Why contribute as an agency?
Contributing to the community means being a part of something bigger, and that's the Umbraco ecosystem. In being actively involved in the community, you're in the know on a whole other level, plus you're contributing to the future of Umbraco.
Give your developers a space to thrive
Though it's not just developers that make up our community, there is an abundance of developers from all backgrounds and skillsets.
The 'open-source attitude' of our community means continuous knowledge sharing among like-minded peers. That means happier, more skilled developers!
Solve issues through contribution and collaboration
Let others' ideas inspire you, and build on them to create an even better solution for everyone. Offer help, and you'll have it returned in some way. In the Umbraco community, what benefits one will likely benefit many.
Make a name for yourself
By contributing to the CMS, and being involved in the community, you're showing others in the Umbraco ecosystem how dedicated, knowledgeable and approachable you are as an agency.
