Mission Report: GitHub Satellite

Keynote at GitHub Satelite

Earlier this week, we kicked off the second GitHub Satellite in London. In case you missed it, here are some highlights, along with a summary of platform updates we shared.

We started day one at Printworks with a keynote by GitHub CEO Chris Wanstrath and Platform Engineering Manager Kyle Daigle. They shared a few platform updates, including the launch of GitHub Marketplace, a new way to discover and buy apps that customize your workflow.

On day two, we worked with chatbots, Electron, and Arduinos in hands-on workshops, and we ended the day with cocktails and refreshments at White Rabbit, an airy Shoreditch workspace.

Platform updates

We launched a couple tools that make it easier to build on your process and integrate with GitHub in addition to GitHub Marketplace. Check out the production-ready version of our GraphQL API and GitHub Apps, fresh out of pre-release. For more details, see the platform update blog post.


GitHub Satellite would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors who provided coffee, waffles, floral installations, and mustachioed mascots made of LEGOS.

Thank you

Finally, thank you to our community for launching the second Satellite into orbit—you made this one the best yet. We’d love to see you again at CodeConf and ElectronConf in July, and at GitHub Universe in October!
