Where to Participate in the Community
We want contributing to Gatsby to be fun, enjoyable, and educational for anyone and everyone. If you’re interested in participating in the Gatsby.js community, contributions go far beyond pull requests and commits. We are thrilled to receive a variety of other contributions including the following:
- Blogging, speaking about, or creating tutorials about one of Gatsby’s many features. Mention @gatsbyjs on Twitter and/or email marcy [at] gatsbyjs [dot] com so we can give pointers and tips (if you want them 😄) and help you spread the word. Please add your blog posts and videos of talks to our Awesome Gatsby page.
- Presenting at meetups and conferences about your Gatsby projects. Your unique challenges and successes in building things with Gatsby can provide great speaking material. We’d love to review your talk abstract/CFP, so get in touch with us if you’d like some help!
- Submitting new feature ideas through an RFC
- Submitting new documentation; titles in the side navigation on docs which are lighter in color on gatsbyjs.org are stubs and need contributions
- Tweeting about things you #buildwithgatsby (make sure to use the hashtag and/or @ mention us!)
- Submitting documentation updates, enhancements, designs, or bug fixes
- Submitting spelling or grammar fixes
- Adding unit or functional tests
- Triaging GitHub issues — especially determining whether an issue still persists or is reproducible
- Reporting bugs or issues
- Searching for Gatsby on Discord or Spectrum and helping someone else who needs help
- Teaching others how to contribute to Gatsby’s repo!
As our way of saying “thank you” to our contributors, all contributors are eligible for free Gatsby swag — whether you’re contributing code, docs, a talk, an article, or something else that helps the Gatsby community. Learn how to claim free swag for contributors.
