Community

Join the Jasig uMobile community!

Anyone is welcome to join the Jasig uMobile community and get involved. The easiest way to get involved is to subscribe to our uMobile 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.

Mailing Lists

One way to get involved is to jump on the lists and ideally to help answer questions and further discussion there. Several uMobile mailing lists are available to hear announcements, talk with other mobile implementors or discuss uMobile development. There are also mailing lists for portlets.

A comprehensive listing of all Jasig email lists, including those about uMobile, 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 the portal and share your ideas as to how it can be improved. You can also visit the Jasig wiki and contribute your ideas there.

At the next level, you can contribute code in the form of bug fix solutions, enhancements, or uMobile content. If you wish to contribute to the uMobile Framework itself, you should first subscribe to the uMobile Framework Developers mailing list as outlined above and discuss your contributions with the other developers.

Contributing Documentation

The uMobile project also needs contributions in the area of documentation. you can help. Our wiki is now the primary mechanism for documenting uMobile.

Attend a Conference

The Jasig conferences are great events for hearing the latest uPortal 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.
