Hey, CodeLand! We're GitHub and we're honored to be a Patron sponsor of this year's event.

Hi, CodeLand! Thanks for stopping by the digital GitHub booth. We're excited to connect with you here today!

GitHub is a development platform inspired by the way you work. From open source to business, you can host and review code, manage projects, and build software alongside tens of millions of developers across all levels.

Taking the intimidation out of coding

At GitHub, one of our missions is to help early-career software developers get started with open source and become regular contributors.

Part of the process of empowering the next generation of tech talent needs to involve demystifying the coding process, and encouraging coders to focus on the things that matter instead of mastering everything all at once.

Take GitHub as an example of this: everything we do as an organization is 80% other people's code! In exchange, we give back to our community by helping to improve and maintain the tools we love. This give and take is what open source is all about!

Code Automation & GitHub Actions

Automation is an evolution of coding that allows devs across all levels to automate their software workflows from building to testing to deploying. Why not offload some of your code tooling to GitHub to make the process smoother for yourself? With GitHub Actions, you can.

So happy to see you here! I have so much to learn still with GitHub, so I'm glad to see you support the newbies :D

I have made an open source contribution to a README file, not actual code, but it still counts. I used GitHub Pages to deploy my portfolio website and am maintaining it there. It took some getting used to but I love it now. I have only used GitHub Actions for generating my card automatically everyday.

Never contributed to open source, but I use GitHub for all my personal projects. GitHub Pages makes it easy for me to get my apps up and running quickly, without having to worry about domain registration etc.

Thanks for being a CodeLand sponsor!

Yes I have made a little contribution during hacktoberfest last year as God willing. It was an amazing experience.
Neither I have maintained any project nor used github actions yet.

I am also new to coding, I come from a 180* different industry. I have worked in healthcare for 25 yrs +, I got the tech bug in 2020 and now I am seriously looking into Web Dev/Software Dev/Design/Latino Community Advocate. I am so happy and priviledged to be part of such a fantastic conference. I am so happy that Github is part of this conference.

Hello Github!

I've been using you service for a number of years, and my current employer does as well! They are using Actions for CI so I am starting to learn them as well; however, I am excited to start using them for apps I build as I learn more about Android development!

Thank you Github! It's hard to imagine learning web development without such a resource!

Great to see Github at Codeland!

I'd want to contribute an open source contribution. I've managed a few small projects on Github using GitHub Actions and am still learning more about what I can do with the platform.

It's great to see you as a sponsor for such an amazing event!

I recently used GitHub pages to host my very first Bootcamp project. It was such an incredible resource for a "code newbie." I really appreciate all of the extra effort you put in to make new developers feel welcome.

Excited to see Github sponsoring Codeland 2022! I don't contribute to open source but I do contribute to my company's repo. I do want to get to a point where I feel comfortable contributing to open-source.

GitHub is always there for us early-career developers sponsoring dev events and communities❤ I was happy to see them sponsor CodeLand after also seeing them sponsor the #100Devs class on Git and GitHub in which there were so many raffles (including a laptop!).

The GitHub Student Developer Pack also provided me tons of value and gave me free access to so many amazing tools that have been helping me in my Dev journey🙌

My first open source contribution was during Hacktoberfest last year and with GitHub it was fun connecting with the maintainer of the repo and getting my first PR accepted🥳
