Hands-on at GitHub Universe: interactive art, cozy lounges, and more

GitHub Universe September 13-15

Make the most of your time at GitHub Universe by visiting an array of interactive projects, exhibits, and sessions—from art installations to one-on-one time with GitHub experts.

Ask GitHub

Want some quality time with GitHub speakers, Services team members, and open source experts? Drop by the Ask GitHub lounge, located inside the doors, directly to the left as you enter the conference. In this area, you can find:

GitHub Speaker Office Hours GitHub speakers will adjourn to the Ask GitHub lounge after their talks, where they'll be available to answer questions. Swing by with yours.

Ask Services You can stop by the Ask Services booth in the Ask GitHub lounge to speak with a member of the Professional Services team. Sign up in advance for a free, 30minute session here. Space is limited.

Open Source Help Desk The open source community is well-known for their sociability online, but sometimes it’s nice to chat in-person too. Stop by the Ask GitHub lounge anytime to meet up with some of GitHub’s resident open source experts and enthusiasts.

Universe Lounges

Open all day, lounges are the perfect place to rest, recharge and connect with your fellow attendees throughout the conference. Swing by to interact with some of our awesome sponsors and learn more about what they’re up to.

Purple Lounge The Heroku booth will be showing off Heroku Flow, a continuous delivery methodology and tooling that can help you iterate faster and bring in the whole team to produce higher quality software.

Blue Lounge Meet the IBM Bluemix team at the Blue Lounge. They’ll have the ever-popular Bluemix foosball table, plus other demonstrations of Bluemix.

Green Lounge Swing by the Travis CI Developer Lounge to chat about their latest Enterprise release and find out how they can help improve your CI/CD workflow. Talk to their engineers and get instant help on how to improve and speed up your build pipeline.

Orange Lounge Talk to a Solutions Architect at the AWS outdoor parklet about your current challenges, your next project, or that crazy idea you have always wanted to try out in the cloud. Learn how you can use GitHub and AWS to take the friction out of your CI/CD pipeline and get your infrastructure ready to scale for your next million users.

Demo Desk

The Demo Desk will be open for in-depth demonstrations on everything from robots to testing automation.

Jibo, the world’s first social robot for the home is built on Atom and runs on Electron. The Jibo team will demo their Software Developer Kit (SDK), and show you how to push Jibo Skills (robot applications) to the little guy himself.

CircleCI will be running demos-on-demand, so stop by to learn how you can automate your testing and development cycle.

Compose.io will be showing off provisioning and app connection.

11:30am-1:00pm - Jibo 1:15pm-2:45pm - CircleCI 3:00pm-4:30pm - Compose.io

Art Installations

And finally, don’t miss the spectacular art installations created by local artists—from a gigantic balloon Kraken, to a vibrantly illuminated wall and colorful custom mural. These photo-worthy moments are brought to you by your friends at Axosoft, CircleCI and Mailchimp.

The 2016 Dodgeball Tournament raised $50,045

On Sunday, June 5th, nine companies showed up at Palega Recreation Center in hopes of bringing home the Octotrophy which—since 2013—had been with the long-standing champions, Heroku. Thanks to Constanza and our friends at the Dodgeball Society, the day was packed with high energy, fierce competition and laughs. Everyone showed amazing sportsmanship on the court, played well as teams, and looked like they were having a lot of fun. After a tough battle with Heroku in the finals, GitHub's team, Ace of Rebase, reclaimed the Octotrophy.

2016 winners GitHub

Best of all, we raised $50,045 for these five San Francisco nonprofits:
