I started teaching object oriented programming this semester at Rutgers University and looking for the ways to introduce github for team project and collaboration for team assignment in my class. I am using github enterprise edition for my work and wanted my student to have some understanding on how github works and how they can prepare to start their career using tools that are widely used in industry.

Hi everyone,

I’m Ludovic. I’m a teacher at Hetic in Paris, just like @Bunkermaster. I teach Project Management, Agile Methods and Python. I use GitHub in most of my personal projects.

Basically, I’m a geek. I’m kind of crazy about video games, books and human history.

I plan to use GitHub with my students more and more to improve interactions between all of us and prepare them to real world.

Hi, here at the Universidad Piloto de Colombia, we are using Github Classroom to make assignments for students. We use Github in some courses. I am part of the Network Programming and the Algorithms course.

(Mr Russell) #279

Hi my name is Dave Russell from Heyford Park Free School in the UK. I’ve just started teaching the new Computer Science curriculum. Is anyone else a secondary/high school using GitHub Education.

I’m a massive fan of git having used it in industry, I’d like to hear how your students are getting on with using git? e.g. How are they getting on using the Git commands, especially if using it at home. Can anyone recommend any resources for teaching git?

(Scott Sanicki) #280

@drussell-hpfs Welcome!

Due to the volume of introductions in this thread you might want to create a new topic for your question about using GitHub with secondary/high school classes to make it more visible.

Some open source lesson plans for teaching Git and GitHub have been posted here.

My name is Adam, and I’m currently teaching a course on DevOps at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. part of the course covers common tools used in the modern IT team, and as these students are not primarily developers, I wanted to ensure they had familiarity with version control systems.

They had a group assignment using Github to force them through the workflows of collaborative / social coding. I had them use the Github Automatic Page Generator to publish a website on a topic of their choosing, and they worked in teams of 7-8.

I’m not full-time faculty — in my day job I’m the IT Director for another college here at the university.

My name is Brian, I have just joined GitHub Education. I teach Software Engineering, AP Computer Science A (Java) and AP Computer Science Principles.

I am looking forward to using GitHub Education to create assignments for my students at all levels.

(Jan Suchotzki) #284


I’m Jan from Germany. For the last 15 years I developed Software in very different domains. The one consistent aspect in my work is learning and practicing to further improve my knowledge and help others see the overall and their own potential.

Currently I’m investigating an idea to bring small coding assignments to all schools in Germany. While there are already some good ways to do this online I would like to better integrate teachers into the process. My main goal is to give students very individual tasks, which are challenging for them and only take a few minutes so motivation always stays high.

I really like the idea and approach of GitHub classroom and would like to say thank you to the GitHub team.

(Tomáš Vítek) #285

Hi everybody,

I am Tomas. Together with several colleagues I teach introduction to programming in Java at King’s College London. We use an inhouse built system to mark students’ assignments. We let them upload their code and later in the course we will be requiring them to submit their code via git for assessment (we use github business for this).

(Tomas Sykora, jr.) #286


My name is Tomas Sykora (@syky27), I’m teaching at Faculty of information technology, Czech technical university in Prague, Czech Republic with.

With my colleges we teach 3D printing, see stuff at @3dprintfit. We are mostly using Github there for the teachers.

Hi everyone,

My name is Luis Romero, and I am a code teacher in the robotic school here in Sopó, Cundinamarca - Colombia.

We have about 60 students, and we teach mechanic, electronic, and programming in spanish.

(Mr Walker) #288

Hi everyone,

My name is John Walker, I teach IB Computer Science, Introduction to Computer Science, and Essentials of Game Programming in Portland, OR and you can see our classes at http://moodle.clevelandhighschool.org.

(Jean-Michel Bruel) #289

Hi. Congrats for this initiative. I teach git at undergraduate level in a Technical Institute and use GitHub and its CI facility (with Travis). I could appreciate free private repos before it was generalized for students. Looking forward to exchange on teaching experiences and best practices.

(Mr Dougall) #290

Hi all,

My name is Paul (@stpd11) and I teach, among others, Computing to Year 7s up to GCSE at Bourne Grammar School, UK.

We use GitHub to store and edit our teaching sites - www.bournetocode.com and www.bournetoinvent.com

I’m hoping to start using GitHub Classroom for my GCSE students to be able to submit their coursework. I love the idea of being to see exactly where their changes are without having to spend ages looking!

Thanks for the education initiative stuff :slight_smile:

(Yannick Lyn Fatt) #291

Hi my name is Yannick. I teach Dynamic Web Development at the University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica. We have 115 students and they learn and use Git/Github as part of their assignments and labs.

Thanks for all that you are doing.

(Christian Zang) #292

Hello everyone!

My name is Christian (@cszang). I am a postdoc at Technical University Munich, and I teach data science for ecologists from bachelor to postdoc level. In the advanced courses, I let the students use Git and GitHub as one essential component of well organised and reproducible collaborative research, and I plan to introduce Git also in the undergrad courses right from the start – following @mine-cetinkaya-rundel example!

Finally, a big thank you to GitHub, I greatly enjoy the free plan for academics, which is a fantastic thing!

(Mark Crovella) #293

Hi - I’m Mark Crovella, in the Computer Science Department at Boston University. We’re using githiub classroom for teaching in our course CS506 - Computational Tools for Data Science.
