>Are you actually using FreeBSD? Before even thinking of contributing,
why don't you give yourself 1 or 2 years of solid use of the operating
system? Install, uninstall, break, fix, reinstall, configure. You can
do this in a VM first and then maybe on real hardware. You don't go
from n00b to developer in one day.
I started using FreeBSD about 2 months ago and have purchased books like absolute freebsd and have learned a lot.
I can set up a desktop environment that has all the programs I need, so that's not the problem. It's that I want to progress past simple editing of configuration files and minor system administration tasks like the crontab. I want to try and stick with FreeBSD as my main and probably mostly only OS. Meaning, I would like to skip the ubuntu step. It seems as though the FreeBSD docs is the way to go. Just read it over a few times, as well as the porters handbook. I'll get straight to it so I can contribute to ports and docs, even if it takes a couple years!!!

My question is whether or not there is anything I can contribute or maintain for freebsd without any skills. What direction should I take my education if I wish to be able to maintain a port. Is c++ programming required? What else is required? You have posted a few similar threads on this subject but: > Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail. Are you actually using FreeBSD?
