And if you’re so inclined, don’t forget to say hello!* If you’re new here, reply to this topic and introduce yourself. You can share a little about who you are, what language you like to code in or learn more about, what you want to learn about using GitHub, and/or what you hope to get out of the Community Forum.

Hi @ashureiziger,

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum! We’re glad you’re here.

I would suggest opening a topic in the Project Development Help and Advice board and share your goals and community members may be able to provide what languages have helped them to accomplish similar goals. 

You may also want to check out the GitHub Learning Lab to learn while in your repository. 


Hello @adj1125,

Welcome to the GitHub Community Forum! Happy to have you here.

My hope is that this community will help you feel right at home.  :smiley:

If you have specific questions, feel free to post on the board representing that topic. 

I will also suggest the GitHub Learning Lab to help get familiar with different topics. 


Hi everyone!

I downloaded GitHub around 2013 and never really did anything with it until now… So I just wanted to leave a message and say hi. If you guys can point me to any data science discussions or projects, I’d greatly appreciate it. 

Have a great weekend!
