GitHub Universe Online Event [Dec 8-10]

Hi everyone! This year’s GitHub conference will be hosted online here:
Read about it, tune in during the live presentations, and if you are up for it, sign up for any of the workshops !

What is GitHub Universe?

GitHub Universe is our annual marquee product and community event featuring GitHub product experts, software leaders, and enterprise teams who are building the world’s most important technologies. It’s a chance for our global interconnected community to come together and share best practices, learn from each other, and hear about GitHub’s newest products and features.

Who should attend GitHub Universe?

This year sessions are grouped into four channels based on interest/job function: Developer, Enterprise, Univers(ity) and Play.

  • Developer: geared towards open source contributors and maintainers running projects of all sizes, as well as developers looking to understand the latest software tools, techniques, and best practices.
  • Enterprise: tailored for senior leaders and decision-makers from global companies interested in transformation, security, scalability, and productivity.
  • Univers(ity): designed specifically for college students seeking the tools, techniques, and connections that will help expand their resumes and prepare them for their future.
  • Play: take a break, get inspired, or discover something new with entertaining performances, tutorials, and unexpected stories, all driven by code.

And Universe is flexible - you can focus on one channel, or decide to pick-and-choose sessions that are most interesting and relevant to you across the program. All talks will require basic software understanding, there will not be entry-level sessions.
