Git, GitHub and Open Tech Workshop - I

University students engage in number of projects. Many of them being group projects, they don’t seem to have in-depth knowledge on how to use proper software tools to make life much easier.

I have plans to hold four workshops for four batches in my department which is Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering department, improving the knowledge on open source technologies and version controlling to collaborate on projects.

This will be the first in this series and the target audience is the fourth year undergraduates who will graduate and go into industry and interviews in about few months. Workshop will give them hands-on experience in working as a team using version controlling.

Event will also introduce students to open source communities and technologies that they can contribute to. This will take place in University of Moratuwa, :sri_lanka:
