For the good of the community: Contributing to open source

If you care about giving back to communities and the quality of your open source code, consider the impact your organization could have if every member contributed to open source projects they use. The transition from using open source to contributing isn't always easy, but it's important to give back.

In this workshop, you'll discover how some organizations support the open source communities they depend on, how you can scale open source programs across entire organizations, and how to encourage your team to make meaningful contributions.


Build a GitHub App using Probot

Whether you're interested in building a special feature for your team or just automating some tasks, Probot is one way to quickly turn ideas into innovations.

This beginner-friendly workshop doesn't require any GitHub Apps experience or prior knowledge. We’ll teach you who, what, where, when, and why they’re important. And you’ll walk away with skills for building, customizing, and even integrating improvements across every project you touch.


Move from legacy systems to Git

What's the right size for a repository? When's the right time to migrate from a centralized version control system? How much of my history should I keep? If you've asked these questions, you're not alone. Moving from legacy systems introduces challenges for organizations of any size.

In this workshop, you'll hear from engineers who have moved repositories of all varieties, how they did it, and what types of guardrails they had in place for smooth migrations.

The benefits of open source, inside your organization

Now, every company is a technology company. And with the best, most widely-used technologies coming from open source projects, it's essential that teams think about more than their code base. Companies that use open source methodologies are creating collaborative communities, increasing transparency, and shipping at unprecedented speeds.

This workshop will help you learn how you can create this kind of culture within your organization, how it fits with corporate governance, and how to get buy in from leadership in your organization.


The metrics that matter: How to build a GitHub dashboard

GitHub can help you access lots of data about projects and developers in your organization. Data can be a powerful tool in tracking productivity, but it can also encourage unproductive behaviors. Knowing what to track is often the biggest challenge.

In this workshop, you'll learn which metrics your team should be watching, and how to collect and visualize them to help developers work more efficiently and collaboratively.


Scale GitHub within your organization

So your team has started using GitHub. Now what? Rolling out new workflows can introduce technical challenges, but sometimes the culture shifts are just as difficult to navigate.

Join advocates and experts as they share their experiences using and scaling GitHub in their organizations—and get tips for how you can make GitHub work even better for your growing team.
