Hello Akshat,


Have you worked on an open source project before?

For Purr Data, a good place to start is to install it and skim some of the
using the Help Browser in the "Help" menu. That will show you the basic

Once you've done that, uninstall it and try to build Purr Data using guide


For the projects you listed you can use the `make light` recipe to build
only the
core without all the extra libraries. All in all it should take about 5-10

Once you've successfully built and installed Purr Data, try fixing one of
the issues
on the tracker labeled "good-first-bug." You can use the contributors guide
for help:


In fact, I just added a really easy first bug here:
