The Open edX Core Contributor Program is a program that grants specific types of access to Open edX community members to enable them to further the development and adoption of the Open edX platform. Rights and responsibilities vary from role to role, which are defined on the https://openedx.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/COMM/pages/2759460357 page. Core Contributors may variously help with translations, market the Open edX platform, serve as project managers, write code to advance the Open edX software, and more.
Core Contributors earn their designation by active participation in the Open edX community - writing code, serving on working groups, contributing high-quality translations, and many other ways. In general, people wishing to be Core Contributors need to show sustained, active performance in the role prior to being nominated for consideration in the Program. We call this the “3 Cs”: Commitment, Conduct, Caliber. These people follow the Code of Conduct, are respectful of other community members, and are generally polite and welcoming. That means if you wish to be a Core Contributor, you should begin by joining the Open edX project and participate in a way that’s meaningful to you. Reach out to us if you don’t know how to begin!
