For this edition of Patchwork, we’re teaming up with our friends at Code for Philly for an evening of food, hacking, and meeting some new faces. You do not need to be a Code for Philly member to participate; the event is open to all 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.


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

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!

Newcomers to Git and GitHub: you’ll leave with a merged pull request, a square on your contributions graph, and confidence to get more involved in the open source community.

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? August 2, 6:00-9:00 pm
  • Where? Pipeline Philly, The Graham Building at Dilworth Park, 15th floor, 30 South 15th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102
  • RSVP: Want to learn Git and GitHub or help guide future open source maintainers and contributors? RSVP at Code for Philly’s Meetup Event

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 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.

We will provide food and refreshments. If you have any food allergies, please let us know during registration.

This facility is wheelchair-accessible.
