Contribute to Qt

The Qt Project governs the open source development of Qt. It allows anybody wanting to contribute to join the effort, through a meritocratic structure of approvers and maintainers.

All development will be driven by the people contributing to the project. To learn more, visit the resources linked on this site and subscribe to our mailing-lists.

Support Users

Helpful people are at the center of every great community, and everyone needs a bit of help sometimes. Whether it is a specific programming problem or more general guidance required, there are many ways to share knowledge and support others.

Report Bugs

Meaningful bug reports and comments help improve the quality of Qt in a very direct way, while voting and triaging help to prioritize tasks. We encourage Qt users and Qt contributors to join efforts on the bug tracker.

Write Documentation and Tutorials

Qt has great official documentation. Now everyone can contribute to it, in the same way they can contribute code to Qt itself. In addition, there are also other ways for contributors who enjoy writing about technology.

Do Community Work

There are plenty of important tasks to keep things going smoothly within the larger Qt community. No matter if you prefer online or IRL interactions, there is something for you.

Write Qt Code

Naturally, the Qt Project is mostly about code. There are plenty of ways to contribute code, to learn and grow, and to build one’s reputation. To get started contributing code, get in touch with the relevant module maintainer before you start on a patch.

Join us!

Whatever it is that catches your interest, we happily welcome you in the Qt community. Talk to us on IRC and join our mailing lists — even if you haven’t it all figured out yet.

Legal Aspects

Every open source project comes with legal considerations. Here are ours.
