We’re coming back to Amsterdam to help celebrate PRIDE with our friends in the LGBTQ community. Join us as we team up with Q42 to host a Patchwork event on August 5. The event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub, or mentors who would like to help others learn. We’ll have stickers and a little something extra for mentors, so we hope to see you there.
Also, if you register by July 15, you’ll get one of our Pridetocat or Transtocat t-shirts absolutely free.
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 in the LGBTQ community
- When? August 5, 2016, 6:30-9:30 pm
- Where? Q42, Oostelijke Handelskade 749, 1019BW Amsterdam
Once registered, you’ll receive an email before the event with more details.
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.
