Participating in the Community: Beyond Code
So, you've learned a bit about how to use Solr, just enough to be dangerous (as they say), but you're not really a Java programmer. Can you still participate in the community? Absolutely!

Much of the work we see going on in the Solr community is in the form of patches to the core codebase (or in contribs!), but any good open source community is larger than that. Good documentation, a professional website, a solid UI, and a strong base of users who help each other are all factors in a robust community.
