This pages provides an overview of the various teams working on Godot Engine. If you want to know who works on what, who to get in contact with on a topic, which people should review a particular Pull Request or similar - this is a good first stop.

Engine teams are listed by engine area, with a few keywords describing what belongs to that area and a link to the teams chat channel, followed by a list of the members of that team (names and GitHub handles). For some larger areas, subteams exist for parts of that area.
Names in bold with a ⭐ emoji are the main contributors in charge of a given area, who typically lead the team work and can merge Pull Requests in their area of expertise.

If you want to get in touch, use the link to each team's chat channel on the Godot Engine Contributors chat after the team's names (see Community).
For general development discussions which may not fit a specific team channel, use the general purpose #devel channel.
For general enquiries, private or security related matters, have a look at the Contact page.

General areas

Categorizing the engine development in discrete teams is not easy! This section includes some broad areas which have an influence on all engine subsystems, and where many contributors are active without necessarily being responsible for all the features that their team encompasses.
Some more specialized teams are then listed in the Systems section.

Core • #core
