I have not used github in that context and hence will not be the best
person to guide.
As you are already aware, github is not technology specific - in fact in
github's educational vids, they explicitly mention that any 'knowledge
worker' can benefit [where a knowledge worker is any person who makes use
of a computer]
I understand that your suggestions are aimed at making talk more inclined
towards the overall theme - but I guess there's no harm in having a github
training session as I'm sure not a lot of people may have started of with
github, at least not the newcomers.
The final decision is in the organizers hands - please let me know

Like I mentioned if you can pleas eamend the Talk
title to "How to use
Github for Newbies" .
It makes hardly any sense to have a talk on "github for newbies" for
Arduino day. It would be more useful if you rather have "Arduino
Developer's Introduction to Github" where you cover github
introduction to begin with but also address scenarios that hardware
developers are more likely to face e.g. we taught a friend how to
store his KiCad source files on github since it's a XML format and can
be diff'd and we were supposed to use git hooks to run a process to
convert each build to a final PDF output which can be shared to the
Thus, it will be more helpful if you can address more specific issues
that Arduino Developers will face than just a github introduction.
