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.
Know more about our communication channels
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.
