A workshop was organized for the students of Kanpur Institute of Technology, Kanpur where we introduced them about Open Source, Git and GitHub. The attendees were first and second year computer science students who had little to no idea about Git and GitHub. We also told them about GSoC and other open source programs, how they can contribute to open source projects and how it will help them in their career.
