Drupal is an open source project built by a team of volunteers from around the world. We don’t have employees to provide Drupal improvements and support. We acquire those valuable assets through the volunteer community members, who bring deep and diverse experience to us. Many people think these community members work mostly on Drupal code, but the truth is that they also work on documentation, marketing, user support, test results, translations, and many other contributions from people with a wide range of abilities and interests.
Groups.http://drupal.org provides a place for groups to organize, meet, and work on projects based on interest or geographic location. It's a great way to get involved, learn more and get support.
Community members can also be found at Drupal events where you can meet face to face, swap tips, and get inspiration for your next Drupal project, making friends along the way.
IRC is one means to communicate and interact with others. Whether you are asking questions or giving answers, IRC is a fast and effective way of getting involved with the community and getting the support you need.
Planet Drupal aggregates blog posts written by the Drupal community, for the Drupal community (code, advocacy, marketing, infrastructure etc.)
If you need professional help, check out our Marketplace where you can find companies on hand to assist with hosting, training and other Drupal services such as development, support, content moderation and spam blocking.
