Make sure you stay for a while, mentors are not always available!

One of the best ways to get started is to communicate with your mentors over IRC. Pysoy's IRC channel is #pysoy on  irc://irc.freenode.net. There you should be able to find your mentors and possibly some more guidelines and tips in your quest to complete your task. Make sure you stay a while in the irc channel, because mentors are not always available. Find your mentor and agree on an acceptable method of communication, make sure you keep constant communication.

Probably first thing you want to do is find out what your interested. Pysoy has a variety of tasks that should appeal to most people (3D, General Graphics, Math, some Graphic Design), so you should be able to find something of interest. Browse through the task list in the Code-In website and see if anything catches your eye.

Next, you probably want to read up on your task. Try to find out as much as possible by yourself, and if something doesn't make sense, write down some questions regarding the topic.

  • If you are confident in your ability to complete the task, go ahead and claim it

Once you have found your mentor, you can start work when he approves your claim. When you run into trouble make sure you first at least attempt to find the answer before getting help from your mentor. Getting help from a mentor isn't always the best route since it make take some time to get a reply.

Finally once you think your done, show you mentor and it you should be good.
