Goals for Brainhack Global 2020:

Good first issues:

Several “good first issues” here but I would like to focus on:

  1. Making sure the documenation is understandable and constitute good on-board and How-To materieal
  2. Create some prototype script / toy example that can take the output of the app and generate a method section

NOTE : I created empty issued where I want to describe better the goals of those 2 issues.


The project has many moving parts so there is a certain level of flexibility in terms of skills needed:
