Are you struggling to move your projects off of Codecademy?
Maybe you've wanted to move your projects to GitHub, but you don't know where to start?

Join us for a presentation from Autobooks software engineer Josh Klimaszewski, who will teach us the basics of GitHub. We're going to talk about  branches, forks, pull requests, merges, and more!
