Contribute to Documentation

Good software requires great documentation and Ubuntu is always looking for community members willing to lend their writing skills to the project. Community documentation, like the page you’re reading right now, is the product of a collaborative effort between Canonical and Ubuntu community members.

Documentation Practice

At Canonical, we have embarked on a comprehensive, long-term project to transform documentation. Our aim is to create and maintain documentation product and practice that will represent a standard of excellence. We want documentation to be the best it possibly can be.
