Hello GitHub Community Forum

This is our Weekly Welcome, where we’d 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 Community Forum resources to help you get started. 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.

† 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.

Hi- I’m brand new to GitHub and I’ve been learning programming (so far HTML, CSS & Javascript/jQuery) for about 8 months. I’ve gotten to the point I can create relatively simple web pages with these 3 languages and I want to learn more. The goal is to be able to hold myself out as a freelance web developer and create a side business. I’m trying to learn how to use GitHub but I’ll have to take it at my own pace. Any advice would be appreciated- Thanks! -E

I’m studying cybersecurity & C++ over the summer, as well as a CEH course. I’m working towards entering the cybersecurity workforce. I’m quite new to GitHub, I hope to explore around & meet interesting new people along my journey :slight_smile:
