On November 17, we’re teaming up with our friends at Ingressive who are hosting a GitHub Patchwork and Meetup/Q&A in Lagos, Nigeria after day one of their High Growth Africa Summit. This free event is open to anyone who wants to learn about GitHub, or help others learn as a mentor. The evening will include training, tutorials, giveaways and networking. And, of course, swag. It’ll be held at Cafe Neo (Paloos location).

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.
