Jon here welcoming you to This Week in Rails!

Today we'll be touring the wondrous Ruby on Rails chocolate factory to see how its marvelous candy, consumed by web apps and developers everywhere, is made and tested.

Golden tickets in hand? Let's go!

How to contribute? Good examples from this week ๐Ÿฐ

That's it for today's tour, but the true journey has only just begun.

Starting today, choose any file in the Rails codebase and read it.

Pick an open issue on the master branch, and try to reproduce the bug using the Rails bug report templates.

Go through the Contributing to Ruby on Rails Guide. Set up your Rails test environment.

Pick an open pull request and test it or review it.

You'll be surprised what baby steps like these can lead to!

Enjoy the wonderful chocolate -- and see you next week.
