GitHub Patchwork – October 28

Patchwork is a self-directed, hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. The atmosphere is casual and informal; it is not an event full of presented tutorials and copious note-taking. 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!

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.


  • For: Git and GitHub beginners.
  • When? October 28, 2015, 6:30-9:30 pm
  • Where? WeWork, Weteringschans 165, 1017 XD Amsterdam
  • RSVP:
