{{:cusf-header-banner.png?nolink& |}} ====== Welcome to the CU Spaceflight Wiki ====== This Wiki is intended as a place to document work in progress projects as well as to collate useful information and documents. For more information please see the [[wiki details]] page. Only approved members can create and edit pages due to spam. Please register for an account and email [[admin@cusf.co.uk]] with your username to request approval. ===== Snippets ===== Snippets is a system to log ongoing work in projects in order to keep the rest of the team up to date. Please see the [[snippets]] page for more information. ===== Source Code Management - Github ===== We also have a [[http://github.com/cuspaceflight|Github organisation]] which you should use for source code. Please ask to be added to the organisation if you wish to use it. See the [[http://help.github.com|Github Help Pages]] for help with getting started. ===== Follow Us ===== Find our images and videos on [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/cuspaceflight/|Flickr]] and [[http://www.vimeo.com/cuspaceflight/|Vimeo]].
