Amazing projects need amazing hands. We might not know you just yet, but we think you'd be a great fit for building a better web. Together, we're ready to change the world! Here at Phalcon, we're building a new generation framework for PHP; we want to give you an amazing performance while helping you develop in an easy and fun way.
We hope that you enjoy Phalcon as much as we do. We always welcome your collaboration and help! You don't have to be a C developer to help Phalcon! There are many other areas that you can contribute:
The repository of this website is available on github. We are using readthedocs to manage our documentation.
We always appreciate corrections, additions and enhancements in our documentation, so all you have to do is clone the repository and issue a pull request!
If you can help non English speaking developers by translating some of the content to another language, that would be great!
We are trying to reach as many developers as possible, breaking down the language barriers. We are using Transifex, to handle all the words or sentences that need to be translated for this site. The project repository is located here and below you can see the current status of our translation effort.
No software is free of bugs. If you find any, please do not hesitate to tell us. We have a test suite with more than 16,000 tests. However, unit-tests are never enough. Help us improve our test suite by adding more tests or improve the current ones. Every added test makes the framework more stable.
We all love screencasts. If you have some extra time and want to support the community with some nice videos teaching any of the framework's features, it's very welcome. Check out our Vimeo Channel as a guide.
There are a lot of people who still don't know that Phalcon exists or that it really works. We are certain that many developers will benefit from hearing what Phalcon is all about and how it can help them. If you know of any PHP events/meetings and you wish to give a talk about the project, you have our full support. Who wouldn't want to know about the tool that is revolutionizing PHP development?
Big examples help others to better understand how big things can be created with Phalcon. Feel free to share repositories to sample applications helping others with their work and allow others to give you feedback about your work too!
If you like writing, remember that our blog is open to post tutorials created by you. If you have a blog of your own and have written something about Phalcon, we can also publish in our social network pages so as to achieve maximum visibility. If your blog post is in a language other than English, we want to share it and potentially translate it if possible. If you know about blogs related to PHP that are interested in presenting the project to its audience please let us know.
Don't be shy, feel free to share the ways through which Phalcon was useful to you with the community. If Phalcon is a success case for you, let us share that with the community. Also, discuss what components needed extra work, what you could do easier, what benefits you got by using Phalcon. Although not everything can be implemented immediately, your input on new feature requests can greatly help us shape the future of the project. Your feedback helps us all.
Phalcon is evolving on a daily basis, through our desire to make it better. Social networks are part of our lives now, and we all interact with others through them. Sharing your Phalcon experience with your social circles will greatly increase the visibility of the project. More and more people will engage in our community, thus making it more powerful, even more feature rich and popular. Like, '+1', share posts that we constantly post on every social network, engage in discussions regarding those posts. People who discover Phalcon through your interactions will thank you!

We're a tiny but effective core team of developers working our tails off. We try to spend as much time as possible on the project. All our passion for this project makes us want to be better every day. Phalcon is open-sourced software and volunteer efforts are needed for its constant evolution. You can help us keep the development active by donating to the project or sponsoring the development. More time and resources dedicated to the project means more activity, more improvement, better support, more amazing features, etc.
We would like to thank all of our contributors and members of the community for pushing us to make Phalcon the best framework of its kind. Your kind words and engagement is what drives us to do better. We hope to meet and exceed the trust you put in Phalcon.
Thanks for flying with Phalcon! <3
