The hands-on workshop is precisely curated for assisting student developers to understand the basics of Git and GitHub. The beginner-friendly in-person session also dives deeper into the beauty of open-source during Hacktoberfest.

Keeping the notion of Philippe Kahn, “The power of open-source is the power of the people. The people rule.” in mind, a workshop covering the simple use case of Git CLI to assisting the attendees in visualizing the concepts with GUI, the goal is to make the attendees understand the basic fundamentals in-depth.

The basic outline of the workshop is as follows:

  • Introduction to Git
  • Installation of Git
  • Basic Git Commands
  • Difference between Git and GitHub
  • Benefits of GitHub Student Developer Pack
  • Overview of GitHub Campus Expert Program 🚩
  • Celebration of open-source with Hacktoberfest
