You Can Help!
How It Works
We have a repository on GitHub that has Markdown files with content and toolchain setup instructions. Just pick something that you are very familiar with or interested in and write.
When you are done, submit a pull request on GitHub and someone from the existing contributors team will suggest improvements or merge your work. It is that easy.
In order to make it easier for potential contributors to join the project, we will post a brief list of guides that do not require deep expertise and can benefit from contributions by complete beginners.
Guides that have structure and good chunk of the content in place but still have holes you can help us plug:
If you want to start working on one of those articles or have existing content you’ve authored that can be ported, please let us know on the Clojure mailing list.
