The SAFE Network is an Open Source and collaborative effort between developers and the community using it. You can get involved by testing, suggesting, coding, or promoting. Here’s how.
The SAFE Network community is comprised of thousands of people from all over the world passionate about the unfettered access and sharing of data.
Safenetforum.org is the main discussion forum of this growing community and is a great place to help test new releases by the development teams, receive support, discuss the latest Internet trends and read the weekly dev updates. To meet others in person, take a look at the various meetups taking place around the world.Join the Community
The SAFE Browser is the Network’s dedicated web browser. Use it to access the Alpha test network—just download and start browsing.Download Now
SAFE represents a step change in technology, and how we’ll all interact with the web and our own data. A leap as big as this requires continuous testing and feedback from the people who it is designed for—and that’s where you can help.
The network is currently in Alpha testing, meaning that it lacks some features, and will contain bugs that could make the network unstable. By running these earlier versions and providing feedback via the forum you will be not only helping to improve future releases, you will be helping to shape the new Internet.
When you are ready to use Apps, or to try adding data to the Alpha network, you’ll use the browser’s built in Authenticator to create and manage your Safe Account.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting up and running.
The SAFE Network is a platform for creating decentralised applications. It is secure, privacy focussed, has a built-in revenue stream, and next to no infrastructure costs.
If you’re interested in developing apps you will find all the tools you need on our DevHub, such as key concepts, APIs and documentation.Visit the DevHub
You can also get involved by helping to maintain the Networks underlying open source libraries. As we reach beta launch it will be possible to be compensated in Safecoin for fixing bugs, optimising code and developing new features.
In addition to the developer hub, we also have a growing developer community. It’s a great way to get support and collaborate.Developer Forum
