Talk to people at cons. Talk to other students in classes. Offer support on social media, chat servers, etc. Make content explaining things you didn’t understand at first. Remind people questions are always okay and never dumb. It doesn’t have to take much. Be welcoming!

What if one is afraid to speak to others at cons/classes? How to handle fear of interacting with other people in tech?

I've begun by "documenting the way I needed to be taught something I don't know and need to master". (Truly inspired by the Rust doc folks.)
