Pinned toot

So, you've joined Fosstodon and are wondering, "now, how does this work?"

One thing that sets Fosstodon apart from traditional social media outlets (and some other instances) is the community's willingness to help and offer valuable feedback. This is especially true with new members.

Please don't hesitate to raise a hand (toot) and ask questions. If you prefer some reading material, @kev has written a great article to help you get started:

A big "welcome!" to all of our new members. It's great to see all the new faces and the steady flow of introductory toots!

For those members (new and old) that don't know, is full of information that is relative to our instance. From staff members to our Code of Conduct, you can find more information about Fosstodon! Make sure to check it out and, if you haven't already done so, make your first toot and tell us a bit about yourself.

Hi, πŸ‘‹
I'm a student & web developer from Maryland (US). I enjoy contributing to (see my github), ( or ), and playing with my family's new Wilson. I'm also looking for interesting people to follow!

Hello Everyone, new to mastodon but really like the concept and hope to be part of driving wider mainstream adoption of decentralised digital commons. I'm an academic researcher working on contemporary digital activism.

Finally settled on a domain for my app.

FOSS, client side, private contact sharing!

Spread the word (I think it's really cool and you should too, kthx)

Terraform help.

Anyone with Terraform experience who could spare 30 mins of their time to look at some code with me?

I'm having some problems with modules that I've created to use on Azure. I think it will be pretty basic stuff for someone with experience.

It's Saturday.....where are the pics?! 😜

Came down to Florida to visit my mom. Doing a bit of work, while connected to her wifi and realized how much I take for granted, on my home network. Lol. The volume of advertisements, compared to working on my home network, is impressive. 😜
