GitHub for the desktop now lets you mention other users and reference issues, just as you can on the Web.
It also works exactly the same on the desktop; just use the ‘@‘ symbol before names to mention friends or coworkers, and the ‘#’ to reference known issues.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Oh yeah — you can also use ‘:’ to add emoji to your commits and pull requests. Yay!
