Github Campus Expert Program is a flagship program by Github, especially for local leaders, with an aim to enrich the community with the right skills & knowledge.
In 2021, the GitHub Campus Experts Program will be celebrating its fifth anniversary.
The program has grown from a small group of handpicked students in 2016 to what it is now a group that spans across the globe, leading in-person and online meetups, conferences, hackathons, and more.
These students come from a range of backgrounds, but all have one thing in common: they are deeply passionate about technology.
In these past five years, the program has supported more than 250 students, building technical communities around the world.
As local leaders, Campus Experts know the challenges students face at college. They work closely with their peers to close the gap between industry and academia, creating new opportunities for students to learn industry-valued skills.
