Weekly Welcome 23 March, 2018

Hello GitHub Community Forum :smileyvery-happy:

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. Thank you for the warm welcome. I am beginning to explore new areas of knowledge for a future career change and am just kind of meandering around the web looking for a good place to hang my hat. I know nothing a bit about coding, but from an ancient language called C++ that I messed about with in 03’ Computer Science AP. I was terrible at it then, although I cared more about the students in the class than the actual lessons.

Technology has seemed to move on without me over the years. Not sure if it was because life itself got in the way or I simply had had enough of computers (an IBM was placed in front of my face with math learning computer games via floppy in 1989), but the drive to learn more about the fascinating thing that is code got away from me.

Welp, I’m back - and in need of tender code-learning love. I plan to get my hands on all thing code (no idea where to start, but just starting SOMEWHERE seems to be a step in the right direction).

Anyhoo - thanks for the welcome again and I hope to git my hands dirty with tech!! (see what I did there?)

Hi, C.F.! We’re happy you’re here. This is a great place to learn more and get help and advice from your peers who are also using GitHub. Welcome!


Hello and please help me merge 

Hi @jmdarts007! Glad to have you with us in the forum!

If you haven’t done so already, you’ll want to create a post in the How to use Git and GitHub board with details (and perhaps screenshots) of your problem so that the community can help you troubleshoot.

Hi @tishadawn1983,

Your GitHub Community Forum post was merged with an already-existing Topic. We are so happy to see the GitHub Community Forum members introducing themselves and connecting with one another.

We would like to ask that, moving forward, everyone please say “hello” via reply to the most recent Weekly Welcome post. In order to keep the Community Forum organized, and the Welcome board reserved for important announcements from the Community Forum Team, we are asking our users not to open new Topics just to say hello to the Community.

Thank you so much for being here. We are happy to have you!

You can now find your Topic as a reply in the Weekly Welcome here.
