Hey there,
This is Preet Vadaliya and I am also form Ahmedabad, Gujarat if you have any queries regarding opensource development then please feel free to ask in community.

For best practices following this steps..

  1. Run App Inventor source locally
  2. Try to solve issues from GitHub tagged with 'help-wanted'
  3. If you got stuck then ask in community.

BTW best of luck for opensource journy with App Inventor.


If you want to contribute in App Inventor you need to learn bit about..
3. Git and GitHub concepts

  1. Google Web Toolkit(for Front-end part)
  2. Google Blockly(for block editor)
  3. Android SDK (for component)
  4. Scheme (Kawa) (for built in block)

I want to add one more thing you not need to be perfect in those technologies but you can learn any one of them perfectly and then start solving issue form GitHub.


Thank you so much @preetvadaliya for showing me a way . Really looking forward to learn these technologies and start contributing .
