Hi Dennis,

Happy to help, My email is grmccray@yahoo.com or garyrmccray@gmail.com.

Really happy to have you working on this.

The wiki has really needed much better developer information for a long time.

Mission planner has been needing this for a long time.

APM and especially PX4/APM information is also in need of a lot better how to information for aspiring developers or just people who want to test out some of their own ideas and don't know enough to get started.

I will certainly help you as much as I can.

Best Regards,

Gary

Also, the root APM:Pilot page here: http://ardupilot.com/

is how you normally get to the Developer site here: http://dev.ardupilot.com/

Which is where all of the developer info for Mission Planner and APM / PX4 will be stored as wiki pages. (Note store in Wiki not pages).

You can get to the local editor information page here: http://dev.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-editor-information-resource/

If you haven't looked at that yet, it should be helpful (it is a common page on all the other sites too.)

What I personally woulkd like to see is a step by step walk through which basically walks a person through every keystroke of:

Getting the information from Github into your computer.

Obtaining and setting up Visual studio. (maybe some of that can be left up to the MS web site.)

Setting up your system for editing the Mission Planner code.

Actually editing Mission Planner code.

Producing a successful build of the Mission Planner code.

Loading and running your own modified version of Mission Planner

Submitting your code for potential inclusion in Master.

If you/we could accomplish that it will make a whole lot more people able to potentially contribute to Mission Planner.

It might be good to sort of bounce it back and forth a bit using me as the guinea pig.

You could put in your best shot at this or one of the first sections of it and then I could try it out and see if I can get it to work, possibly editing in some step-wise instruction on a second Wiki page copy.

That way you could verify or approve (or not) what I had done and we could kind of step through the whole process that way and end up with a good intro to mission planner development.

However, that said, please edit in whatever document you have a mind to from a simple section to the whole thing and we can go from there.

Do not think I have to approve anything, this is your baby and I am really just here to help, just suggesting a few possibilities.

Please let me know whatever you want.
