Getting Started With Code Contribution

Code contribution is arguably the most valuable way you can contribute to the core project.

Warewolf Backlog

Warewolf has a team of core developers that are continuously developing the core system. We work from a product backlog ordered by item priority according to what needs to be done first.
If you would like to contribute to the core project, you are most welcome to contact us to discuss how you can contribute. We have a great backlog with a lot of challenging and fun coding tasks. We have tasks to suite every level of developer.

Agile Processes

Internally, we manage our development processes using agile methodologies. We run a 1 week sprint, a development backlog, scrum meetings daily, test driven development (TDD) and continuous integration. We aim to have a releasable version of Warewolf each sprint.


Our team will provide you with the help and guidance you need to get going. We also provide help and support via the Community Forum to answer any questions you might have.

Getting Started

You can read more about our team’s development process on The Contribution Process page.
