Would the following be a good course of steps to follow in order to help you and stephan in the future or do you know a better route for beginners who want to help? Perhaps efl is not for the raw beginner programmer and I should focus my efforts on helping users and financial contributions to the project. I would understand if that is the case as well.
1. Learn Python
2. Go through the Python efl tutorals that are on the Bodhi github site
3. Contact you or stephan for a list of tasks
Perhaps I am biased but I think everyone should know a little python. Python is easy to learn comparatively speaking.

So steps one and two are a good start.
But truthfully not alot in Bodhi depends on python programming, some like epad esudo and so on, But overall most of our code is C.
And C is not easy to learn takes a while. But if ya can learn it slowly as you learn python.

Financial contributions are always good also. On rare occasion they make their way down to me or stefan. If we had more contributions of course this would happen more often.

Not on your list is learn how to use the tools with EFL and Bodhi, stuff like eet, edje_cc, edje_decc and get familiar with elementary_config and elementary_test. And try to figure out how themes work, that is a big one but right now Stefan and I are working on fixing all theme problems we know about. Perhaps you could help test?

And by all means contact stefan and me personally for ideas, support and 'tasks.'

Thanks for the interest it is appreciated

Back to the topic at hand

@mowestusa, one thing I forgot to mention is learn bash scripting and familiarize yourself with basic linux cli commands. Knowing a few things about basic commands like man, diff, grep, ack, sed, ... really helps in programming and for fixing bugs in code. You don't have to memorize all the weird options these kinds of commands have, that is why there are man pages and google But it helps to have an idea of what the commands can do and when you need them. It also helps to be able to write scripts to do various things that you realize need to be done but need to be done on a larger number of files or whatnot.

so learn cli and to write shell scripts, learn python and c, learn efl and familiarize yourself some with our themes ...

That is alot so it is not going to come quick.

Thanks again, I'm going to create a todo list of things to learn. I'm going to start with learning Python by reading and doing the exercises in "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist" and then continue on the other suggestions you had. I'm pretty familiar with some of the CLI tools in Linux, but I could dig more deeply into the ones you mentioned specifically. Thanks for your willingness to point newbies in the right direction that will help Bodhi.

this free python programming for beginners (kindle version) book showed up on reddit today in the free ebooks feed:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MDNJH6Q..._NJ7mCbF7NPNXP

i grabbed a copy to check out at some point so i can't vouch for quality or anything, just thought i would pass along the possible free resource. the instructions reminded me to choose buy now at the $0.00 price as opposed to the "read for free" option.
