The Community Recognition Program is a way for Cadence to recognize community participation. By sharing your real-world expertise and broadening your knowledge, you will earn points and increase your reputation.
We encourage you to give answers as well as seek answers. You’ll both expand your skill set and help others expand theirs, and that expansion will be visible and valuable to the entire community.
So, join in. Start a conversation. Ask a question. Be the reason that a question gets solved. And last but not least, don’t forget to have fun!
Each time you perform a specific action in the community forums, you’ll earn points.
