For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
Patchwork, our hands-on Git and GitHub workshop, is headed to Phoenix this month! This event is open to beginners who want to learn and advanced Git users who want to mentor. We’ll have stickers for everyone and something extra for the mentors, so we hope to see you there. Special thanks to Girls In Tech for partnering with us.
GitHubbers and community mentors will be on hand to walk attendees through their choice of learning modules, including:
- 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 work at your own pace with the help of a community mentor nearby in case you run into any trouble.
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: Beginners to Git and GitHub and mentors
