Calling new Eclipse contributors and experienced Eclipse committers for the Hackathon!

Contributing to an Eclipse project isn't just about knowing how to code. You also have to know where to get the source, enter a bug, run tests, follow the IP process, and get your code reviewed and released.

Luckily, we have a solution that is also a lot of fun – the Hackathon. Seasoned committers will guide contributors through the steps, with the goal of have a real commit pushed to master by the end of the evening.


We need your help! Come to the Hackathon with a list of simple bugs for new contributors to fix. One-line fixes are fine. And note that your project doesn't need to be hosted at Eclipse for you to participate.


Please read the wiki page and follow the recommendations there.

And yes, there will be beer!
