Ways to Participate

Help make the Second Life Viewer better! You don't need to know C++ or even programming to help. Some of the toughest jobs in software development have nothing to do with writing code. Just grab a test build and try playing around with it. Let us know what you think on email, on the forum, or IRC. If it's not working for you, try to get help there. If it is working, try helping someone else. If you run into issues, see if a bug report has been filed; if not, file one.

Of course, if you are a developer, we can use your help. Download the code - try your hand at fixing a bug, or extending the software through one of the APIs. There's a ton of ways you can help, and we welcome you regardless of your skill level.
