Getting Involved as a User

FDO users include those developing applications that use the FDO API and FDO Providers. At this level, users can download and install the software, join and participate in the mailing lists (using the links below), browse the mailing list archives, browse the source code in Subversion, and access all of the documentation and information on this site.

Join the Mailing Lists

Join the mailing lists to learn what other users are doing with FDO, ask questions, get answers, and when you get comfortable jump in and answer questions. The fdo-users mailing list provides a wealth of information for all FDO users from novices to experts. Find out about new releases and events related to FDO on the fdo-announce mailing list. Subscription information can be found through these links:
