With the release this week of the Open Justice Broker under an open source license, we invite anyone with an interest in integrated justice and justice information sharing to participate and contribute.

First of all, please consider Membership. A range of options and benefits is available; see the Membership page for more information. Membership provides your organization with varying levels of access to the OJBC staff of technical and justice business experts, secures a spot for you in the annual OJB Implementers Conference (scheduled for Spring 2016), and supports the work of the Consortium so we can continue evolving the platform.

You can also join the developer and user mailing lists, where you can participate in discussions, ask questions, and interact. The OJBC staff participate in these forums too, so find us there and don’t hesitate to ask lots of questions!

If you are more technically inclined, we invite you to clone the main repository and build the components. In the coming weeks, we will post a how-to guide with step-by-step instructions for building a working demo application.
