Getting involved in the MongoDB community is a great way to build relationships with other talented and like minded engineers, increase awareness for the interesting work that you are doing, and sharpen your skills. Here are some of the ways that you can contribute to the MongoDB ecosystem.
You’ll find active conversation around MongoDB online. If you’re looking to learn best practices and share ideas with your global peers, here’s where you can get started:
Stack Overflow: For specific technical questions and answers
MongoDB User Mailing List: For general and open-ended questions and software announcements
MongoDB Developer Mailing List: For those interested in contributing to MongoDB
MongoDB User Groups (MUGs) are a great way to network, learn from one another about MongoDB best practices, and have fun. There are over 100+ around the world. If there isn't a MUG in your area and you are interested in starting one, please contact us.
Blog. Share your use case or experience with MongoDB on your personal blog or contribute a guest post to the MongoDB blog. If you write about MongoDB, contact the community team for help promoting your content.
The MongoDB manual is maintained in a public repository on Github. As with other open source projects, you can submit changes by making a pull request. We encourage you to make improvements, write tutorials, or expand sections.
Open source projects benefit from community contributions and feedback. You can help contribute to MongoDB by suggesting features in JIRA, submitting patches for the core server or one of the drivers (see our guidelines), or building tools that help developers and operators use MongoDB more effectively.
Our team regularly presents at, attends, and sponsors industry events. Introduce yourself to us and let us know how we can help.
If there's some other way you'd like to contribute, feel free to contact us! Thanks for your interest in MongoDB!
