What it means to contribute
Even if you don´t write code or conduct meetings, other types of contributions are a great way to get involved and meet other community members.

Building those relationships will give you opportunities to work on several projects and connect with team members. There are all sorts of ways to get involved that will help you get the most out of your experience.
