The SolidFire Developer Community is a platform that allows SolidFire customers, partners, and employees to interact directly on all topics relevant to developing against the SolidFire platform.

Humans as a whole are very social creatures. We look to one another for guidance, advice, and input on previous experiences. We see this in platforms like Twitter and Facebook as well as services like Yelp and TripAdvisor.

Those in the technology industry are very familiar with working in digital communities. Social tools have come a long way from Usenet, but the need for community engagement in this industry has remained consistent and strong.

SolidFire is very focused on the success of our customers and partners. As such, we regularly look to find ways to ensure success. Our latest effort is our SolidFire Developer Community available at http://developer.solidfire.com.

The SolidFire Developer Community is a platform that allows SolidFire customers, partners, and employees to interact directly on all topics relevant to developing against the SolidFire platform. SolidFire architects and engineers participate alongside our partners and customers to engage in discussions on how to get the most value out of SolidFire’s extensibility and integrations.

At the heart of the community is collaboration, along with our GitHub Repo at github.com/solidfire. SolidFire continues to release integrations to leverage our full-featured API, such as our most recent PowerShell Tools and Java software development kit. We see the success of our partners and customers as paramount and look forward to engaging with them, helping to answer their questions, and to maximize the value of their investment in SolidFire.

Doing what’s never been done before has always been at the heart of SolidFire. Please join us at developer.solidfire.com to share your story, work through any questions you have, and collaborate with your peers to do amazing things. We’re looking forward to your contributions!
