Re: [eclipse-dev] Welcome Email

Anjula,

Other than the IDE Itself, were there any projects that you thought you might want to use? Often times using a project inspires contributions.

Thank you Jonah,

Yes I was looking for a way to contribute to Eclipse and I found the links that you given were very useful. Thanks again. 

As per you suggested I looked into many number of projects That the eclipse is doing and now I'm confused. I have knowledge in Java and is there any particular project that you recommend for a start? So I can keep my focus on one project? 

Thanks In advance.

Hi Anjula,

Welcome!

Your question is rather broad, so I am not sure exactly which
direction to point you in. If you are not already familiar with
Eclipse as a user I would start with https://eclipse.org/users/, if
you want to use Eclipse to develop and extend Eclipse, there are a
wealth of tutorials on Vogella's website:
http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/eclipse.html. If you want to
contribute back to Eclipse, start at https://eclipse.org/contribute/

If you are considering contributing back to Eclipse (and I hope you
are!) one of the decisions you may have to make early on is which part
of Eclipse to contribute to. Eclipse is made up of dozens of projects,
some are quite central to the Eclipse IDE (e.g. SWT
https://www.eclipse.org/swt/ and JDT https://www.eclipse.org/jdt/) and
others are not even written in Java and are not part of the IDE.

As you explore and learn more you will find what interests you most
and where you can contribute the best.

Again, Welcome!
Jonah
