Contributing doesn't always mean making code changes and having a code repository commit access. In fact, some of the best open source contributors never have commit access. In order for CUBRID to be successful, we rely on help in many areas other than writing software. These include:
Bug reports are one of the most valuable type of contributions in CUBRID project. If you attach your patches, even better! You can report bugs for various software used in CUBRID ecosystem:
We pay close attention to each bug report. If you think we should implement some feature, please request.
The documentation is one of the most valuable assets in CUBRID project. It's the first place developers come and look for instructions and sample code. If you've developed a nice application which uses CUBRID as a back-end database, please write a tutorial focusing on:
Asking question is another great way how you can contribute to CUBRID project. It's highly likely that someone else has or will have the same question about CUBRID. Our Q&A site is very well indexed by Google search engine that next time someone asks a similar question, they will find yours and the answer for it.
Even better, jump in and start answering to questions with no answer or if you have a better answer, please do so and start earning the reputation points. We regularly give out $50 worth Amazon or iTunes Gift Cards for such contributions.
Beside writing new tutorials or answering questions, you can simply translate some of the existing documentation pages to your the language you are fluent in. For example, translate:
