Become part of the Rails family

The community around Ruby on Rails is full of nice people who
want to help others learn. Become a part of the family, learn from
others, and give something back when you can.

Mailing lists

Ruby on Rails Talk is where Rails users come to seek help, announce projects, and discuss all kind of matters surrounding the framework and the community. If you’re working on a patch, you can raise issues on the core list. Finally, there’s the security announcement list for critical patches.

Twitter & Blogs

Follow along what people are saying about Rails on Twitter. It’s a direct hook into the pulse of Rails.

IRC

Sometimes it’s just easier to get help or discuss matters in real time. The #rubyonrails channel on irc.freenode.net allows for just that. Try #rails-contrib if you want help or discuss your patch to Rails itself.
