It’s been a month since I started coding my project Refining Code Critics at Google Summer of Code with Pharo Consortium. Time has passed so quickly! I will limit my experience until now in three words:


There is a great motivation to use open source projects. However, I think we can be more than just users and we can contribute as developers. It’s not necessary to have great knowledge to start doing so with Pharo. For example: there are some issues tagged as “good first issue” and “easy”, that consist in adding commentaries, renaming classes/methods and some others that are self explanatory that consists in only copying and pasting a line of code using Finder tool, just like in the following example issue #5271.

Pharo is a pure object-oriented programming language in the tradition of Smalltalk…
