GitHub now has an office in Amsterdam! To spread the , we will be hosting two upcoming events. If you’re in town for OSCON EU, or if you’re local, we hope you’ll be able to come say hello!
Patchwork is a self-directed, hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. The atmosphere is casual and informal; it is not an event full of presented tutorials and copious note-taking. You will be able to go at your own pace, with the help of a community mentor nearby 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 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 share the love and help someone else create magic.
We are hosting a GitHub Meetup event at B. Amsterdam, a thriving place in the city, on Thursday, October 29th from 5:30pm-8pm. There will be a talk on “Git and GitHub Secrets,” catered food and drinks, and a chance to complete your collection of octocat stickers and T-shirts.
Come by B. Amsterdam to learn some GitHub tips and tricks, eat, drink, and mingle with GitHubbers and fellow open-source developers. This is a free event, and no registration is required. We look forward to seeing you there!
