Event description
A hands-on thing with The App Club - we do version control and collaboration and introduction to Git/GitHub together with GitHub engineers!

About this Event

Someone asked "what's the best way to learn GitHub?", here's the answer: Learn from people at GitHub.

We are super thrilled to have Rowena and Prem, two implementation engineers at GitHub based in Chicago and Netherlands, joining us for a hands-on night of introduction to Git/GitHub! (it's an introduction but we won't stop you from throwing in advanced, hard questions)

Things you need to know before coming:

Nothing. No coding necessary. Bring your laptop and enjoy the night.

What you will learn:

  • Create a Repository
  • Create a Branch
  • Make and commit changes
  • Open a Pull Request
  • Merge your Pull Request
  • Celebrate you're now a contributor!

Time

6.30 PM: Come in and chill and chat

7.00 PM: A note from App Club

7.10 PM: Rowena and Prem showtime

8.00 PM: Ask them anything, question time

8.30 PM: Wrap up and chill

9.30 PM: Need to close the door (and let's go for after-event dinner/supper maybe?)

Venue

MM 4 (Computer Lab 4), Block B, Faculty of Computer Science and IT, University of Malaya.

About who you will meet

Both Rowena and Prem are Malaysians actually. They have been working overseas for years and they are passionate to contribute back to Malaysia local developer communities, that's how all this started :)

Rowena Foo is an Implementation Engineer at GitHub. She came from a consulting background in the Natural Language Generation field and enjoys working with customers to optimize their workflow. She's based in Chicago. In her spare time, she enjoys making sure her plants don't die and playing in social leagues, such as softball and wiffleball. (LinkedIn)

Prem Kumar Ponuthorai is an Implementation Engineer with GitHub, building on a software engineering background. An avid social learning evangelist and Git convert, Prem enjoys all things creative and loves to have discussions on development workflows. (LinkedIn)

The App Club is a student developers community built around the idea of autonomy in choosing what we wanna learn. It's education centric. We bring experts from outside to teach us the things we can't learn in our CS syllabus, both technical and entrepreneurial. We are based in University of Malaya. (Facebook)

Last line for working professionals/non-students: This event and club is open for everyone for the open-source spirit. The App Club is fully run by volunteers. Feel free to buy us pizzas for future meetups/event if you'd love to, and hit us up if you'd love to share something with the student communities in the future!
