Getting Involved

It’s really the Drupal community and not so much the software that makes the Drupal project what it is. So fostering the Drupal community is actually more important than just managing the code base.

- Dries Buytaert

As an open source project, we don’t have employees to provide Drupal improvements and support. We depend on our diverse community of passionate volunteers to move the project forward by working on not just web development and user support but also many other contributions and interests (such as marketing).
