Getting Started With Git and GitHub & Unfolding Opportunities in Open Source

Looking to get started with Git and GitHub?

Did you always wonder what is Open Source and How you can contribute to it?

Do you need to collaborate with a team? Do you want to work on an open source project?

Then this session is for you. We will start from the basics of Git and GitHub and dive into the world of Open Source and all the exciting opportunities it holds for you.

During this two-hour session, you will get a general overview of Git version control and GitHub from Mritunjay Kumar Sharma, a former GSoC Scholar @RTEMS and SiH’20 Winner.

We will be joined by Ekta Mishra, Co-Founder @ Code for Cause, SDE Intern @ Red Hat and an Outreachy Finalist who will discuss what Open Source is? how you can contribute to it? What different programs like GSoC, Outreachy, MLH Fellowship, etc. Learning to use Git and GitHub is the first step towards getting familiar with Open Source and managing projects efficiently. This is the objective of the workshop for the 1st year members who are just beginning their journey to programming. Along with understanding what’s what all we can do with Git, it’s equally important to understand how to do it well.

No prior programming experience is necessary.
