Welcome to the Sugar Labs wiki
The Sugar Labs wiki is where our community comes together to develop and support the Sugar Learning Platform.
New Learners, Parents, Teachers, and Students
Sugar users are Learners. If you are visiting for the first time, please see www.sugarlabs.org for an introduction to Sugar.
Want to help? We're always looking for people who want to join the Sugar Labs community. We are a group of contributors of all types - teachers, writers, coders, designers, testers, and more - who work together to further the development and deployment of the Sugar Learning Platform around the world. Visit the Getting Involved page, and find out how you can join in the fun of learning. We have some Vacancies and are always looking for maintainers and testers.
If you have Sugar and are looking for new Activities, please see the Sugar Activity Library.
