No coding experience needed

Patchwork is a self-directed, hands-on workshop for learning GitHub. We maintain a casual and informal atmosphere—it’s not an event full of tutorial presentations and copious note-taking. You will be able to go at your own pace with the help of a community mentor nearby, just 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 the 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 help someone else create magic.

Special thanks to our partners for the event:
