Re: Help to Begin

Hello Sai, 
It's great to see you interested in Debian Package Management . 
I recommend you to go through Debian wiki first about package management and for non Debian wiki reference you can go through a Blog written by Me why I started Debian packaging and Basics of Debian packaging (Not a promotion ) 


Links :- https://wiki.debian.org/Packaging (Wiki link) , https://manas-kashyap.github.io/jekyll/2018/11/11/Basic-Guide-for-Debian-Packaging/

My name is Vamshi presently pursuing my bachelor's degree in Hyderabad,India.I knew bits and pieces of python, typescript, Django,html,css and I am willing to provide few contributions to the Debian projects can you please let me know the things that I need to learn more to get familiarised with Debian projects.

As a beginner to Debian I even have few small queries regarding Debian package management like what kind of Debian packages can we make (yup I knew it may sound odd but I failed in getting out the proper ideology behind packaging and I even found few making web applications with flask and describing about them in debconf this literally droped me in confusion of "what is a Debian package is at last?" And repositories of Debian packages on GitHub just turned my hopes on working for Debian go down )

Hopefully waiting for a reply and looking for a mentor to help me out in this initial chunk of my journey here ....
