We are glad to announce a very special GitHub Training Workshop event. We convinced (asked kindly) GitHub Training, the offical training team from GitHub, to stop by Copenhagen and give a full-day workshop on Git - all for free!

The event will take place at 7th June 2013, 10:00 to 15:00, at Founders House.

We have space for 50 people, and we expect to the seats to be taken quickly, so please register on the Eventbrite page.

The format is a combination of both university-style lecture and hands-on workshop, so bring your laptop!

Our Foundations class helps you, as a newcomer to Git and GitHub, fully grasp the the concepts and application of distributed version control so that you can effectively begin using this productivity-enhancing suite of tools. During this live training course, we’ll explore the foundations of Git and GitHub through practical every-day commands and processes. We’ll conclude with workflow ideas and practical tips that will get you on the road to mastery of this revolutionary version control system.
