Patchwork logo

If you’ll be attending The Next Web NYC on November 16, we’d love to have you join us for our Patchwork round table session. The session is open to all attendees who are 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 will be on hand to walk you through your choice of learning modules:

  • Introduction to Git (using Git-It)
  • Introduction to GitHub (using our On-Demand Learning module)

We’ll also be sharing a few minutes on how to use GitHub to help you source and attract the world’s best developer talent. Led by GitHub’s Developer Marketing team, we’ll show you a few tips and tricks on how to best use GitHub as a powerful recruiting tool.

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.
