'''Join the CC Developer Community'''
<div style="font-size:125%; line-height:1.75em; margin-bottom:1.75em;"><strong>Welcome to the CC Developer Community!</strong> The CC Developer Community is the place to find all about the various software and technical projects that happen within Creative Commons, and the larger CC community. All of the projects developed at Creative Commons are open source software, and just like most open source projects, outside involvement is key to its success.  Be sure to [[Special:Userlogin|create a wiki account]] or [http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Special:OpenIDLogin login with OpenID] so you can add to this wiki and help it grow.

Join the CC Developer Community

Join our Slack, IRC, or mailing list communities to meet other developers interested in Creative Commons, get feedback on your projects, and talk with CC's full-time engineering staff. You can also keep up with us on the CC Open Source Blog or via Twitter.

Get Involved

We really appreciate community contributions and feedback (we're a small team and spread thin) and we especially love seeing what you build using CC's tools.

We do all of our development on GitHub and are generally open to pull requests and proposals for new community-maintained projects. We would especially like help with reviving projects that CC's engineering team does not have the time to actively work on (such as our WordPress plugin and license chooser widget). We're also looking to improve our documentation and increase our automated test coverage across pretty much all our projects, so help with that would be greatly appreciated. Please follow our pull request guidelines when submitting code. If you are not familiar with GitHub or pull requests, here is an excellent guide to get started.
