GitHub workshop to celebrate Women’s Day
On the International Women’s Day, we decided to organize something special in Tricity to celebrate and connect women who want to seriously start their programming careers.
Getting your first programming job as a Frontend Developer is not as hard as you think. But first things first. Except knowing HTML and CSS you need to also have some proven GitHub experience. And here we are to help you to build your portfolio and kick-start your career.
Come and join us for the GitHub workshop and make your first open source contribution – let’s demystify GitHub together!
Workshop: GitHub for beginners: Your first open source contribution [workshop in Polish]
Where: Schibsted Tech Polska HQ, Olivia Business Center (Olivia Four), Gdańsk
For who: For women with basic knowledge of HTML and CSS / Frontend Developers wannabes
Number of participants: 20
I EDITION 8th March
The tickets for the first edition sold out extremely fast, thank you for your great interest! Since many of you didn’t manage to book a spot we decided to organize another edition 2 weeks later!
II EDITION 22nd March
We’re excited to run the second edition of the GitHub workshops. First, we want
to give a chance to people who are on the waitlist for the first edition. Later on, we will release tickets to everyone – stay tuned!
During the workshop, you will learn the basics of GIT, understand the GitFlow, create a sample repository to play with and create your first pull request. In general, you will get an overview how the workflow of producing software works in IT companies.
Why should you bother with GitHub, anyway? Well, if you seriously think about working as a Frontend Developer this is kind of a MUST HAVE knowledge to have. And most probably one of the first questions during your interview for software developer position will be about your GitHub contribution.
