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.

... we'd love to hear where you are on your open source journey.
- Have you ever made an open source contribution before?
- Or maybe you maintain a project?
- What about GitHub Actions? Have you ever used them before? If so, what did you build?
We look forward to chatting with you in the comments. Have a great CodeLand 2022! 🌈

I have never made an open source contribution before or maintain a project. But I have used GitHub actions to update an image on my github profile.
That's great! Actions is an easy way to automate any number of workflows on GitHub from profile updates to complex CI/CD pipelines.
GitHub is really a great platform for automation it with cloud.
Thanks Gargee! We think so as well :)
Yes, I have made open source contribution to multiple projects as an attendee of Hackathon 2021. That was my 1st ever exposure to open source world :)
I have maintained my own graduation project based on Data Science & learned about different project management good practices.
Hadn't used Github Actions yet.
Great to hear Jayesh! Here's an easy guide to get a quick start on GitHub Actions:
I am new to GitHub this year but hope to start with open source contributions before the end of 2021.
Welcome! You're joining 83M+ individuals globally and are in good company. If you're looking for an open source project to contribute to, here are some easy ways to start looking:
I made my first two contributions last week, I am still trying to figure out where to contribute. I found great resources and I am eager to keep contributing.
Super excited to see GitHub's sponsoring CodeLand! 🙌🏼
I've been regularly contributing to my community's repo (it is open-source) to update our documentation.
And I'm always excited to learning more about and from open-source! 🤩
I use GitHub action to fetch and render my blog posts on my GitHub profile. But I haven't explored more. Maybe it's time for me to explore 😊
Almost all my projects, assignments are maintaining in GitHub. And I have made many open source project contributions since I'm an open source enthusiast.
When comes to the GitHub Actions, I have no words to express how much it has been useful for my projects. It makes everything easy and quick. After I learnt it, I always add GitHub Actions for my projects. But still I'm new to it (Started to learn it on last month😊😇). However, so far I have used Node.js, Deploy Node.js to Azure Web App, Docker image, Publish Docker Container likewise some basics😁.
GitHub is an amazing, useful and helpful platform to maintain our project easily💖🐙.
Or maybe you maintain a project?: If repositories count, then yes.
What about GitHub Actions? Have you ever used them before? If so, what did you build?: No, but I would like to learn about them.
I've made a couple of open source contributions. My first contribution was part of a Git and Github course I took when I started learning how to code. Most of my contributions I made after that were on newbie-friendly projects during Hacktoberfest.
I don't maintain an open source project right now, but I know that it in my future someday. I was going to create an open source for Hacktoberfest last year, but I wasn't able to get it ready for the celebration in time.
I haven't used Github actions before, but I've heard about it from others in the coding community so it is something I'd like to learn more and use in the future.
I have not made any open source contributions
Really excited to see GitHub's sponsoring CodeLand! 🙌🏼
Yes , Github Helps me a lot in my open source contribution Journey and also maintains all my projects.
GitHub Actions makes it easy to automate all your software workflows, now with world-class CI/CD. Build, test, and deploy your code right from GitHub.
I'm building something interesting .GitHub is an amazing Platform for Developers .

I started contributing to open source at Hacktoberfest 2020. The fact that we all use other people's open source code is amazing and very interesting because it enhances the feeling of belonging to a community, with the sense of solidarity and collaboration.
I also started an open source project this year: Github Profile Header Generator as a participation in the Dev.to + Microsoft Azure hackathon, so this is also a contribution to the community 😊
And of course I'm using github Actions to deploy this project to Github pages, this Github automation has a lot of potential. Currently the company I'm working for also uses it and it's amazing, it saves a lot of time 🚀.
I've found the hardest part of moving my organization toward licensing our code with an OSS license is explaining to non-technical management what open source licensing even is!!
Big fan of GitHub here.
In grad school we used github for all of our projects. While my company uses bitbucket now, I still use github for my personal projects and portfolio.
I have not contributed to an open source project but I would definitely like to. It's a bit intimidating though. I hope there is a chance to learn more about it during the conference.
Absolutely! You can also use this quick guide so hopefully it's less intimidating! docs.github.com/en/get-started/exp...
It is so great that GitHub is sponsporing CodeLand, thank you for that!
I did contribute to open source but not as often as I wanted actually. I am currently getting into GitHub Actions, because this will make my skills to the next level.
