Drupal Community: Getting Help and Getting Involved

by Ben Melançon and Susan Stewart

“Drupal: come for the software, stay for the community.”

—Dries Buytaert, Drupal founder

You might be wondering how Drupal is made and where its thousands of contributed modules, themes, features, profiles, and other resources come from. The Drupal community is a somewhat nebulous concept from an outsider's perspective. Who are these people?What makes them part of the community? What's in it for me?

The Drupal community is anyone who has made Drupal better—through code, theming, translation, support, organizing, or other avenues. Becoming a community member is easy: hang around Drupal IRC, forums, or mailing lists and help people solve their Drupal problems. Hang around the issue queues on drupal.org and do bug triage, test patches, or contribute fixes. Create your own Drupal modules or themes and share them on drupal.org. Learn how to do something with Drupal, then write or improve the documentation on it.
