About the Welcome and Introductions! category

Introduce yourself to the rest of the community and say hello to our newest members!

What is community.mlh.io?

MLH wants to do everything we can to grow and foster the hacker community, and that starts with helping organizers like you. Our digital organizer community is a place for you to connect with fellow organizers. This is the place for everyone who’s passionate about empowering hackers to ask questions, offer advice, and learn together.

Not sure how much food to order or where from? Create a thread, provide some background, and let the rest of our community organizers share their expertise. Feel like you’ve got the perfect hackathon budget spreadsheet? Share it with the rest of us. Got a new meme template that speaks to you as an organizer? Head over to Random and let us see it.

What is the Welcome and Introductions! category for?

This is the category to meet the newest members of this community. We want everyone to share as much about themselves as they’re comfortable sharing, so we know who we’re helping out.

If this is your first time here, go ahead and tell us a little about yourself by starting a new topic with your name, event, and country as the subject line.

Subject line example: Hi I’m Nick Quinlan from LoonHacks, USA
