As part of our ongoing commitment to accelerate human progress through Social Impact initiatives, we’re offering students 30-minute, 1:1 micro-mentoring sessions with GitHub employees ahead of Universe.
Sit back, close your eyes, and think about how good you are at coding. Man, you’re awesome. When did you learn how to be so awesome? Now just think how awesome you would be if you had learned how to code when you were seven years old.
Here at GitHub, we think it’s important to contribute to our future. Since kids will eventually grow up (so we hear) we think it’d be awesome to teach them how to code. We’re working with CoderDojo to bring their awesome kid-code-teaching classes to the US.
GitHub is really excited to get involved. We’ll be hosting the first US dojo at our San Francisco office. If you have kids that you think would be interested in learning HTML, CSS, and a little GameMaker, sign them up! Spots are limited, and are expected to fill up fast.
Time: 12pm – 2pm, February 25th
Place: GitHub HQ, 548 4th Street, San Francisco, CA 94107
