Time Commitment: At least one hour per week.
As a developer you will be able to identify accessibility bugs, log them, and even recommend fixes. Before you get started, you will want to take a few minutes to become familiar with JIRA which is the program we will use to track issues.
You can start by taking a look at our projects, or jumping right into JIRA. The following are some basic instructions to help you get started:
Claim an issue
- Sign in to JIRA at https://tech.lds.org/jira/browse/ACCS and click on "Issues" from the list in the left navigation.
- Under the heading “Unresolved: By Priority” select one of the categories to view the issues listed.
- Read through the different issues by clicking on them. If there is one that you feel you would like to work on, click the “Assign To Me” button.
- Get to work!
Create an issue
- Click on the button in the top right-hand corner that says “Create Issue”.
- Under “Project” it should say “Accessibility”.
- Under “Issue Type” you will need to select the best description of your issue.
- If you have questions on filling out the issue, review Filling out a JIRA issue.
If you are not yet assigned as a developer and would like to be one, contact Christopher.
