In order to maintain KDE's community and its projects healthy and growing in the future, we need to ensure that we continuously attract new contributors and get more people involved. The aim of this initiative is to find ways to help new contributors to not only make their first contributions, but also feel comfortable with the community and its procedures, stay engaged for longer periods, connect with fellow contributors and work their way into becoming dedicated contributors to the projects of their interest.
Several projects are already making steps towards this goal. KDEConnect and Elisa developers are identifying junior jobs that newcomers can take up as their first contributions. The Plasma Mobile team has gone even further, as they have prepared an interactive guide on getting involved and a comprehensive tutorial on setting up a development environment that can be found both here and here.
If you are attending Akademy 2018, KDE's annual community event, make sure to watch the related talk.
