We put a lot into making our community a welcoming place, but we need to better understand what works and what doesn't. So please, give us your thoughts in this anonymous form, we'll post the results at the end and we can all learn about ourselves!
The form will remain open until early March, but don't wait to respond!
We have a welcoming "workflow" that supports you in getting started, then helps you reach out to welcome someone else in turn!
We've prepared extra-welcoming "first timers only" issues just for you.
Use your new skills to assist someone else who's just starting out. Browse issues below to see who needs help!

(Also: Learn how to help turn these into first-timers-only issues to help keep welcoming people in!
Once you've completed a first-timers-only issue, there are plenty of other challenges we'd love to have your help on.
In "Candidates" above, there are some issues we think would make good first-timers-only issues, but haven't finished formatting. They could make a good second-time contribution!
After finishing a first-timers-only issue, you're uniquely suited to help others make their own first contribution. We'd love to help you welcome another new person into our community! Here are some ways to help:
Create your own first-timers-only issue to welcome others into the project.
Also consider other ways you can support even without coding!
