Weekly Welcome 13 December, 2019

Hello GitHub Community Forum!

In this weekly post, we like to welcome new members to the GitHub Community Forum and make it easy to find out about some of the week’s hottest topics and important events.

Please make yourself at home and start exploring all the different areas of the Community Forum. We have some great resources to help you get started; you can find those listed in our Community Forum Resources. You can also find out about current and future events by checking out the information below.

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. We look forward to hearing from you.


This Week’s Happenings

Helpful and popular topics:


From the GitHub Blog

IP allow lists now in public beta

IP allow lists gives you the ability to limit access to enterprise assets to an allowed set of source IPs, and it’s now available in public beta for GitHub Enterprise Cloud customers.

Behind the scenes: GitHub security alerts

If you have code on GitHub, chances are that you’ve had a security vulnerability alert at some point. Since the feature launched, GitHub has sent more than 62 million security alerts for vulnerable dependencies. Come see how this feature works!

Note: If you want to say “hi” to your fellow Community members, we encourage you to do so! However, please say hello in a reply to this Topic, instead of opening a brand new Topic. We try to reserve Topics for specific questions, idea discussion, or information sharing. Moving forward, any “Hello”-type Topics will be locked, and the author will be redirected to the most recent Weekly Welcome to introduce themselves to the Community.

Welcome John,

We are happy you are here!


Hi, I just joined! I wanted to join GitHub in hopes of improving my HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Web design skill set (Plus any new Web programming I can learn along the way).

Hi @patn237! Welcome!

We are glad to have you hear.  You’ll find some interesting web development and design resources along your GitHub travels.
