Pyplot Documentation

Hi,

My name is Sammy, I’m a university student currently pursing a bachelors in computer science. I have been working with the pyplot API for some time. It has been a very useful tool for me, especially in some of my courses (so thank you for making it!).

I’d really like to get involved with the open source community, and due to my interest and experience with pyplot, I’ve reflected on a number of ways that the documentation could be improved upon.

I’ve taken a number of courses which really focus on the subject area and differing structures of documentation. Moreover, I’ve engaged in a number of projects working in both coding and documentation. As such I was just wondering if it would be of interest to the group if I were to write up some alternative documentation for even parts of the pyplot library? Alternatively, if there are any other areas in which I could be of assistance please let me know as well, and I’ll be happy to help.

Thanks for your time, and hope to hear from you!

That would be great! There’s always room for improvement in the
docs. The best way you can help is to read up on how to generate
github pull requests (in the matplotlib developer docs) and start
submitting proposals for things that could be improved.

Cheers,
Mike

Sammy,

We would welcome improved documentation, as well as your ideas on documentation strategy. You can tell us about the latter on this list, and you can submit the former as github pull requests from your fork of mpl.
