Doing and Saying for Non-Developers

I often see the odd post about how non-developers can contribute.....

Well as an non-developer I can tell you there are plenty....

  1. Write docs.
  2. Qa.
  3. Design.
  4. Tell people about Ubuntu.
I will expand on these points briefly.

1. Can you write in English? How about another language? Yes...
Then you can write documents and become part of the Docs team, also you get to feel the buzz of contributing back to your distro of choice.

2. Can you install Ubuntu? Find faults? Write a structured bug report? Yes...
Then you can become part of the QA team and help the developers by triaging bugs and installing iso's a few days before milestones to help catch bugs before joe public does.

3. Are you an artist? Yes...
Well Ubuntu needs you.

4. Failing all the above have you thought that spreading the word about how good Ubuntu is, is a contribution in itself. Who knows the next brilliant developer, bug triager, scribe or designer could be joe bloggs who you recommended Ubuntu too.

So never say you can't contribute there's just no excuse :)

Thanks for your time.... Now go contribute and get that warm fuzzy feeling...

LRLUS was just the preliminaries. Now Cometh The Hour, Now Cometh The Men.....

LRL 2008 UK Friday night kicks it all off and it only gets better from there :)

Be There To Say Farewell To The Four Large Gents.
