Newcomer Experience Survey

Did you first start contributing to GNOME after January 2010? Then you must still remember the confusion and the clarity, the friendly people and the trolls you encountered on your path. Please take Kevin Carillo‘s well-researched survey about your experience as a newcomer and how it shaped you as a contributor.

The collected data will be released under a ‘share-alike’ Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL) and the published materials about the research will be publicly available. The results of this research will be of great interest to everyone in Free and Open Source Software and your response would help ensure that we have a comprehensive set of data about newcomer experiences in GNOME. Thank you!
