Getting started with development
« on: June 17, 2014, 12:25:03 am »
Hi everyone!

Well, firstly let me introduce myself.
I'm Zokni, student of ELTE University in Hungary. I was looking for an open source project to join in - while the AI of the original XCOM was turning - when I find this project. So I visited its website immediately, and now I am here.

However I have some experience as C++ developer, my ears are as green as the grass in contributing open source projects. So in this way I would like to ask for help how to getting started with development.

  • Which documents should I have to read first?
  • How can I understand the game engine?
  • Which files/codes should I pore over first?
  • Who can I get in touch with, as my mentor?

Thanks for help,
Zokni

hello and welcome to the forums, i'd recommend the thread on Getting Started with Git and reading The Coding Guidelines as a starting point, and as for where to cut your teeth on the code... that's up to you.
