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.
Within GNOME there are many areas where you can contribute and a plethora of skills that are appreciated.
