Are you a KiCad user with some C++ programming experience? Have you ever wanted to fix a bug or add a feature to help you be more productive? I'll walk you through the process of fixing an example bug from start to finish. We'll cover the KiCad development process, how to navigate the codebase, how to compile and debug on Linux, and how to submit a patch to the development team.

About the speaker:

Jon has been working on KiCad code since 2016 and joined the core developer team in early 2018. His day job is as an electrical engineer, currently working on 3D printers at Formlabs and previously working on portable analytical instruments. When he occasionally gets a chance to run KiCad instead of writing code for it, he designs LED lighting control electronics for hobby projects.

KiCon 2019 was a conference for people who use and love KiCad. For more information: https://kicad-kicon.com
