Contributing

How get involved and contribute to the development of Origins and the community around it.

## Everyone Documentation is the first and primary interface most people will interact with. The easiest way to contribute is simply reading the documentation and suggesting edits and additions by clicking on the link "Suggest Edits" on the right side of the title (see above). Another way to contribute is look through the open [community](https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins/labels/type%3Acommunity) and [proposal](https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins/labels/status%3Aproposal) issues on the source repository. You are encouraged to share your opinion to help shape the project. ## Developers Origins is written in [Go](http://golang.org) and is in the **alpha** stage of development. The source code and issues are hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins. To setup your environment, consult the [README](https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins/blob/master/README.md).

Issues marked [easy-pickins](https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins/labels/status%3Aeasy-pickins) are most appropriate for newcomers who want to gradually introduce themselves to the project. ## Domain Experts A *domain expert* has deep knowledge about a particular field or topic area. The environment Origins is being developed in and applied to is *biomedical and translational research*. Through various applications, patterns are observed and [conventions emerge](doc:conventions) that can be reused for subsequent projects. Some conventions are general purpose and others may be domain-specific. Domain experts can contribute in this area by reviewing and curating domain models and developing new ones! The easiest way to get started is to scan the [domain models repository](https://github.com/chop-dbhi/origins-domain-models) for domains you are familiar with and simply review them. To account for this review we ask that you *sign-off* on the parts that you review. For those who have a GitHub account (recommended), this can be done by opening an issue stating your name, email address, and the entities in the domain that you reviewed.
