Cool. The best way to start is the questions@ mailing list: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/ Try to ask and answer questions there, sometimes it's quite challenging 8-) What is your main interest ? Which programming language, which application area ? Are you into C programming or what would be of interest to you ? > Is there a 'easy-hacks' or 'bugs' list that I can begin with? There's a page with ideas: https://wiki.freebsd.org/IdeasPage and there's the Google Summer of Code ideas page: https://wiki.freebsd.org/SummerOfCodeIdeas And if you want to start bug-squashing, dig into https://bugs.freebsd.org/ and search for interesting bugs to reproduce, and propose patches. > I have downloaded freebsd-10.2-Release-amd64-bootonly. One topic that is always hot is testing and integrating new wireless and other device drivers. https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-wireless/ > I am currently studying Operating system concepts from this book called > 'Operating system concepts' by Silberschatz. I want to contribute to open > source while learning from that book. I recommend reading the general handbook for the concepts: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ Then, if you really want to do operation-system coding, look at the Developers handbook. https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/developers-handbook If you want to have start in the application area, look at the ports tree, and it's handbook: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook -- p...@opsec.eu +49 171 3101372 4 years to go ! _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
