OVERVIEW

Share your creation with the open source community

The DevHigh5 program simplifies the process of contributing open source code and projects. The program provides guidance to ensure projects are developed in the best interest of the community, are completely open source and transparent, and fully consumable by a wide range of users and organizations.

DevHigh5 Projects

The technology world is rapidly changing and open source software is playing a significant role. {code} believes in open source software and is here to share and collaborate with developers worldwide.

{code} welcomes anyone that wants to contribute code to better use modern technology. We also work with existing (or future) Dell Technologies customers to highlight their projects.

How can you contribute?

The process involves just 5 simple steps, with expanded details provided here.

  1. Open Development
  2. Documentation
  3. Open Testing
  4. Verify Requirements
  5. Deploy to {code} on GitHub (if needed)

What's in it for contributors?

There are lots of great reasons to contribute:

  • The personal satisfaction of developing software that can help solve problems.
  • Recognition by the community for your contributions.
  • Engagement with other community members to solve other challenges and learn new technologies.
  • Recognition by the {code} team for your contributions – some cool {code} swag.
  • Potentially helping customers and partners by augmenting the Dell Technologies they deploy and operate.

Who supports the projects?

Like with most open source projects, they are community supported. Active support via the contributors and community has proven to create more robust software.

What if I'm not a developer or my coding skills aren't great?

Not a problem. While we believe that growing those coding skills will help your career, there are other ways to help the program:

  • Try out the code/tools/scripts/samples – feedback is valuable. Use it as a reason to experiment with learning about Git and Github.
  • Make a video of you using the code – great way to share your knowledge with a broad audience. Send the link in a tweet to @codeDellEMC.
  • Write a blog about your experience with things on {code}. Send the link in a tweet to @codeDellEMC.
  • Include something about {code} in a presentation to get people excited about the opportunities to contribute.
  • Tell a friend about {code} and follow @codedellemc so you can keep up with what's new.

How can I ask more questions or get more details?

All the links you need are included on the {code} GitHub page, or you can join us on Slack in the {code} Community or send an email to [email protected].
