##Open Sourced - Get Involved

This website is open sourced so that the community can get involved in its development and contribute whatever they can. Please refer to the GitHub Issues to view a list of bugs or suggested improvements. Feel free to work on these, then when you've committed the changes send a pull request or attach it to the related issue so we can merge it in.

Ideas for Features or Improvements

We're open to ideas about improving the Belfast Ruby website. Here's a couple ideas we've come up with so far. Add your own or work on bringing these ideas to life.

  • Update the resources page with Ruby related links that you find useful
  • Have a section for links to each speaker's slides/companion notes
  • Pull in related Instagram or Flickr images for each meetup

Even if you aren't interested in contributing code, we'd love if you could suggest any ideas for improvements or let us know via GitHub Issue if you run into any bugs.
