Welcome to the SugarCRM Developer Wiki. This wiki will detail working with GitHub to contribute changes back to SugarCRM.

How to get started

If you want to begin to participate in the SugarCRM community development process, you’ll need to set up your development environment and then you can provide a code contribution to SugarCRM thru Github. If you are new to git and Github, you can also go thru the Git Crash Course to help you get started.

Upcoming Events

Code Sprints

See this blog post for the lineup of sprints for the first half of 2012



We do monthly webinars, normally on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, where we talk about what’s going on with SugarCRM and with the community. We also record each month’s sessions for viewing afterwards.

NEPO Systems demo ( Wednesday, February 15th at 11:00am US Eastern Time )

For this month’s webinar, we’ll have SugarCRM partner NEPO Systems on hand. They will be demonstrating a variety of cool enhancements they have made to SugarCRM. Time permitting the demonstration may include some of these SugarCRM addons they have developed:

  • Chitter – Real Time social collaboration within SugarCRM
