Where should I start?

OpenStack is a large community, and it can seem overwhelming when you don't know where to start. The best way to approach it is to get involved with a specific project, working group or local meetup.

Don't worry! We're here to help.

We want you to have a great experience. OpenStack Foundation staff and volunteer ambassadors around the world are here to help you get plugged in and make an impact.
