Support the community

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

With millions of Docker users all over the world, there’s always someone who needs a helping hand. Like many open source projects, the Docker project relies on community support channels like forums, IRC, and StackOverflow. You should contribute mentoring if you have good knowledge of:

  • how open source projects run
  • using Docker in some particular domain (for example, testing or deployment)
  • using Git, Go, GitHub, IRC, or other common tools

Also, choose mentoring if you like to be happy. Studies show that helping others is a great way to boost your own well being.
