FabAcademy - Tutorials

This a living collection of tutorials created by Fab Academy instructors/students around the world to support Fab Academy. Don't rely on a single tutorial. Check the the multiple tutorials and look for other resources.

How do I contribute?

Additions are always welcome, but if you are creating a modified version of a tutorial, don't duplicate information. Just update the existing tutorials. Tutorials can be created in any language, but use of English is strongly encouraged for maximum diffusion.

  1. Create a https://fablabs.io/ account if you don't have already one.
  2. Fork the FabAcademy-Tutorials repository
  3. You will find a folder for each week/assignment. Create your tutorial inside the corresponding assignment folder.
  4. Your tutorial name must clarify the OS and language used in the tutorial. Example: shopbot_windows_english.md
  5. Write your tutorial using Markdown. If it is your first time writing in Markdown follow this tutorial. Your can use any text editor like Atom, Sublime, Brackets, or Notepad++
  6. We have provided a template for creating new tutorials in case you need a guideline.
  7. If you need to host images or files, create a folder next to your tutorial using the same name as the tutorial (example shopbot_windows_english). Put your images and files inside it. Recommended images size is 800x600 pixels.
  8. Keep it simple. Less is more.
  9. Build the Gitbook locally - MANDATORY - this will allow you to test an offline version of the book and not break the online one!
  10. Once you are done. Create a merge request to have your tutorial approved by the mighty instructors.
  11. Once approved you can read your tutorial in the tutorials book
  12. Thanks for your contribution!

Just transferred to pub/tutorials. Testing build.
