Welcome to the Rokwire Community! We are the open-source community for the Rokwire Initiative and the Smart, Healthy Communities Initiative

Explore, connect, learn, and collaborate to become a community member. People become community members (builders that build community) by contributing ideas and other technical expertise. People become contributors (contributors to the code base) by working with code.



Get started in the community by viewing these resources. The contributor guide will help you get oriented, and the Wiki and Video Tutorials will assist you with technical knowledge and guidance.
