For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
Our next Patchwork hack night will be on Monday, April 13, 2015, and co-hosted with our friends at Notman House in Montréal, QC.
Patchwork is a self-directed hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. You will be able to go at your own pace, with the help of a community mentor nearby in case you run into any trouble. 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?
Mentors: if you’ve ever had a pull request merged, now is your chance to share the love and help someone else create magic.
@davideg, @sroberts, @celsmore, and local community mentors, will be on hand to walk you through the Hello World tutorial, answer your questions, 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 open source, spend time on the tutorial in small groups, and then close things out with a lightning talk from open source community member and ConFoo co-founder Anna Filina (@afilina). We are honored to have her join us!
