Patchwork Reading, UK

Patchwork comes back to Europe on April 19. If you’re in the Reading, UK area, we hope you can come hang out with us at GROW@GreenPark. The event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub, or mentors who would like to help others learn. We’ll have stickers and something a little extra for mentors, so we hope to see you there.

GitHubbers @kaihj, @carmenpalmar, and @bitoiu, as well as local community mentors, will be on hand to walk you through your choice of learning modules:

  • Introduction to Git
  • Introduction to GitHub
  • Creating a Site with GitHub Pages

No coding experience needed

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. :sparkles:
