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.
Patchwork is headed to Asheville, North Carolina! This event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub and mentors who want to help others learn. We’ll have stickers for everyone, and a little something extra for the mentors, so we hope to see you there.
Special thanks to our partners for the event:
GitHubbers and community mentors will be on hand to walk the attendees through their choice of learning modules:
- Introduction to GitHub
- Communicating using Markdown
- GitHub Pages
- Managing merge conflicts
- Moving your project to GitHub
Patchwork is a self-directed, hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. The atmosphere is casual and informal—it’s 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.
