How to connect and get involved in the open-source community.
As an open source project, Drupal depends on the contributions of thousands of people around the world. Contributions come in many forms including documentation, code, translation, speaking, organizing events, mentoring others, and even donating money. Being involved by volunteering your time and resources not only supports Drupal directly, but it also provides a wealth of opportunities for you as well. It's a great way to learn and make connections you might not otherwise find.
- Organize or attend a local meetup
- Share a module you've built
- Update community documentation
- Help fix a bug in Drupal core or a contributed module
- Contribute to the translation of a Drupal project
There are many ways to contribute, and the community is always looking for ways to improve the contributor experience. Most of the common ways to contribute have well-established guidelines and community members willing to help with guidance, while specific tools and processes may change over time.
