Patchwork Okayama

Patchwork is headed to Okayama, Japan! This event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub and mentors who want to help others learn. We’ll have stickers for everyone and a little something extra for the mentors, so we hope to see you there.

Special thanks to our partners for the event:

GitHubbers and community mentors will be on hand to walk the attendees through their choice of learning modules:

  • git-it-electron: https://github.com/jlord/git-it-electron

This app consumes internet bandwidth, so we encourage you to download it at your home before joining the event.

No coding experience needed

Patchwork is a self-directed, hands-on workshop for learning Git and GitHub. The atmosphere is casual and informal—it’s not an event full of presented tutorials and copious note-taking. You’ll 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 the 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:
