About this event

Have you ever worked on a project and accidentally messed things up? Or maybe you wanted to go back to an earlier version of your work but couldn't remember what you changed? This session is designed for anyone who's ever felt frustrated with keeping track of changes in their work.

We'll introduce you to Git, a version control system that acts like a magic time machine for your projects. Git keeps track of every change you make, allowing you to rewind and see any previous version at any time.

But Git on its own doesn't let you share your project history with others. That's where GitHub comes in. Think of GitHub as a giant online storage locker specifically designed for Git repositories. It allows you to easily share your project with others, collaborate on changes, and see who made what modifications.

This session will be a friendly and hands-on introduction, perfect for beginners with no prior knowledge of Git or GitHub. We'll break down the key concepts in an easy-to-understand way, and you'll walk away with a basic understanding of how to use these powerful tools to streamline your workflow and keep your projects organized.
