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:

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:


For: Beginners to Git and GitHub
When? May 11, 2018 5:30-8:30 pm
Where? 岡山国際交流センター, 〒700-0026 岡山市北区奉還町2丁目2番1号 (This venue is wheelchair friendly)

Mission report: Git Merge 2018


Last week, hundreds of Git fans met in Barcelona for Git Merge 2018—the conference dedicated to your favorite version control tool—and even more people joined the sessions from around the world on our live stream. The event brought together business leaders, source control teams, and developers for two days of Git-focused activities, promoting goodwill and dialogue between companies that have a vested interest in the progression of Git and that employ Git contributors.

We donate all proceeds from Git Merge tickets to the Software Freedom Conservancy to support their work in improving and defending free and open source software.


Git Merge kicked off with a full day of workshops led by experts from GitHub and Praqma about topics like Git aliases, scripting, and simulating Git workflows.

On the second day, Brett Smith of Software Freedom Conservancy delivered a thoughtful keynote about how free and accessible software is the key to building the future. Then speakers from Mozilla, Microsoft, and other leading technology companies took the stage to discuss refactoring, automation, and the future of Git over the course of the day.

Thank you

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s Git Merge! And we couldn’t have done it without our sponsors who came together to support the Software Freedom Conservancy and open source software at this important event.
