Maybe I can help you!
I have some workshops.


(José Juan Reyes Zuñiga) #356

My name is José, I’m working actually in MakingDevs a company offering mentoring and training for experts programmers in topics around big systems. We’re moving the team to Data Science apps and mobile apps.

Actually we use Git and GitHub for almost all, for teaching and sharing code with our students.

In our social labor we’re teaching to use Git and GitHub in some universities.

Nice to be here!

P.D. We’re in Mexico

(Art Simon) #357

Hi! I’m Art Simon and I use GitHub and processing to teach AP Computer Science A (Java) at Lowell High School in San Francisco. I got a NSF mini grant through Bryn Mawr and SMU to develop the course. I’d love to get feedback. You can check the course out at http://apcslowell.github.io.

Any other AP Comp Sci A Java teachers out there?

(Kevin Gautreau) #358

Hello !

I’m a French web developer who give (Web) Development courses, and occasionally I teach about development good practices with git and Github.

I encourage my students to use Github during their projects.

(Michael Kühnel) #360

Hej, just realized that there is the GitHub Education Community.

I’m not a teacher. But trying to educate my colleagues as well as the local developer community to use Github not just for getting source code or applications. Instead I want them to give something back :octocat:

I’m going to give a talk titled »»What goes around come around« – How to get involved in Open Source« on our local webmonday meetup later this month. Maybe I finde additional ressources in this community.

My GitHub Handle is mischah

Cheers, Michael

Hi everyone!
I’m Patrick. I’m a grad student in geophysics at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I’m helping to setup an introductory numerical methods course for geological engineers here at UBC. I’m interested in helping science and engineering students learn good software development practices and I’m excited to introduce them to git and GitHub! My github handle is @Pbellive.

Cheers, Patrick

(Charlie Cuddy) #362

Hey everyone,

I’m excited to follow along, and learn from all of you right along side my students.

I’ve used GitHub for some personal projects and learning, but now am introducing it to my students as we compete in our schools first coding competition. We are also going to have our first computer programming course introduced next year and obviously plan to use GitHub as our students begin their journey into code.

Happy New Year,


(Phil Sinatra) #363

Hello. My name is Phil (@philsinatra), I am an instructor at Drexel University in the Interactive Digital Media department. We recently integrated git into our curriculum and it is now a requirement for all projects. GitHub is our preferred hosting service, and is now being taught to all of our students as part of their primary web development learning.

my name is Stefan Oppl (@oppl) and I’m an assistant professor of business information systems at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. I’m teaching a course on distributed interactive systems design and development for our undergraduate students in their 3rd year.

(Josh de Leeuw) #368

Hi, all.

I’m Josh de Leeuw. I use GitHub in my courses at Vassar College teaching computational modeling of the mind, brain, and behavior, and in a course about robotics.

(Scott Sanicki) #369

Hi Josh,

We’d love your feedback on the GitHub for Robotics comic book @mozzadrella wrote for us. We initially produced it for FIRST Robotics students, but have been providing it to teachers to help explain the concepts of Git and GitHub to students who are just getting started:


(Vanessa) #370

@jodeleeuw welcome!

Would love to know what Vassar students make in a course about robotics. Would you be open to sharing your syllabus with us?

(Brad Dennis, Ph.D.) #371

Hi Everyone,

My name is Brad and I teach software engineering courses at MSOE in Milwaukee, WI.

(Mohan Gummalam) #372

Hey - I’m Mohan Gummalam, an employee of Facebook, and as part of the “Engineers in Residence” program, we’ll be teaching students at California State University at Monterey Bay (CSUMB). Very excited about the opportunity to teach students!

(Eric Freudenthal) #373

Hi, I’m Eric Freudenthal. I’m a professor of cs at UTEP. I used github classroom for student submissions to my courses last semester (worked great) and would like to do so again. However, I’m having trouble creating the classrooms I need.
