My name is Gaurav Sahu, an undergraduate student from IIT Kharagpur, India. I would like to contribute to LanguageTool.
I have a keen interest in NLP and I have been working on NLP projects for some time. The major programming languages I use to code are Python and Ruby. So, I am comfortable with the libraries like tensorflow or pytorch but I have no experience of coding in Java. However, I am willing to learn it if required and would be grateful if anyone could guide me on how to start contributing.
I have forked and set up LanguageTool in my local machine following the instructions in development-overview. I also went through the make-languagetool-better and the issues page and #872 felt like something I could work on initially. That’s just my hunch, so kindly suggest me any issue that you feel I should be working on.
PS: I was just curious, is there a way I can contribute whilst coding majorly in another language? (like what @gulp21 did with the neural-networks rules)
Thank you. Looking forward to your response!
