Patchwork NYC

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 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.
