Welcome to the GNOME stand!

Learn about the latest developments in the GNOME desktop environment! At the GNOME booth, you can check out live demos of GNOME 41 and GTK 4, get help using GNOME, and learn more about paid GNOME internship opportunities. During our themed chat hours, you'll be able to engage and talk directly with GNOME developers, designers, Board of Directors members, Foundation staff, and other community members. Ask us your questions or just pop in to say "Hi" and chat! Take a look at our chat schedule below to see what our topics are and when you can join them.


People visiting our stand will have the opportunity to meet GNOME members and fellow Community members, discuss new features, address questions, issues, or hang out. No prior experience using GNOME is needed, and people who are looking for new contribution opportunities are more than welcome!

Grab some digital GNOME SWAG! Find downloadable sticker art and badges at gnome.org/online-swag.
