Most discussion about Druid happens over email and GitHub.
Third party companies also provide commercial support and services for Druid, including:
Druid is a community-led project and we are delighted to receive contributions of anything from minor fixes to big new features.
If you have an itch to scratch, then by all means do that! Fixing bugs you run into, or adding features you need, are both immensely helpful.
If you're looking for some starter projects, we maintain a list of issues suitable for new developers.
There are plenty of ways to help outside writing Druid code. Code review of pull requests (even if you are not a committer), feature suggestions, reporting bugs, documentation and usability feedback all matter immensely. Another big way to help is through client libraries, which are avaialble in a variety of languages. If you develop a new one, we'll be happy to include it in the list.
Patches to Druid are done through GitHub pull requests.
Pull requests require one approval (+1) from an established committer on code and text (for documentation) levels. The exception is major architectural changes or API changes, and/or changes to
warrant additional design and compatibility review. Such pull requests require design approvals from three different committers (one of them could also be the author of the pull request). For those, it can help to discuss things on the Druid development list firstname.lastname@example.org or a github issue beforehand.
In general please follow the contributing guidelines when sending in pull requests. This will help review proceed as quickly as possible.
For code contributions, we require that you agree to a Contributor License Agreement (CLA) before we can accept your code. You can find our CLA on and sign it directly on our CLA page
