Join the Jasig Bedework Community!
Anyone is welcome to join the Jasig Bedework community and get involved. The easiest way to get involved is to subscribe to our Bedework mailing lists as described below. While the mailing lists works well for getting answers to your questions and discussing issues, you may wish to get further involved by self-registering on the Jasig issue tracking system to report issues and log feature requests.
Share Your Deployment
A great way to see who is using Bedework is the Bedework Deployments page. If your institution/company is currently using Bedework in production, let everyone know about it! Follow the link above or navigate to the Bedework->Community->Deployments menu and share your experience (and maybe learn from others).
One way to get involved is to jump on the lists and ideally to help answer questions and further discussion there. Several Bedework mailing lists are available to hear announcements, talk with other calendar implementors or discuss Bedework development.
A comprehensive listing of all Jasig email lists, including those about Bedework, those about loosely related projects, and those about concerns spanning across Jasig projects, is also located on this site.
How to Contribute
Perhaps the easiest way to contribute is to download and install the code, join the implementors mailing list and share your experiences (good or bad) using Bedework and share your ideas as to how it can be improved.
At the next level, you can contribute code in the form of bug fix solutions, enhancements, or skins. If you wish to contribute to Bedework itself, you should first subscribe to the Bedework developers mailing list as outlined above and discuss your contributions with the other developers. You will also need to sign a Contributor License Agreement.
Attend a Conference
The Jasig conferences are great events for hearing the latest Bedework updates and networking with your peers. They are attended by developers, implementors, designers, architects, managers and campus leaders. Training opportunities are often available in conjunction with the conference.
Become a Jasig Member
Finally, your institution or organization can play a valuable role by becoming a Jasig Member. The Jasig Membership page details the benefits of official membership and explains how to become a member.
