|Brief description:||"Discuss about Scratch's different open source projects."|
The Open Source Projects forum is a forum in the Scratch Forums where Scratchers can discuss about Scratch's different open source projects. Announcements will also be made relating to the work we do as a community to to build the Scratch website/language using text-based coding languages. The forum was made public on the 2nd of February, 2016, however, it was created privately before then. 
What the Forum Contains
This forum can be used:
|“|| To ask pretty much any questions and comments you might have about any of our open source projects .
Having trouble getting a copy of the project and working with it on your own computer? Ask about it in the forum!
Working on something in your own copy that you need help with, or want to work on someone else with? Ask someone in the forum!
We really want this to be a place where we all come together not only to build and talk with Scratch, but to build Scratch itself.
