For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
GitHub Satellite is virtual this year, and we’d love to see you there. Join us at githubsatellite.com on May 6 starting at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET / 6 pm CET for a full day of free product talks, protips from teams, code-powered musical performances, and much more. We’ll have two different live stream tracks, one for work and one for play, all day. Tune in for all 12 hours or just watch the sessions that interest you—from wherever you are. And if you miss them live, all sessions will be available on demand after the event.
Want to build something with us the day after Satellite? Reserve a spot for two different workshops on May 7 for $50—all of your purchase goes to COVID-19 response efforts. Learn more
From DJs who code to infrastructure security experts, we’ve curated a line up of inspiring speakers who will be dropping knowledge (and beats) at Satellite. Get to know them a bit before the event with a few questions we asked about their sessions and interests:
Meet Luca Cipriani, CIO of Arduino
Session: “Bring time back on your side with GitHub Actions” (Work Track)
Read the logs, Luke!
Attendees will learn how to automate software and hardware testing with GitHub Actions.
My nickname is mastrolinux, and now I am using Windows 10 after 17 years of Linux. Indeed Windows is now the best Linux distro out there!
Meet Ivan Pashchenko, University of Trento
Session: “Dependency hell or developers’ perception of software dependencies” (Work Track)
When I was a child, I dreamed of being a magician. Development opened the magical universe for me, where code and your brain can create miracles.
I want you to be able to improve the security of the software dependencies in your projects. I want to spread the word about my work in security of software dependencies, especially since vulnerabilities introduced by dependencies have already led to many severe security breaches.

Meet Alexandra Cardenas, Live Coder
Session: Live coding (Play Track)
Code allows me to express my musical thoughts better than anything else.
My album HIPERSONICA.
Meet Maya Kaczorowski, GitHub
Session: “Securing the software supply chain together” (Work Track)
AI-generated artwork that’s made to fool neural nets into thinking they were looking at a specific object.
It’s your responsibility to better understand and protect what you’re consuming in your code—as a developer, make sure to patch patch patch!
Lea Kissner. She gets to work on super cool privacy problems, and engineer solutions that help better protect users, at scale.
Meet Sam Aaron, DJ and CEO of Sonic Pi Limited
Session: Live DJ set (Play Track)
We should be using our magical developer skills to lower the barriers to entry for a creative experience with code for everyone.
Joe Armstrong. For thinking so deeply and creatively and seeing so clearly through all of the fashion and hubris that clouds the programming world.
