We make Rails better.

Rails is improving every year from the work of thousands of volunteers contributing in ways big and small. Everyone can help make this framework better whether they’ve been using it since the beginning or they just started yesterday.

Meet the Core team.

The direction of the framework is stewarded by the Rails Core. This group of long-term contributors manage releases, evaluate pull-requests, handle conduct complaints, and does a lot of the groundwork on major new features.

The Committers.

The Committer team assists with processing pull requests and making changes to the framework, but does not have the keys to make final releases or set policy. All members of the Core team came up through working on this team: Akira Matsuda, Eugene Kenny, Gannon McGibbon, Jonathan Hefner, Yasuo Honda

The Issues team.

The Issues team assists with issues triage, pull request reviews and documentation improvements. They are often the first point of interaction of users with the Rails team: Adam Hess, Adrianna Chang, Alex Ghiculescu, Edouard Chin, Haroon Ahmed, Hartley McGuire, John Crepezzi, Jorge Manrubia, Keeran Raj Hawoldar, Leo Correa, Mike Dalessio, Petrik de Heus, Prem Sichanugrist, Robin Dupret, Vipul A M, Zak Scott

The Alumni.

We’d like to extend special thanks to the following Rails Core team members, lovingly known as The Alumni: George Claghorn, Santiago Pastorino, Yves Senn, Godfrey Chan, Michael Koziarski, José Valim, Yehuda Katz, Jon Leighton, Josh Peek, Carl Lerche, Pratik Naik, Jamis Buck, Marcel Molina, Nicholas Seckar, Sam Stephenson, Florian Weber, Scott Barron, Tobias Lütke, Rick Olson

And everyone else in between!

On top of these formal teams, there are thousands of code contributors. We’ve tracked everyones work on the Rails Contributors site. The community also cherishes all the people who contribute in other important ways to have a sound community, including documentation, evangelism, organizing, and more.

Thank you to all who volunteer their time to improve Rails! ❤️
