Landing page for new developers


#1

We had something like this already. I updated a lot of it to this point: https://github.com/stan-dev/stan/wiki/Introduction-to-Stan-for-New-Developers (history here).

Tried to cross-link to this article from Stan and Math wikis and collect additional resources from them here as a central landing page as well. If you see anything that’s missing please add it!


#2

You may want to preface the discussion with a preview of the requisite skills and a link to https://github.com/stan-dev/stan/wiki/Contributing-to-Stan-Without-C-Plus-Plus--Experience for those who do not have C++ experience and are unable to learn.


#3

Added a link right up top.
