(Haider Ali Punjabi) #692

Hello folks!

I am a student at Tyndale Biscoe School, Kashmir. I started a Code Club in my school this year, and started to teach coding to my batch mates and juniors. I have almost finished my high school, but will continue giving sessions to the students of my Alma Mater.

In the part of the world where I live, people lack information about stuff like open source, Github, etc. My main mission is to introduce modern coding methods to people here, and have started doing it by teaching in my own school.
My high school is the first one here to use Github, and write open source code. You can check our Github Organisation

I learnt about the Github Education Community today, and believe that it is going to help me a lot in my mission,

Cheers

(Temmyadex) #694

Hello everyone,

My name is Temidayo, PM at iQubeSDP a skill learning platform, Assistant Instructor/Organiser at GDG Unilag (a student tech community group that taught and learn Programming and Software Development every semester), Assistant Tech Community Organiser. I teach Intro to Web design/development and Kids Coding using Scratch. iQubeSDP, A platform to get the kids and fresh grad from ground up in technology skills as it is the new oil in Africa and the best is to get best brain and fresh mind into the field to channel their brain capacity to providing solution and using technology to solve local problems.

Our teaching approach is not to assume that everybody have any prior experience in technology and considering the update and current happening in tech environment as against the old tech skill in the school curriculum.

Fork some community repo to try new things and push up my own codes for sharing and review, then my first play-around design was hosted on github page.

We are not saying the school is faulty but we are training the bright minds to see how to channel the knowledge to problem solving skills. And few of our common slogan is #Learning is #Fun, the Higher you go the stronger you become. #teachers #misc and we do have :smile:

(Simon Vogl) #704

Hi all,

I am Simon, besides my work I teach lectures in sensorics and base cources in C++ at the University of Applied Sciences (FH) in Upper Austria. I have ventured into Github classroom mainly for the c++ course, where we have around 80 students per year.

We have a constant lack of tutors so I wanted to give our students feedback early and automated for their individual assignments. For that, I have set up a small node.js server (‘gluebot’) that interfaces between github and a CI server - in my case buildbot. Works somehow, but I had to work around a few race conditions(!) . If somebody else has done this before - which CI server are you using?

Simon

P.S. I can share the code, but it needs more documentation :slight_smile:

My handle is: NicoleAbuhakmeh and I am currently using it to host my own website for traveling.

Thank you!


(Brian) #712

Hey everyone,

I’m Brian and I’m an Instructional Coach/teacher in Indiana. I do a lot of programming for my team, mostly in JS and Google Apps Script. My district doesn’t offer any CS courses other than AP Computer Science, which is out of reach for most of our students. I’m trying to get some introductory courses started, focusing on web development (HTML, CSS, JS) and Python. If you’ve started K12 programs, I’d really appreciate tips or materials.

I use GitHub personally (bennettscience) for side projects and websites. I’m also thinking through how to structure a course curriculum through GH repos.


(Octavian Gheorghiu) #713

Hi everyone,
My name is Octavian Gheorghiu and I am a teaching fellow at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. I am part of the Research Cluster 3 with Dave Reeves and Tyson Hosmer. We will be exploring the topic of living architecture, using bottom up processes, game engines and machine learning to explore novel design methods. Our test case will be the design of a small colony on Mars.
Regards,
Octavian
