The Helm community abides by the CNCF code of conduct. Here is an excerpt:
As contributors and maintainers of this project, and in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other activities.
Most real time discussion happens at #helm-users.
There is also a #helm-dev channel for discussing development of Helm.
Discussions on these channels are archived at kubernetes.slackarchive.io.
Issues are used as the primary method for tracking anything to do with the Helm project.
Development announcements and discussions appear on the Helm mailing list

We have a weekly development meeting every Thursday at 9:30am US Pacific Time and all are welcome.
Map that to your local time with this timezone table.
We keep notes from each meeting on this document for summaries of standups, discussion, and action items.
Helm is one of the projects, represented at CloudNativeCon/KubeCon, held three times per year in Europe, Asia and North America. Information about these and other community events is available on the CNCF events pages.
Also, the Helm community organizes the Helm-focused event - Helm Summit, first edition of which has happened in Portland, Oregon in February 2018.
