Hello and welcome.

To get you started it would be great if you can try to work on an issue
in numpy and create a pull request (PR) to fix it. That way we can get
to know you a bit and you get to know numpy and our workflow.
New contributors might find it easiest to work on the documentation tag/label,
you can see them via:


Some relevant issues (note some of these may already have someone
interested in them):

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/13013  which probably someone
is already working on

https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/13114  which can be broken into a
number of smaller PRs




https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/12097  which is a wip to add a
version selector. This is a pure javascript issue.

Our workflow is based on github, for an introduction see

For instructions on building the documentation, which uses sphinx, see,

I hope you can find something to get you started.

Try to work through the process and reach out when you get stuck with
specific questions: "I tried X, expected Y, but got Z".

Feel free to reach out to Sebastian or me directly if you have any
questions. The issues themselves are also a good place to ask for specific guidance.

Best Regards,
