WHAT IS THIS EVENT ABOUT?
ACM-DJSCE presents to you a session on Git, a version control system used by many open-source software providers. The session is also important for everyone who wishes to explore the open-source arena irrespective of their year of study. As always, absolutely no prerequisites. The workshop is conducted to impart extremely relevant and practical knowledge to the student while not only covering the technical aspect, but also focusing on the theoretical aspect, i.e explaining how and why stuff works the way it is.
The session is going to be about Git, a distributed version control application for software developers. You will get to learn how to use Git and various functions associated with version control, including pulls, forks, commits, stages, branches, etc. Git is widely considered the best application to run version control for both software developing teams and open-source development. So, this session will provide an essence of version control through teamwork in software development.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
Git is useful for almost any software developer, regardless of what background they're from. This is because Git helps developers commit Version Control, that is, Git helps developers work with various versions of the project, and proceed development in various branches. This allows anyone to debug any errors or add any updates with ease; which is essential in software development. So, Git can act as your first foray into software development, which would help delve into it further more.
