For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
Mark your calendars. GitHub has a fresh lineup of events for 2016 – including two new European conferences, GitHub Satellite and CodeConf Copenhagen.
Git Merge: April 5, New York City
Git Merge is the pre-eminent Git conference: a full-day event featuring technical content and training workshops for Git users of all levels. Git Merge is dedicated to amplifying new voices from the Git community and to showcasing the most thought-provoking projects from contributors, maintainers, and community managers around the world. Tickets are now on sale. Interested in speaking at Git Merge? Send us an overview of your talk by February 5th. We’d love to hear from you.
GitHub Satellite: May 11, Amsterdam
The first ever European conference in the GitHub Universe event series, GitHub Satellite is a celebration of the latest and greatest in software. Join us to learn how developers, founders, and activists work to create impactful technologies. Great software is about more than code; at Satellite, we’ll showcase how the community is tackling the newest and most difficult challenges posed by the modern development workflow.
This year CodeConf, a two-day conference for the open souce community, moves to the West Coast. At CodeConf we will get together to discuss best practices in open source, documentation, community-building, and innovative technical hacks. Check out the lineup from last year’s event in Nashville to get a taste of what you can expect.
GitHub Universe: September 14-15, San Francisco.
GitHub Universe is returning to Pier 70 for a two-day conference celebrating technologists and developers from across the GitHub community. Last year, we heard from people who are improving people’s lives using technology and redefining how software is built. This year, you can look forward to an even better Universe.
