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! Thanks for joining us!

Hello, my name is Anne Marie; I recently joined Github and I live near Detroit, Michigan. I’m starting a local front-end coding bootcamp, through which I found Git and Github. I’m learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and I appreciate the Github Community Forum (especially Strafe) and Github Support (especially Stacey) for the help I received resolving a difficult issue. I hope to keep learning alot, and to be a good citizen of this community.

I am a new member of this community, I am Toffic currently in between tutorials. I code on java,  I like to work on the challenging project where i can learn new things and improve myself quickly.



I’m learning Java from the Oracle online tutorials. I hope to find others to do some simple collaborations.

Welcome, @annemarieharm

So happy you are here! 

Hi @toffic, we are glad you are here! 

Very cool, @aquariumkicker! Welcome! Happy to have you here.

Hello, I am actually a businessman first and a software developer in training for a second… But I have some software ideas in mind that I have noticed the need for and I know that they will require much heavier code lifting and just HTML and CSS… I am certain that I will find the good direction tour method and construction that I need from GitHub and I very much enjoy the interactive social Community aspect which was not here a couple years back… Wishing all well until next

Hi @brudderj! We’re happy you’re here and excited to have you as part of the GitHub Community Forum!
