Easy tasks for new developers

Here’s where we list some things for you to get started with Juju and Juju Charms.

Charms

  • Charms Needed — If you’re an experienced developer and want to dive in, here’s the list of services that could use a charm.
  • Bitesize bugs — These are beginner bugs, things that are simple and can probably be fixed in a few minutes.
  • Fix READMEs — Charms should have READMEs which are displayed to users in the Charm Store. Many of the older charms don’t have good “How to use this charm” documentation. In order to write a README you need to read the charm hooks, config options, and in general learn the layout of a charm, so this is a good exercise for people who want to learn how Charms are put together. Here is an example of a complete README.
  • Documentation review — We could always use help with documentation, if you want to submit changes to the docs, its a quick way to learn the launchpad workflow.
  • Run a Charm School for your LUG/LoCo/Friends/CoWorkers — We’re always looking for knowledge workers to help spread the word, contact the Juju mailing list if you’re interested.
