Season of Docs Project Ideas List

From GNU Radio
Jump to: navigation, search

Organization: GNU Radio

Organization Description: GNU Radio is a free & open-source software development toolkit that provides signal processing blocks to implement software radios. It can be used with readily-available low-cost external RF hardware to create software-defined radios, or without hardware in a simulation-like environment. It is widely used in hobbyist, academic and commercial environments to support both wireless communications research and real-world radio systems.

Primary code repo: https://github.com/gnuradio/gnuradio

Technical writing project ideas[edit]

(It may be possible to combine multiple of these items into 1 project)

  1. The technical writer can work with Marc as he creates the "One page per block" section of the User docs, inspired by MATLAB's documentation
  2. Our tutorials could definitely use a technical writer to improve, and they could even do the GRC (less technical) tutorials as part of that effort, to learn more about GNU Radio throughout the Fall
  3. The Usage Manual is an area of documentation that gets a lot of exposure, because it explains a lot of GNU Radio's basic concepts like messages, tagging, PMTs, etc. Our Usage Manual could definitely use refinement
