The main prerequisite for working on SuperTuxKart is good C++ knowledge. You will also want to get familiar with our [https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/supertuxkart/ bug tracker]. You do need a sourceforge account in order to submit a ticket. For a successful proposal we expect you to supply at least one patch beforehand so that we can have a look at your coding and commenting style. Either pick one of the existing tickets, or create your own ticket. In any case, please discuss the ticket with us first, some tickets might sound very simple but could be a lot of work for a proper implementation. While STK's documentation is rather good and extensive, we always welcome patches to improve this, and fix [[Coding_Style | coding style issues]].

Any contributions to SuperTuxKart must be in clean and portable C++. They should also compile without any warnings. We don't expect that a student to be able to check his code on all supported platforms - our community will do this and fix any minor issues that should occur when using a different compiler. But please have a look at some of our [[Portability_concerns | portability advise]].
