👋 Teachers! Introduce yourself here

(Scott Sanicki) #132

:wave: Zeke. It’d be great if you started a connversation about how we might allow coding bootcamp students to request the Student Developer Pack in the future.

(Scott Sanicki) #133

Hello Zach. I hope you’ll encourage your instructors to participate here as well.

(Alexander Bazo) #134

Hi everyone,
I am a phd student at @UniRegensburg. I am teaching basic and advanced programming and software engineering classes. I encourage (and sometimes force) my students to use version control (especially git) for all their assignments and projects.

My teaching focuses on using the browser as a platform for rich applications. In my research I am trying to understand programmers individual behaviour while implementing software.

Kind regards and many thanks to github,
Alexander Bazo

Hey Matt. It would be :sparkles: if you’d start a topic about “Best practices.”

(Scott Sanicki) #136

Hi Sébastien. We’d appreciate your thoughts on this as well.

(Scott Sanicki) #137

:wave: Chad. Welcome. Have you requested a swag bag for the upcoming semester yet?

(Scott Sanicki) #139

:wave: Tommy. Would you be interested in talking about how to successfully design a curriculum that maximizes students’ employement opportunities?

(Philipschielke) #140

Hi, I’m Phil Schielke and teach Computer Science in Austin TX and my github handle is philschielke. Excited to use github in the classroom this fall!

(Scott Sanicki) #141

Hello Jaime. We’re looking forward to seeing :camera_with_flash: of you and your students with your GitHub stuff on Facebook or Twitter when your :package: arrives, and also to your first post. Welcome.

(Scott Sanicki) #142

Hey Bunkermaster. I’d :heart: to see a post by you on “Inspiring students through open source.”

(Yann Le Scouarnec) #143

Greetings Scott, I’m working on a couple new courses right now but I will try to squeeze a discussion starter on that topic.

(Jim Bowring) #144

Hi - Jim Bowring here. I teach Software Engineering two-course sequence at the College of Charleston and depend on Github and open source projects. This paper details my efforts. I intend to use more of the Github teaching resources going forward. Cheers!

(Readoc) #145

Greetings all:

I’m a professor at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI.

I primarily teach programming (Java, C#, PHP, Python, Android, etc.) and am in charge of our Graduate and Professional Information Security program.

When I’m not teaching I tend to work with the POSSE group (http:/foss2serve.org)

I’ve used Github quite often for student projects. I’m requiring it for my Fall classes and received my huge box of handouts a couple of week ago from GitHub (thanks again).

I look forward to learning much from everyone.

(James Abela) #146

Hello Everyone,

I am James Abela and I teach Computer Science. My students are using github to store their Python Challenges. You are very welcome to join in too at:

Best wishes

P.S. If you want to add a link to your school’s assignment page, just let me know. (I use a Google Form)

(Jiayu Zhou) #147

Hi, my name is Jiayu Zhou (@jiayuzhou ), and I teach Machine Learning in Michigan State University. I use Github for research projects, as well as collaborating latex writings.

(Tim Dams) #148

Howdy folks,

I’m Tim Dams , software development teacher from brave little Belgium.

I teach at the AP University Collega from Antwerp (famous for it’s diamonds and uhm… :slight_smile: ).

We’ve been using github (and the classroom) pretty extensively for the last two years and are intgrating in many courses in different ways (including thesis management, syllabus writing, team projects, etc). Looking forward to the new momentum that likely will happen with the github classroom in the next few months!

Keep gitting y’all!

(Lars Möllendorf) #149

Hi, I am Lars Möllendorf from the phaenovum Center for Young Scientists of Lörrach where I help enthusiastic pupils to learn programming. Currently I am organising RoboRAVE Germany a free and open robotics competition.

(Dzmtiry Varabei) #150

Good octoday, guys!

I’m Dzmitry Varabei from Minsk, Belarus.
Together with friends we run free JavaScript/Front-end course twice a year for 40 - 60 students.
We use GitHub ecosystem for almost all educational activities.

  • GitHub and gh-pages to store all our course materials (syllabus, assignments, slides, etc…).
  • Private repositories for the assignments and PRs for the implementation review.
  • Gitter as our communication channel.

Thanks, for your support!

Best Wishes,

Unlike many school projects, each team builds a web app in their technology of their choice and have to integrate between each other. For example, one team building an e-commerce website will have to process payment through another team’s banking API.

That’s really cool. I haven’t heard of anyone making their students integrate their projects across teams before. I bet it’s a great experience for them.

(Jesús Torres) #152

Hi everyone,

I’m Jesús Torres a.k.a. @aplatanado at GitHub and many other sites.

I’m a assistant professor at the Computer Science college of University of La Laguna in Spain. I teach courses about operating systems, software system development, embedded systems and related topics.

My courses are mostly focused in project-based learning. For that, GitHub and GitHub classroom are awesome tools and allows the students end up with a portfolio with their own work.

For my courses, I mainly develop software in C++ and Qt but I also usually use Python and Django (mainly) for my own projects.
