How GitHub uses GitHub - Startup Edition


About this event

Join Christopher Harrison, Senior Enterprise Advocate at GitHub, as he walks through a hands-on workshop for scaling your startup on GitHub.

What’s in store:
As a startup, your focus is on building the next big thing, on bringing together the talent who shares your vision. But how do you manage the development process? How do you use the tools available to you? What tools are even available? Let's answer those questions and more!

In this interactive, hands-on workshop we'll explore DevOps and GitHub for Startups. We'll walk through common scenarios and discuss best practices. We'll see how to use the full breadth of options available in GitHub for startups. We'll explore how GitHub uses GitHub to build GitHub. You'll leave this three-hour workshop with actionable learnings you can use to improve your processes, allowing your organization to move fast, and respond to challenges, all while not breaking things.
