Why should I participate in an open-source project?

  • To acquire knowledge and skills
  • To find amazing people who share similar interests.
  • To advance your career.
  • To track down a mentor who can assist you in achieving your goals.
  • To be happy! (It truly works)

Why contribute to Naas?

  • Because in addition to every stated above, we want to promote your contributions on social networks to skyrocket your reputation and personal branding
  • Because we are also looking for ways to give back more and more to our contributors. Our ultimate goal would be that you could be able to get a revenue stream out of it
  • And because it is damn fun to innovate in the notebook space

Be a part of the community and support Naas on social media! Feel free to drop by to introduce yourself and ask questions on our community calls or over Slack.
We also really appreciate your support on social media (<-see links on the navigation bar). We try to push as much informative, educative, and entertaining but sometimes also provocative content as we can. Because communication comes first, code second.

Commit convention

Note that at Naas we follow the Conventional Commits specification. It is a lightweight convention on top of commit messages. It provides an easy set of rules for creating an explicit commit history; which makes it easier to write automated tools on top.
In Naas, we use the following commit elements to communicate:
  1. 1.
    fix: to patch a bug
  2. 2.
    feat:to introduce a new feature
  3. 3.
    docs: to document a feature or a fix
  4. 4.
    style: to change the UX design of a feature
  5. 5.
    refactor:to change the way a feature works
  6. 6.
    test:to add unitary tests to the project
This commit convention applies to Naas and Naas drivers repository.
