Introduction to Open Source

With the onset of the new batches of students in the college, we bring to you an Info Session on what GDSC is! why and how you can get involved! and while Google Developer Student Club at IIIT Kalyani hosts its third installment of this open source event called Winter of Code, we thought it'd be nice to give the freshers a quick insight into what actually do we mean when we talk about Open Source.

About this event

With the onset of the new batches of students in the college, we bring to you an Info Session on what GDSC is! why and how you can get involved! and while Google Developer Student Club at IIIT Kalyani hosts its third installment of this open source event called Winter of Code, we thought it'd be nice to give the freshers a quick insight into what actually do we mean when we talk about Open Source. Attend the event, build your first portfolio website and take back prizes!

Here's a list of task to complete before the event to get the most of this session.

* Watch this video on Git: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ReR1YJrNOM

* Watch this video on GitHub: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBy1zgt0XPc

* For a detailed walkthrough, refer to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMnWJ30tMSU and show some love :)

* Try installing Git by watching any tutorial you like on YouTube (suggestion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2j7fD92g-gE) . For any doubts regarding the same, ping on any channel in the GDSC server and we'll help you out on our GDSC Discord Server.

And with that done you should be good enough to come and understand what we talk to you about and why is it important for the next 4 years. After the quick insight into open source, you will also be taught how to make your portfolio website in a way so simple, you will need absolutely "no coding experience" for it, given you come prepared with the 3 things we asked you to do above. Now the fun part:

- we'll give you a week to work on your portfolio site, so you need not worry about being the fastest.

- on new year's we will announce the top 4 most appealing portfolio websites and they'll receive prizes from GitHub and Auth0!
