How to contribute?

Hey welcome on this page! You have already made a tangible step towards becoming a contributor :-)

We would be very happy to welcome you as a member of the Substra community and to receive your contributions to this collaborative effort. We favour particularly contributions to the following:

This will happen on Github as soon as the first version is open sourced, and is further described in the CONTRIBUTING.md that will be made available then.

    • Animation: repo Github, technical forum, and dedicated Slack channels

    • Maintainer: Camille Marini

    • Animation: repo Github, technical forum

    • Maintainers: Romain Goussault and Eric Boniface

  • Thematic workgroup 'Communication’: all activities related to communication, dissemination, animation of the community. This includes for example: original contents (blog posts, use cases descriptions), participation to and organisation of events, social medias.

Who is a contributor?

We have summarized on the diagram below the simple idea that ‘contributors’ contribute actively, whereas ‘enthusiasts’ follow the project and ‘members’ are involved in the administrative governance of the non-profit.
