How to Contribute to Ansible - Step by Step


Contributing to Open Source projects like Ansible can be a daunting endeavor. Even though most Open Source projects have guides and tutorials, there are always those little bits missing that may be the crucial element that decides whether you contribute or not. Books, podcasts and videos are good, but nothing is better than a developer's step-by-step walk-through of their own personal Ansible contribution experience. Learn how and why I contributed to Ansible and how you can too. We’ll arm you with what you need to know, things like Python, git, and YAML. We’ll go over how to set up your development environment and contribute your code. We’ll also cover what happens when you submit your contribution, how to avoid common mistakes, and your contribution becoming part of an Ansible release.
