High Fidelity is completely open source, so if you want to contribute to our current code, you can do so. We also pay contributors for the work they do through Worklist, our tool for tracking your contributions.
On This Page
Worklist displays all available part-time jobs and projects at High Fidelity. If you’re interested in any of the projects listed here, you can bid on it by setting the amount you'd like to get paid. If we accept your bid, then you can begin development and get paid for the work you do. For more information, see our Worklist FAQs.
The process for a Workflow project goes like this:
When we have verified your work and merged it into the main repository, we will change the status of your project to 'Merged' and process your payment.
High Fidelity's code repository is available on GitHub. This repository contains the source to many of the components in our virtual world platform. The project embraces distributed development.
Technology companies frequently receive and use code from contributors outside the company's development team. Outside code can be a tremendous resource, but it also carries responsibility. Best practice for accepting outside contributions consists of an Apache-type Contributor License Agreement (CLA). We have modeled the High Fidelity CLA after the CLA that Google presents to developers for contributions to their projects. This CLA does not transfer ownership of code, instead simply granting a non-exclusive right for High Fidelity to use the code you’ve contributed. In that regard, you should be sure you have permission if the work relates to or uses the resources of a company that you work for. You will be asked to sign our CLA when you create your first PR or when the CLA is updated. You can also review it here. We sincerely appreciate your contribution and efforts toward the success of the platform.
In order to work with us, we require that you set the
HIFI_TESTER environment variable on your computer. This method will persist even if you continue to reinstall High Fidelity, delete your app data or change your IP address. It won't affect your local machine in any way.
