From the resource:
You know how to use a computer, right? Obviously that’s true since you’re reading this, but that doesn’t mean you know how a computer works. You probably have some idea that electricity, circuits, binary and other computer stuff are working together to make the thing run, but for most people there is a little bit of magic involved. And when somebody asks you to explain how something like a computer works, it suddenly becomes abundantly clear how much you don’t know about these things you use all the time. In similar fashion, this is how I understood GitHub. So I wanted to dedicate this blog to discussing how my understanding of GitHub, a tool that I’ve used throughout the CHI fellowship, has changed with teaching it in a workshop. There is still a little bit of magic involved for me, but considerably less so.
