How can you help?

We always look for more contribution and involvement from community. Please bear in mind that all software you download is free of charge, and all of them can be downloaded with full source code for easy modification and redistribution.

If you would like to help NUI Group and be part of this wonderful community, here are some starting points:

Coding and patching

NUI Group is working on a set of applications and libraries. Most of them has their open source, or will be opening in a short amount of time. Since you are contributing to an open source project, your patches will be included in the next release. Thus, please respect the copyright of others and make sure that you are giving away your own work.

Documentation

NUI Group always welcomes documentation writers. This does not mean writing a book or a big administrators guide - even small contributions will make NUI Group more visible for end users. Here's a small list of what you can do:

  • Help create a documentation standard for NUI Group wiki
  • Translate documentation in your own language. Please ask for assistance if you need a seperate web page for this.
  • Read existing documentation and suggest modifications and corrections.
  • Provide screenshots for different applications NUI Group provides.
  • Prepare NUI Group videos on Youtube.

Forums
