Integrating with GitHub

Come see the future for building applications on top of GitHub. Integrations provide more granular access to GitHub's API, puts more control in user and Organizations hands to grant access, and allow you to interact within GitHub as a first-class actor. Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned integrator or someone who has never built on top of our platform, this session will guide you towards making a successful Integration upon the GitHub experience. This session will showcase new features that Integrations brings to the table, how it integrates with your users for a better experience, and how others are already using Integrations to make their customer and GitHub experience better.

Mark Tareshawty has been enjoying making people misspell the storage capacity for 1024 gigabytes since he grabbed the @tarebyte handle many years ago. He is a Platform Engineer at GitHub based in Columbus Ohio, and enjoys contributing to open source and building tools that makes peoples lives better.

How to Avoid Creating a GitHub Junkyard
Lauri Apple
Producer/Agile Project Manager, Zalando

As a former journalist, I tend to think in terms of storytelling. As an open source evangelist, I invite you to do the same. What you share on GitHub tells a story about you, your development practices, and your openness to others in the open source community. If you're motivated to gain users, contributors, and positive feedback about your projects, then building a compelling, coherent narrative is essential. In this talk, I'll share insights gained from "editing" Zalando's GitHub repository so we can tell a better story. From 400+ projects of widely differing quality, reliability and maintenance levels, we've winnowed our offerings to make our highest-quality work more discoverable. I'll share how we used GitHub and other tools to create guidelines, categories, and processes that bring sanity to our storytelling. If your organization is facing similar GitHub-bloat challenges, or looking for ways to manage your repos more effectively, you might find some help here.

Empowering Environmental Science with Open Tools & Open Data
Jacob Tomlinson
Lead Engineer, Met Office Informatics Lab
Github

The Met Office is a world leading weather and climate centre with the largest operational supercomputer in Europe. With data growing rapidly every year, we need to change our approach to analysing it. This talk covers how we are working with a suite of open source tools to solve this problem. We have mixed popular projects, like Jupyter Notebooks, with new data processing libraries (like Dask) and our own bespoke weather analysis tools (like Iris). We are also opening large volumes of data to the public, which through these tools can be manipulated quickly and easily from the comfort of a web browser.

Jacob is the lead engineer for the Met Office Informatics Lab with experience in software development, operational system engineering and cloud architecture. He uses these skills to ensure the lab is building robust prototypes that are pushing the boundaries of technology.

The Silicon Mountain community which is known to be Cameroon's largest growing tech community. Silicon Mountain is located in Buea, in the South-West region of Cameroon just at the foot of the Mount Fako. This community is still very new and has gone through some refinement to get to where it is now. This talk provides some insight on how technology is being used to solve problems in this part of the world, the problems we are facing and how we are overcoming them against all odds. The community hopes to have a huge impact in technology within Africa and also in the world.

Konrad Djimeli is a Computer Science student at the University of Buea, Cameroon. He is a software developer and an organizer within the Silicon Mountain community in Africa. He is an open source developer, evangelist and a GitHub Campus Expert in his community. He also believes you are only as limited as your ambitions and he is dedicated to helping others reach their full potential. http://djimeli.me/
