Create a GitHub App at Craftwork Amsterdam this July

Our developer relations team is headed to Amsterdam this month to help you build a GitHub App in our first ever Craftwork event. This workshop is open to developers of any skill level who want to learn how to use the GitHub API to build better developer workflows. We’ll have stickers for everyone, too!

GitHubbers will walk attendees through the process of creating their first GitHub App. This workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to the GitHub Apps flow
  • Probot, a great tool for getting started building GitHub Apps
  • Hosting code with Glitch

Beginners welcome

Craftwork is a hands-on workshop for learning how to build GitHub Apps—tools that can help make you and your team more productive with GitHub. The atmosphere is casual and informal; we’ll all be working together and helping each other out to build or first GitHub Apps. You will be able to work at your own pace with the help of a GitHubber nearby in case you run into any trouble.

You’ll leave with a working GitHub App, deployed and ready to use, and the confidence to continue building the tools you need to be more productive with your open source project, or at your work.

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:
