Thanks for the suggestions - Like I mentioned earlier I do understand that
you are trying to make sure that the topics stay faithful to the theme of
the day - no offence taken.
If I were to go ahead with the talk - the demo that I mentioned earlier
would be taken using simple arduino sketches (blink etc) and fritzing files
to demonstrate that OSHW enthusiasts can use Github as well.
As the Arduino Programming Language is a independent topic in itself - I
don't think it would be fair to club it with github as a talk/demo.
Trying to figure things out.

I have not used github in that context and hence will not be the best

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
of a computer]
I understand that your suggestions are aimed at making talk more
towards the overall theme - but I guess
there's no harm in having a
training session as I'm sure not a lot of
people may have started of
github, at least not the newcomers.
The final decision is in the organizers hands - please let me know
I do agree with Mehul's view, also there is session on the same topic
happening @ ILUG Meetup on 23rd. So as you mentioned initially, if you can
find some relevant topics with reference to Arduino, Open-Hardware an
github will give more sense.
Another suggestion from me is to Introduce "Arduino Programing Language",
prepare some examples on the same, publish it on your Github account. And
demonstrate/ explain these programs with basic Github features for
publishing/sharing the code with community.
(**We are not trying to discouraging you :) , just want to make sure that
the proposed sessions are relevant to the event title.)
