No coding experience needed

Patchwork is a hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. Join us for a night of hacking and snacking and make some new friends while you’re at it!

Forks you don’t eat with? Branches not made of wood?

Newcomers to Git and GitHub: you’ll leave with a merged Pull Request, a square on your contributions graph, and confidence to get more involved in the open source community.

Mentors, if you’ve ever had a Pull Request merged, now is your chance to share the love and help someone else create magic.

Learning is better together

Myself, @robrix, @schacon, @ciaramcguire, other GitHub staff and local community mentors will be on hand to walk you through the Hello World tutorial, answer your questions, and help you create your first open source project and achieve your first merged Pull Request.

We’ll begin with a story about getting started in programming, spend time on the tutorial in small groups, and then a community member will close things out with a lightning talk on an open source project.

Details:

  • For: Git and GitHub beginners.
  • When? Thursday, October 23rd 2014 from 6:30-9:00pm.
  • Where? CodeBase at Argyle House, 3 Lady Lawson Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DR
  • RSVP:

    • Want to learn Git and Github? RSVP as an attendee.
    • Want to help guide future open source maintainers and contributors? RSVP as a mentor.

Once registered, you’ll receive an email the day before the event with details about the tutorial.
