A very warm welcome to the GNOME project. We want everyone to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. For this, the GNOME community prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. To learn more about how you can find support and what is expected from contributors, please have a look at our GNOME Code of Conduct.
In GNOME we use Matrix chat to hang out together and discuss projects. You can get started in the #newcomers room or directly reach out in a more specific chat room.
You can begin or continue your journey with GNOME with a three-month remote internship including mentoring and a stipend. You can both choose from suggested projects or suggest your own.

GSoC is an online mentoring program focused on introducing new contributors to open source software development.
There are adapted contribution guides available for all GNOME Core and Circle apps. If you are not sure where to contribute, consider trying an app that you use yourself. Try to solve something that is important to you or where you feel an inner motivation.
