December Focus Group for GitHub

11:00am PST on December 20th

Weโ€™d love to invite you to our winter focus group to help us understand more about how we can build a better GitHub! This is an informal session, and will be lead by Nat Friedman, GitHubโ€™s CEO. After a short round of introductions,weโ€™ll be asking questions like, โ€œwhat do you love about GitHub?โ€ โ€œWhat would you change?โ€ โ€œWhat do you primarily use GitHub for?โ€ And we encourage the group to have discussions along the way. So if you hear someone share something that you have experience with or would like to amplify or add on, please feel free to do so.
