Users and practitioners

We have created a Users page to share organizations that have adopted SAMM and a Practitioners page to list companies providing SAMM services.

Contact us if you want to be listed so we can all get an idea of who is using SAMM and how that’s working for them.

GitHub issues

All of SAMM’s content is on Github .

We use

SAMM on GitHub

Familiar with GitHub?

To make changes to either, follow these steps:

  1. Create a branch from one of our repositories
  2. Make changes and push the branch to GitHub
  3. Create a pull request and add someone in the SAMM core team as a reviewer

Once the changes are approved, someone from the team will merge that branch to the main branch of the corresponding repository.

Not familiar with GitHub?

GitHub is a company that provides hosting for software development version control using Git.
If you’ve never used Git or GitHub you can always use the regular channels for feedback.

Read our blog post on how SAMM is doing CI/CD.

What is Hugo?

Hugo is a static site generator written in Go, a statically typed, compiled programming language. It integrates well with GitHub and allows us to automatically build the site every time we make changes.


We’ve started using Crowdin for localization management. We want to have the SAMM model available in as many languages as possible.
Visit our project page on Crowdin to start contributing.
