Fatiando is a community-developed project. It's people like you who make it useful and successful! Our tools are developed by working geoscientists and community volunteers from across the globe.
Open-source is more than just code, it’s about the people involved. The most important thing you can do for any project is participate in the community: ask and answer questions, share your experience, help guide the development, and make friends along the way.
The Fatiando community gathers in a few different places online, all of which are open to everyone. So come along and join the conversation! See Contact Us to find out where we gather.
Happy community members at one of our weekly Fatiando calls.
Everyone is required to abide by our Code of Conduct when participating in the Fatiando community. Please review it carefully.
Join the development
There may be a little voice inside your head that is telling you that you’re not ready; that your skills aren’t nearly good enough to contribute. What could you possibly offer? We assure you that the little voice in your head is wrong. Being a contributor doesn’t just mean writing code.
There are many ways to contribute:
- Submitting bug reports and feature requests
- Writing tutorials or examples
- Fixing typos and improving to the documentation
- Writing code for everyone to use
Why participate in open-source? There is much for you to gain from your participation:
- Connect with a welcoming global community
- Authorship on publications about our software
- Learn first-hand about software engineering
- Solve your own problems while benefiting the community
