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.

Around GitHub

  • GitHub Education offers students free access to the best developer tools There’s no substitute for hands-on experience. But for most students, real world tools can be cost-prohibitive. That’s why we created the GitHub Student Developer Pack with some of our partners and friends: to give students free access to the best developer tools in one place so they can learn by doing.

From the GitHub Blog

  • July 22 incident update On Monday at 3:46 pm UTC, several services on GitHub.com experienced a 41-minute disruption, and as a result, some services were degraded for a longer period. Our initial investigation suggests a logic error introduced into our deployment pipeline manifested during a subsequent and unrelated deployment of the GitHub.com website.

*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.
