The most important thing you can teach your students is how to learn more on their own. Your students start the semester at varying technical levels, and computer science concepts can be difficult to grasp. You won’t be able to fit everything you’d like to teach in the short time you have with them. With this in mind, you need a way to boost learning and take your classroom from studying syntax to solving real problems with code. That’s where hackathons can help.
GitHub Enterprise Cloud recently finished a security audit with the release of SOC 1 and 2 Type 2 reports.
GitHub Classroom is more efficient and reliable than ever before with performance improvements.
*Note: If you want to say “hi” to your fellow Community members, we encourage you to do so! However, please say hello in a reply to this Topic, instead of opening a brand new Topic. We try to reserve Topics for specific questions, idea discussion, or information sharing. Moving forward, any “Hello”-type Topics will be locked, and the author will be redirected to the most recent Weekly Welcome to introduce themselves to the Community.
