We hope you’ll join us on February 10 at WorkMarket for a casual night of hands-on hacking and learning about Git, GitHub, and GitHub Pages. We’ll be unveiling our new Patchwork curriculum, and we’d love your feedback!

No coding experience needed

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!

GitHubbers @nathos, @rocio, @paladique, and @ShikhaThakkar, as well as local community mentors, will be on hand to walk you through your choice of learning modules:

  • Introduction to Git
  • Introduction to GitHub
  • Creating a Site with GitHub Pages

If you have questions about the command line, GUIs, or anything Git and GitHub-related, we’re here to help.

Food and refreshments will be available.

If you do not yet have a GitHub account, we ask that you sign up at https://github.com before you attend the event. It’s fast, easy, and of course, free. That way you’ll be ready to go right out of the gate.

Mentors, you’ll receive an email a few days before the event with details about what to expect.
