Quality Assurance (QA)
The QA team makes sure the NetBeans IDE & Platform work as advertised. This includes building and maintaining a suite of automated tests, a regular community acceptance testing propram, as well as maintenance of the bug database. See the QA team pages to find out more.
The NetBeans Dream Team
The NetBeans Dream Team is a community-driven group of highly skilled NetBeans users. They participate at NetBeans developer events, on mailing lists and developer forums, providing new, interesting and informative content as well as developing new and creative ways to teach and promote NetBeans products. They are experts in one or more areas of NetBeans IDE or NetBeans Platform and act as a local representative for NetBeans users in their area and for their skill set.
The Evangelism team is responsible for the promotion of the NetBeans project (including tradeshows, conferences, press, regional activities, education, books, etc.), the product information content of the netbeans.org website, and other marketing activities. To see how you can join and participate see the Evangelism team pages.
The Web team makes sure the NetBeans.org website, forums and wiki are state-of-the-art sources of information for the NetBeans community. They highlight news, videos and tutorials on the frontpage and in news feeds, make expert interviews and announcements, and write release and feature descriptions. The website uses the Project Kenai infrastructure with a custom NetBeans look&feel. See the Web team pages to find out more.
For every release, the Documentation team writes the integrated product help that you can consult right in the IDE (Help menu or press F1). Additionally, this team also creates all the Quick Starts, tutorials, sample projects, and video demos that you find online under Docs & Support and on Platform.NetBeans.org. To see how you can join and participate check out the Community Docs program.
