Github has posed a “Creating a new contributor on-ramp” blog post yesterday. The entire post is worth a read, and is likely things we have already discussed in our onboarding meeting and in discussion about our online presence. The thing that struck me the most was the six steps that a user usually takes when progressing into a project. Discover, Setup tools, Learn skills, Identify tasks, Get help, and Feel appreciated. These are all areas for which we have information, but as was mentioned in the meeting, they are not always easy to find. I really like the graphic they have in this post, and feel like we could make an awesome community portal along the lines of this, and etc.

At the upcoming community meeting (March 16) we will have a discussion about how to facilitate onboarding into the community. Please come with examples, anecdotes, and etc of good practices for this that you have seen in other communities. Also think about your own experience joining the community or bringing others in, and reflect on what did and didn’t work.
