We sent out this email today to all SIGCSE attendees, but posting it here in case there are folks in Seattle who want to come to the meetup, or are curious about what the Education team is up to :slight_smile:

Here’s the full roster of events and sessions at SIGCSE 2017 this week in Seattle.


Thursday & Friday: Hands-on GitHub and GitHub Classroom Sessions

We’ll be offering two types of hands-on demonstrations for teachers. If you’re attending SIGCSE, sign up through the email sent from us in your inbox :slight_smile:

Introduction to GitHub at SIGCSE (45 minutes) A hands-on introduction to the basics of GitHub, facilitated by GitHub Education Liaison John Britton.

Introduction to GitHub Classroom at SIGCSE (45 minutes) An overview of how GitHub Classroom works. You’ll come away with an efficient workflow that helps students master real-world tools.

Join us for drinks, snacks, billiards, and all things GitHub. We’d love to see you there.

Friday: Pizza Party for Student Volunteers

We’re proud to sponsor Friday’s dinner from 5-7PM to show our appreciation for SIGCSE’s student volunteers. Thanks for your help with the conference!


Saturday: How Harvard, SFSU, and TCNJ use GitHub

Session info

In this panel, three professors will share how they used GitHub for their courses. You’ll come away with advice on the best way to implement GitHub in your course, whether it’s a 100-level survey with 200 students, or a project-based capstone course.


All week: Visit the booth (Exhibition Hall 112-114)

We’ll be there in full effect. Come by for a demonstration, ask questions, and grab stickers and other goodies for your students.
