Hello GitHub Community Forum!

In this weekly post, 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.

Thanks for the warm welcome admins.
I am George Odamtten, an undergraduate, pursuing a BSc. in IT. I am an African, a proud Ghanaian for that matter and speak mainly English.
I have had much interest in gadgets and computers way back in elementary school but, a complete newbie to the current trending topics in IT. I have a keen interest in Programming and currently on C++ on Sololearn.
I was looking for a programming community and was glad to find this. I must say, I am very impressed with what I see hear. Vast resources and experts to aid one along his dream in emerging technologies.
Hoping to make a wave and impact in my small little way to the world today. Thanks devs for this great work done :slight_smile: God bless

I am still doing program development, and I am happy to share my Apple developer account. If you are interested, you can add my skype communication, it is [edited by moderator]

Hi @valdi69,

Thanks for being here!  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. 

Hello everyone. I am new here and eager to learn from the open source community.
Looking forward to help me out in giving me a start…
