(Jackson Gomes) #1323

Hello everyone!

I’m Jackson (@jacksongomesbr), a Computer Science professor at Centro Universitário Luterano de Palmas, in the beautiful, pleasent city of Palmas, Brazil.

I teach CS topics, mainly algorithms and programming (front-end, back-end), computer graphics and image processing, compilers, formal methods, HCI and UX, math for CS. I’m also a researcher on data analysis and knowledge discovery.

I’ve been using Github for the past 4, 5 years to publish starting projects and educational content, but right now starting to use Github Classroom. My interest in Github Classroom is the ability to introduce my students the concepts of software development and source code management, includind integrations with other services for tasks like automating test and deploy.

I’ve embraced open science and open knowledge and, besides open source software projects, I love to write books and educational contents delivered freely, now using Markdown and Pandoc.

I hope to be able to learn and contribute here.

Hello everyone, thanks for inviting me to this community.
My name is Ruslan Dautov.
I am a research assistant at Shenzhen University(Big Data Institution).
Our student using source control to learn Apache Spark code and how to collaborate in the teams.
We want to reach more CS students and prepare them real industry or science work.

Thanks for the great opportunity!

(Digitalhoax) #1326

Hi Scott, hi everyone,

This is Lennert from Kassel University, Germany. I work at the Software Engineering Research Group where we teach Programming Methodologies and Software Engineering courses in which we make use of GitHub. We also use GitHub for our research projects.


(Bmontana Edu) #1327

Howdy! I’m Bill. I teach high school CS courses in Texas.

I’m fairly new to GitHub. I have used it to view other peoples’ projects, but have not contributed. I have found Gist helpful in the classroom, but I think GitHub Education may be better for tracking student work. I hope the learning curve isn’t too great to make it too much trouble for students.

Down the rabbit hole! :rabbit::mushroom::tophat:

(Raúl Montes) #1328


I’m Raúl, I teach Web Technologies and Applications course at Pontificia Universidad Católica, Santiago, Chile. It’s been almost 6 years teaching this course and around 3 years fully using Github for it. We use it to share all the course contents, using Issues as our forum, and of course so each student can have their own repository for the project they work on during the semester. It’s been a great way to organize the course!


(Sara Miner More) #1329

I’m Sara. I teach CS at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

(Rcs Abate) #1333

Hi everyone,
My name is Andrew Abate and I am the Computer Science department chair at Riverdale Country School located in Bronx, NY.

We are exploring use of Github with our courses this year. Last year, a couple of our upper level courses used Github to colloborate on long term group projects. This year, we are investing Github for classrooms.

Happy to connect with everyone!

(Patrick Martini) #1334

Hi everyone!
I’m Patrick(@trickmartini), a Computer Engineering student at Universidade de Santa Cruz do sul.
I have created my own classroom to help others students and spread the advantages of using this tool with the others students and teachers in my course.

(Donal Heidenblad) #1335


I am a lecturer at the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland where I teach programming and technology courses. I use github (@donalus ) to develop my classes and consider source control concepts to be an important skill for my students to graduate with.

(Amalong) #1336

What an impressive community of teachers!

I’m Jared Amalong and I am the Computer Science Coordinator at the Sacramento County Office of Education and part-time instructor at Sierra College in Rocklin, CA.

I live in Northern California :sunrise_over_mountains: and my interests include :running_man: and :swimming_man:. I have two :dog:'s. I really enjoy working with the wonderful high school IT and CS teachers in the Sacramento Region. I am looking forward to the Campus Advisors course and sharing the experience with others!

(Sneshyba) #1337

Hi, I’m Steven Neshyba, at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington (USA). My colleagues and I have a collaborative project in which we are using Python, via Jupyter Notebooks as a scaffold, to create computational guided inquiry (CGI) modules for undergraduates in Chemistry and Climate Science. The CGIs lead students to analyze data (e.g., real geophysical or laboratory data) by creating graphic displays, numerically integrating difficult functions, solving time-dependent equations. I’m excited to see how GitHub Education can make this collaboration work!

(Sasha Ivanov) #1338

Hello all! My name is Sasha Ivanov :man_technologist:t2: and I am teaching the iOS Development :iphone: course at the University of Calgary in Canada :canada:. I am interested in using GitHub in the classroom and was introduced to this fantastic community of teachers and GitHub promoters :robot:! Some of my interests include iOS development, designing for augmented reality, and creating information visualizations :bar_chart:. I’m definitely excited to be a part of this community and see a bright future ahead for GitHub’s involvement in classrooms around the world :earth_americas:.

(Tom G) #1339

Howdy! I’m investigating using the GitHub Classroom as part of our Masters of Information Systems program here at Indiana University. I’ve been a GitHub user for years (previously employed as a developer), and hope GitHub can help my students perform even better.
