There is a common misconception that you have to be a programmer in order to contribute to Drupal. This is untrue; even those with little or no prior knowledge of code can contribute to the community in ways that will help make Drupal better. In fact, this is what happens all the time: people support the Drupal community by organizing events, answering questions, and sponsoring development sprints—all examples of vital non-code contributions that the community needs to grow. Non-code contributions, such as mentorship and writing documentation, are ideal ways to develop and grow one’s skills in coding and configuring Drupal. Growing the community means, on the one hand, growing the infrastructure and number of people and, on the other, growing the capabilities of people in the community.
