A recap of all the GitHub Education news from Universe 2021, including the new Intro to Web Dev Experience.
🎉 Thank you to everyone who was able to attend GitHub Universe 2021. Developers from around the world participated in the two-day event, and we were blown away by the innovation we saw during the interactive sessions. Don’t worry, if you weren’t able to make it, we have a full recap.
Universe 2021 explored DevOps, Security, Developer Productivity and Open Source Communities. The global developer event of the year kicked off with a keynote from GitHub CEO, Nat Friedman, followed by the main broadcast featuring talks from GitHub developers, product pros, and open source peers. The special event allowed attendees to participate in live interactive sessions and workshops, roundtables, and AMAs.
We know there isn’t always time to tune into a live session. Time should never stop you from diving into a topic you are eager to learn more about. That is why Universe 2021 allowed participants to dive deeper into topics on-demand and on their own time. The two-day event kicked off with a keynote from GitHub CEO, Nat Friedman, and developers learned in live streams and interactive sessions covering DevOps, Security, Developer Productivity and Open Source Communities.
Over on GitHub Campus TV, the GitHub Education Team and Campus Experts followed along with a live watch party.
