Welcome Hezekiah, nice to see your interest.

please see for
existing materials we have, especially around 'How to contribute'
section and 'Debugging / Testing'.

Since you are going to work on integrating Samba AD DC and Cockpit, your
work would benefit from the user documentation we have at, including how to
set up Samba as an Active Directory Domain Controller, since some of
those steps would need to be automated in your Cockpit app.
