Get started with GitHub for Beginners

Do you ever ask yourself, “What is GitHub” or wish you had an opportunity to learn the basics of Git? If you’ve always wanted to use GitHub, but haven’t quite been able to get up to speed, this beginner-friendly webcast is for you.

Join GitHub Trainers Briana Swift and Cynthia Rich for some useful tips about how to get work done on GitHub. We’ll also provide an overview of the GitHub Flow and share ways to get the most out of our platform, right from the start.

The webcast will take place on May 29 at 10:00 am CET and again on May 29th at 9:00 am PT. We hope to see you there!

Patchwork Phoenix

Patchwork logo

Patchwork, our hands-on Git and GitHub workshop, is headed to Phoenix this month! This event is open to beginners who want to learn and advanced Git users who want to mentor. We’ll have stickers for everyone and something extra for the mentors, so we hope to see you there. Special thanks to Girls In Tech for partnering with us.

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

  • Introduction to GitHub
  • Communicating using Markdown
  • GitHub Pages
  • Managing merge conflicts
  • Moving your project to GitHub

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 will be able to work at your own pace with the help of a community mentor nearby in case you run into any trouble.

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:
