The following types of contributions are particularly useful for the project.

  1. Validating the source code and text of the lessons, fixing bugs and errors.
  2. Help in making lessons content more accurate and easier to understand.
  3. Working on the source code and content for new lessons.
  4. Sharing source code of completed exercises.

  7. Anything else that can help the project.

Contributing completed exercises

If you successfully completed any of the exercises you can share your source code. The code should be placed in the following folder /exercises/lessonXX/<exercise number>/<your github username>/ Such folder structure allows to accept pull requests for the same exercise from different people.
