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. We look forward to hearing from you.

Human progress depends on the open source community. One of the biggest issues facing developers today is how to create and consume open source in a secure and trusted way. And at GitHub, we have a unique opportunity and responsibility to provide the tools, best practices, and infrastructure to make software development secure. Today we’re announcing a big step in securing the open source supply chain: we’re welcoming Semmle to GitHub.

*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.

Hi guys!

So in case you don’t know me, my name is Zoe, and I’m a programmer who learns mostly Python and Django. I’ve been on GitHub for two years and highly recommend it to other coders.

I first started on GitHub, and back then I was learning Python (and didn’t know anything about it except if statements and printing words) and then did 2 websites by a coder called Marian Zburlea, which was w3schools-replica and my-cv.

And now I’m programming with Python, committing daily to GitHub on my website which I actually would like to call HTML Project. (Don’t worry, I’m still doing Python, I’m just keeping up with my other languages.)

Thanks everyone!
