Most of our day-to-day chat has moved to #openlibrary-g -- a public channel on our archive.org slack. If you'd like to be apart of the conversation here, please let us know here.

Assuming you meet some basic activity requirements, we'll gladly send you an invite!

If your email is not public, please send an email to mek@archive.org so we can add you.

@mekarpeles I feel it would be better if we put this maybe in the README rather than over here as it's too many tabs for a contributor to traverse through to find this! We already have put out Gitter Channel link on the README, so maybe we could have that first-time contributors can ask questions on the Gitter channel and then get added to the Slack channel. As in this entire thing could be one process!

What do you think about it?

I'd be interested, though I'm not sure how much I can contribute as a non-developer.

@seabelis, if you send me an email mek@archive.org we'd be happy to invite you to our slack channel. Designers and librarians are still developers and we're happy to receive input and contributions from everyone! Thanks for lending your voice :) and amazing job with the logos, this was such a big help.

Hello Everyone, I am a Web Developer student at DevMountain Bootcamp and I am building a React application for a project assignment that uses the Open Library API to search books and display results. I am thinking that in the future I could potentially convert this to React Native as a mobile application. Here is my project (still work in progress): https://github.com/LoganSimonsen/no-db-project

Do you know if anyone has built a mobile application already for Open Library?

@LoganSimonsen @rchrd2 started working on a proof of concept for a progressive mobile web app -- you may want to comment and tag him on this project https://github.com/ArchiveLabs/openlibrary-lite

I am a mobile developer with some js experience, i am looking to contribute to a project where i will also have a chance to learn. I also love the work openlibrary is doing. I am hoping to set up and look through the first issues in coming days.

@mekarpeles maybe we should think of redirecting to a readme as said by @salman-bhai as i was redirected by this link https://archive.org/about/volunteerpositions.php so we should change the link to our contributors guide

Hi, I just got to find out about archive.org today and It was really helpful for what I needed to do at that moment. Although I may not be able to make a reasonable donation, I will like to help out in the area of development. I am a full-stack JS developer and can comfortably work with PHP and Python also. If you need extra hands as volunteers, I will be glad to help out. Email: amadiluckysampson@gmail.com

@w3bh4ck and @viccro are our last invites for the time being!

We have a large number of guests in our openlibrary slack channel who are are inactive and because of this, future invitations will require at least 1 contribution to Open Library. :)

Contributions might include code / PRs or code reviews, design, improvements to our documentation / wiki organization, fixes to book catalog data, adding new issues, QA testing.

@3srliton Before getting involved you must solve at least one issue. This is done so that only motivated individuals are invited to the slack channel and it avoids overcrowding of the slack channels too

Hey I'm interested in helping with the backend in possibly squishing some bugs. I'm totally new to open source development and still a bit new to python but I still think I could be able to be some sort of help. (EDIT: I just went through reading some of these, I'll work on solving an issue first.)

A first great step is trying to get docker running -- if you're open to trying, we'd love to know if you experience any trouble!
