Hello GitHub Community Forum :smileyvery-happy:

Hope everyone is having a great new year so far and your goals for the year are going strong. Share your code goals in a reply below to see who else will be learning alongside you this year!

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.

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, and 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.

Hello.  I’m excited and looking forward to this new journey.  I programmed a little in basic when I was a kid and a little in Visual Basic in Excel, but that is about it.

I´m  from argentina and a “newbie”  I joined to this community because I choose open source tools when I can. As  math teacher I would like to develop educational and community projects  with GitHub tools.  But I don´t know where or how start. I was looking for a kind of “hello world” proyect ; )
Well I´m here and  I hope that I can become a useful member of this community
Sincerely yours
