As part of our ongoing commitment to accelerate human progress through Social Impact initiatives, we’re offering students 30-minute, 1:1 micro-mentoring sessions with GitHub employees ahead of Universe.
Technical writers, content creators, documentation experts, and anyone writing for the web, we hope you can join us for this special Patchwork edition happening in Atlanta on May 6. While we welcome our code writing friends as well, this Patchwork will pay particular attention to the wordsmiths in the tech industry. The event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub, or mentors who would like to help others learn. We’ll have stickers and something a little extra for mentors, so we hope to see you there.
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.
