We’re bringing back #FollowFriday, but for GitHub. On Friday, we’ll kick off our #FollowFriday series and showcase GitHub users you should follow.

But it’s Wednesday, you say. That’s right, we’re riffing on #FollowFriday and introducing #WatchWednesday – a quick list of projects you may have overlooked, aren’t ready for primetime, or otherwise noteworthy.

Got suggestions for projects or people to watch and follow on GitHub? Tweet us and let us know.
