Drupal has an amazing community of people who create the software and help each other make the best use of it. It is the best resource to understand, and become a part of, in order to help you on your Drupal journey. There is a wide variety of learning resources and ways to get support, as well as a thriving tradition of local events: meetups, "camps", and conferences. Since Drupal is created and maintained by volunteers, the more you get involved with the project, the more quickly you can learn and get access to the answers you need.

Example tasks

  • Find an answer in the community documentation
  • Attend a local event
  • Report and help fix a bug in a contributed module

Confidence

The community is always improving processes and tools, so specific steps and resources for getting involved with the community may change over time.
