This page has wholly superceded by the A-team bootcamp and is being kept mainly for historical reasons.

Welcome! First things first, you should meet the Ateam.

This will look like a lot, but the good news is that you don't need to understand or even use all this to be effective. So, "Don't Panic".

Just bookmark this page and refer back to it as needed. I've structured it like a task list, so when you see someone say something like "Flag that patch on the orange for review" you can come here and figure out what people are talking about (or just ask them).

The best way to get in touch with people, or to get a better idea of the projects is to talk to us over on the #ateam channel in IRC!
