Craftwork Paris 2018

The GitHub developer relations team is joining forces with Datadog in Paris in November to help you build a GitHub App in our new Craftwork event series. This workshop is open to developers of any skill level who want to learn how to use the GitHub and DataDog APIs to build better developer workflows. We’ll have stickers for everyone, too! Join us on Tuesday, 11 December at Datadog HQ (detailed address below).

GitHubbers will walk attendees through the process of creating their first GitHub App. This workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to the GitHub Apps flow
  • Probot, a great tool for getting started building GitHub Apps
  • Hosting code with Glitch
  • Using the Datadog API to gain insight into your open source projects

If you do not yet have a GitHub account, we ask that you sign up at for a free account before you attend the event. It's fast, easy, and of course, free. That way you'll be ready to go right out of the gate.

Please also bring a laptop computer, as Craftwork is a fully participative event!

The event will be held in at Datadog HQ, a short walk from Metro Strasbourg–Saint-Denis.
