# 4. Make First Contribution
Now that you are all set up, it's time to make your first contribution. Follow the sections below to add yourself to the team and learn our workflow.
# Recommended workflow
# Create a new branch
Lando uses a modified GitHub Flow (opens new window) development model. You can read more about this process in the aforementioned link but the general code flow is as follows:
# Make sure you are in the lando source repo cd /path/to/cloned/lando/source # Make sure you are on an updated master git checkout master git pull origin master # Checkout a new branch for your contribution git checkout -b addContribMe
# Add yourself as a contributor
# Follow and answer the interactive prompts lando.dev contrib:add # Verify you've been added lando.dev contrib:list
# Commit and push
# Add updates, commit and push git add . git commit -m "Adding MYSELF to the team" git push origin addContribMe
# Open a Pull Request
# Manual workflow
If the recommended workflow above is not working for you, then you still have a few options. We definitely don't prefer these since they require work on our end.
# Directly edit
