Breakdown of the various types of tasks
Updated Feb 4, 2010 by

Whether or not you're new to programming or even to programming in Python, there are a variety of tasks for you to tackle.

One good place to start is with the demo and advocacy tasks, where you can run through an existing tutorial and then give a presentation on it. You could also try making a screencast, where you record a video from your screen.

You can also work on the Python core distribution or on a variety of applications and libraries written by others.

Testing code is a great way to get to know the code. We have lots of testing tasks; ask for guidance if you need a place to start. Some of the coverage tasks might be especially good.

The Python standard library ("stdlib" for short) is full of great functionality, and we have a bunch of stdlib tasks like writing new examples and updating documentation.

Speaking of documentation and examples, there are plenty of places that need work -- see the documentation tasks or the examples tasks.

Do you know a language other than English? Take a look at the translation tasks.

We have a few UNIX and Windows tasks.

Know how to program in C or C++? We have a few tasks especially for you!

Interested in speed and performance issues? Check out the performance tasks.

The next big version of Python is "Python 3000", a.k.a. "Python 3K" or "Python 3.0". We have a few tasks related to making Python 3K a success!
