We’re excited to announce a Patchwork hack night on Tuesday, February 10th 2015, co-hosted with our friends at Xero in Melbourne.
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?
Mentors: if you’ve ever had a Pull Request merged, now is your chance to share the love and help someone else create magic.
@michaeltwofish, @rachelmyers, @Foggybtmgirl, and I, along with other GitHub staff and local community mentors, will be on hand to walk you through the Hello World tutorial, answer your questions, help you create your first open source project and achieve your first merged Pull Request.
We’ll begin with a story about getting started in programming, spend time on the tutorial in small groups, and then close things out with lightning talks from some people in the community.
Once registered, you’ll receive an email the day before the event with details about the tutorial.
This is a free event. Food and refreshments will be provided.
