Weekly Welcome 22 June, 2018

Hello GitHub Community Forum :smileyvery-happy:

Only 4 days remain to participate in our very first challenge in the Community Forum: the GitHub Learning Lab Explorer Challenge! Check out the challenge page for more information on how you can participate.

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, 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!

Your GitHub Community Forum Team

* 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.

I am Rahul Kumar Verma, I have just graduated from NIT Patna. I am new to GitHub please let me know how to get started.

Hi @rahul786kv,

Welcome! We are glad you are here.

Congratulations on your graduation!!

Here are a few resources to check out when getting started:

  • Our Hello World guide starts with the very basics of working on GitHub
  • Similarly, our new Learning Lab walks you through real-time tutorials to learn some of the important ins and outs of GitHub and working in open source
  • Our Open Source Guide is an amazing resource for learning about how to contribute to open source, start a project of your own, and find other great information on open source

I hope this helps! And welcome, again!

Hi @jucape,

Thanks for participating!

We take our Code of Conduct very seriously and want to help ensure that everyone has a good experience free of antagonism and harassment. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have moderators for languages other than English. What this means is that, until that changes, we need to ask that everyone use English here in the GitHub Community Forum when posting. 

Additionally, if you have a question you’d like help with from other community members, we recommend you open a new topic in the appropriate board. Our Weekly Welcome is reserved for saying hello and introducing ourselves.

Thanks for meeting us halfway :grinning:
