Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-4714) Create landing page for new developers
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2017 20:34:00 GMT
Michael Miller created ACCUMULO-4714:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Create landing page for new developers
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4714
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4714
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Michael Miller


The website has a lot of good information for contributing to Accumulo but it is scattered
across multiple pages.  There is no clear, concise page that can be sent as a link to developers
interested in committing to the project.  I feel like this is a turn off for someone who is
interested in contributing to Accumulo.  

This page would be a good place but it is just a bunch of links: https://accumulo.apache.org/contributor/

As a recent newcomer I would tend to go here:
https://accumulo.apache.org/contributor/source
But this page is confusing.  The first instructions you get (after more links) explain how
to build the website. Then when you get to the developers guide the the very first thing is
a paragraph about activating the Thrift profile.  While this information is all very useful,
the first 2 scenarios are edge cases of development and it does not ease a new developer into
writing code for Accumulo.
