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.

I am new to GitHub but not to software. I have a website PineTreeJoe.com.  I plan to make some software open source as soon as I learn enough GitHub. This is the first open source project I have done. It is possible to download executable versions now.

One item is a tree structured editor. There are many of these but it served the purpose of being an easy way to write a help file for an application.

The other program is a program independent text snippet manager. Because it doesn’t fit in a know category it is harder to explain. If you reuse any pieces of text it is good.

In both cases all the source code is C# winforms. My main interests are software tools that do not require an internet connection.
