A-frame Bug Fixing Contest

Hello Mozilla India!
We are inviting all the new developers as well as everyone else interested in contributing,  to take part in the A-Frame bug fixing contest. A quick description for those who don’t know, A-Frame is an open-source web framework for building virtual reality experiences for the web[1]. Your tasks will involve checking the open good-first-bugs in the A-Frame framework[2] as well as the A-Frame official website[3]. Bonus points for fixing advanced bugs! [4] 😉
Steps to get started:
  • Visit the links [2] and [3] and comment  “I want to work on this”  on the issue you decide to work upon.
  • Ask for help if you need. You will get enough help from the A-Frame team as well as the WebVR-India team.
  • Fork the repository on GitHub.
  • Run npm install and npm run dev to serve the test examples.
  • Make changes to your fork of the repository.
  • If necessary, write unit tests and run with npm test.
  • Submit a pull request to the master branch.
  • Address review comments if any.
  • Once you have fixed the issue, report it to the community as well, using the issue 33 under volunteer-contributions[5].
 
What’s in it for you?
  • Contributors who resolve the maximum number of bugs (Top 5), will get a Sony Xperia Z3C to hack and explore!
  • Amongst the remaining ones, the contributors who have fixed a minimum of three bugs will get a special T-shirt from WebVR India! 
And this doesn’t just end here! While fixing these bugs you will get more familiar with the codebase of A-frame, which will enhance your skills as well as be a great help for the exciting open-source project. As you continue, you will be able to fix a lot more bugs for A-Frame as well as develop for awesome features for the framework. And eventually you become a ‘WebVR Hack Star‘, who can guide others to become like them!
So what are you waiting for, jump on the links right away and get started!
