Three ways to promote yourself on drupal.org

Drupal has one of the biggest open source communities in the world with over 885 000 registered users from 228 different countries. Drupal.org is, at this point, the most popular Drupal learning resource and help center for any Drupal developer of any skill level - from junior to advanced.

Besides assistance, drupal.org is also a good place to promote yourself as a Drupal developer. Read on to find out more about three basic ways to promote yourself among the Drupal Community.


Drupal Case Studies

Drupal Case Studies

Drupal’s market share among content management system using websites is around 8.8%. Drupal is also one of the most trusted and reliable CMS in the world. Such big sites as The Economist and White House would not use it if it wasn’t. Drupal Case Studies is a section of the drupal.org website where you can describe the development process of a website powered by Drupal. A good case study will always draw attention and positive feedback from the community. Therefore it may represent a good PR for the development team and the project itself. To get an idea about the best case study writing habits check the Drupal case study guidelines or see an example of a case study written for a project developed by Propeople.

Drupal Planet

Drupal Planet

If you have a blog or a website where you write articles and tutorials about Drupal then you should consider applying for Drupal Planet. Planet Drupal aggregates broadly appealing, Drupal-related blog posts pertaining to the community at large (code, advocacy, marketing, infrastructure etc.). There are a few requirements you must follow in order to get accepted and show up in the Drupal Planet feed list. Your blog doesn’t have to be 100% Drupal related, but there should be at least a few Drupal related articles posted once in awhile.

Contribute to Drupal Community

Drupal Community

There is a lot we owe to the Drupal Community and its contributors. They are the reason why the modules we install and Drupal itself work smoother, saving us lots of time that we can use for creating cool stuff instead of fixing bugs and recovering after a mental breakout every time we actually manage to fix one. To get appreciated by other Drupal developers, you should also become one of those guys that contribute with his time and skills to help others. Find out more about how you can get involved into making Drupal an even better open source content management system than it already is. Great things happen because of proactive people who are always ready to help. These people create communities in order to put their minds together and make a difference. Drupal is one of those communities.
