Teacher takeover at GitHub Universe: Call for Proposals

:wave: hi teachers. Got some exciting news! :fireworks: :comet:

##GitHub Universe is coming 10-12 October in San Francisco and the Call for Papers is open.

##Key data:

Would love to see talks from teachers doing innovative things with GitHub and learning.

Woah, does GitHub Universe has really call for papers?

So GitHub does have their own Journal or what? IPF it’s what?

:wave: @sant0ro GitHub doesn’t have a scholarly journal if that’s what you mean, but the call for proposals is for our user conference.

Oh I see, so what kinda of papers does GitHub expects? It’s possible to propose an academic paper, like something related to the “Internet of Things” scenario?

I just doesn’t understand correctly what it’s this call of paper. :sweat_smile:

I don’t work for GitHub, so this is my interpretation of things. I think it’s more like a call for talk proposals than a traditional call for papers as you might expect from an academic conference or journal. There’s a bit of information in the CFP site on what they’re looking for. Assuming you can fit your talk cleanly within one of the 4 tracks (Code, Architecture, Operations, People), the rest of the guidelines are pretty broad, so should be fine.
