It’s time for another Patchwork night at GitHub HQ, next Thursday, July 10th!

Patchwork nights are hands-on help sessions for people new to Git and GitHub. You’ll leave with a merged pull request on an open source project, green squares on your contribution graph, and the excited feeling of learning a lot of new tips and tricks to keep going strong on your own!

If you want to help mentor future open sourcers, this night is for you, too. Along with other GitHubbers (including some in-SF-for-a-limited-time-only ‘Hubbers @muan, @mikemcquaid, and @michaeltwofish!), you’ll help attendees with questions throughout the evening. Wondering if you have what it takes? If you know Git, GitHub or you’ve been to one of our Patchwork nights in SF or London then you’ve got all the skills necessary to be a Patchwork mentor! We’d to see you again!

To mix things up in a really inspiring way, GitHub’s own @alysonla will be joining us to talk about how she got started in open source. There will be food, drinks, and new friends to meet.

Also, no coding experience required! RSVP here.
