It is very important that you complete the following tasks PRIOR to the hackathon.
1. Read the developers section of the PyLith manual.
2. Install the PyLith development environment Docker image. This Docker image (container) will be provided along with detailed installation instructions closer to the hackathon.
3. Read through the CIG Software Development Best Practices https://github.com/geodynamics/best_practices. For PyLith, we strive to meet the Target Best Practices.
4. If you are not familiar with Git, please see https://git-scm.com/doc and https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2. There are many good tutorials out there. Check out git's beginner's tutorial here.
Please do not hesitate to ask questions using the PyLith category of the CIG Forum!!!!
