Git & GitHub Workshop(Session 1)



On Saturday, 27th October 2018 a Git & GitHub Workshop was organized for the all 1st, 2nd & 3rd-year students by the Mozilla Phoenix Club, JUET. The workshop was conducted by Me as a GitHub Campus Expert. During the workshop, participants learned the basics of GIT, understand the Git Flow, created a sample repository to play with and made their first pull request.


First, they got an overview of how the workflow of producing software works in IT companies. The about Git that Git is a version control system, which tracks versions of the project over time and most of its commands. We also worked with GitHub to gain an understanding of how to fork, clone, and contribute to projects by submitting pull requests.

The total number of attendees was more than 80.

If you are a programmer/ developer, you probably must have heard about Hactoberfest till now. Every October, Digital Ocean and GitHub ship out free Hacktoberfest t-shirts to thousands of people around the world. If never heard of Hacktoberfest then It is a program by Digital Ocean and Github, where you can easily win a T-Shirt just by making 5 pull requests (between 1st October to 31st October) to any open source projects on Github.

So, this year Mozilla Phoenix club also participated in Hacktoberfest and made pull requests to Open Source Projects on GitHub.
I organised an Hacktoberfest meetup for club members on 13th of October’18 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

I first started with the introduction to Hacktoberfest and telling them the registration procedure. After that, I gave a demo on making their first pull request to an Open Source Project with an open issue. Then everyone started contributing to Open Source projects and at the end of the meetup every member of the club had almost their two pull requests.

Its already been a week since meetup and most of the members have already made their five pull requests and completed their hacktoberfest challenge and those who are still making contributions I am there to guide them whenever they face the problem.
