No coding experience needed

Patchwork is a hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. Join us for a night of hacking and snacking, and make some new friends while you’re at it!

Forks you don’t eat with? Branches not made of wood?

Newcomers to Git and GitHub, you’ll be creating your own open source project. You will leave with a merged Pull Request, a square on your contributions graph, and confidence to get more involved in the open source community.

Mentors, if you’ve ever had a Pull Request merged, now’s your chance to share those warm fuzzies and help someone else get started on their journey.

Learning is better together

GitHubbers @alysonla, @sachinr, and @shayfrendt, as well as local community mentors, will be on hand to answer your questions and help you create your first open source project and achieve your first merged Pull Request.

We’ll kick the event off with a GitHubber talking about how they got started in programming, then we’ll break into small groups and work on the Hello World tutorial guide, and a community member will close things out with a lightning talk on their experience in open source.

If you have questions about the command line, GUIs, or anything Git and GitHub-related, we’re here to help.

Details:

  • For: Git and GitHub beginners.
  • When: Wednesday, February 4, 6:30-9:00pm.
  • Where: iXperience, 19 Park Road, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001
  • RSVP:
    • Want to learn Git and GitHub? RSVP as an attendee.
    • Want to help guide future open source maintainers and contributors? RSVP as a mentor.

Food and refreshments will be available.

Mentors, you’ll receive an email a few days before the event with details about what to expect and the curriculum. We’ll be teaching Git concepts and making a Pull Request using the GitHub Flow and Hello World tutorial guide.
