Introducing myself

Hi all,
My name is Nagarajan (Rajan for short) and I have been a matplotlib user over the last 4 years (used it on/off). I wanted to thank you all for creating an excellent software, and also wanted to contribute back to the project.

I have reasonable competence in Python (~5 years coding experience) and I have good skills in applied mathematics.

I was looking at issues on the github page and was thinking of making my way through some of the low hanging fruits for learning the ropes.

What is the preferred way for project beginners to ramp up?
1. Fork project, fix issue and send in pull requests?
2. Or, send in a patch over an email to this group?

ps: I have the github project forked and ready to go.

Again, thanks for creating this great freebie.
Best
Rajan

Rajan,

Excellent! We would love to have more help!

I think this (fork, fix, send PR) is the best in general. Reviewing existing PRs also can be helpful.

I assume you have looked at the Developers' Guide:
