For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
We’re happy to be hosting a Patchwork hack night in Madison, Wisconsin, and we hope you’re able to come. If you’re a beginner to Git and GitHub, or want to help others learn, we’d love to see you on April 6 at the Goodman Community Center.
A host of GitHubbers, 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
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!
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? April 6, 2016, 6:30-9:30 pm
