Hey folks! We are hosting a meetup during National Coding Week which runs from 17-23 September 2018.
This is a free workshop aimed at anyone who would like to take the first step to contribute to open source documentation using the GitHub web platform. At the end of the session you will have completed your first pull request on GitHub!
No development skills are required. However, ideally you will need to familiarise yourself with GitHub and have a basic understanding of front-end website code (HTML and CSS).
You'll also need to choose your target project beforehand (we'll supply a list of potential projects soon). We'll be on hand to support and help troubleshoot technical issues.
We are publishing a series of blog posts to help you prepare for this workshop. Here is the first: https://awaywithwords.co/2018/07/27/first-pull-request-github-open-source/
We will provide light refreshments (tea, coffee, water) and you are welcome to bring your own snacks. We have capacity for 15 people so please confirm your attendance.
