Hello GitHub Community Forum

This is our Weekly Welcome post, where 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. We want this community to be a place you want to engage and enjoy visiting!

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. We look forward to hearing from you!

*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 Warren aka munki or munkinut. I’ve been coding for a long time in a variety of languages. My favourite is Java and I have been involved in some major, large scale projects using Java EE. About 10 years ago I became ill and have been unable to work. I’m presently upskilling on things I’ve missed out on including git and GitHub, Agile, Java 7,8,9 etc. If you’re reading this, many thanks :smiley:

Regards, munki
