Welcome
In this workshop, you will learn about Git and Github, some of the most popular version control tools used in programming. We will cover the command line, commonly used Git commands and how you can utilize Git and Github to manage your own projects and to collaborate with others. You will be walked through step-by-step on how to contribute to EmojiScreen (https://github.com/brittanyrw/emojiscreen), an open-source project created specifically for those wanting more practice using Git and Github.

By the end of this event, you will leave with a foundational knowledge of Git and Github and will have made a contribution to a real project! The event will also provide a space for networking with other women in the DC tech community.

We welcome devs of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem!

Laptops
In order to maximize your benefits from this workshop, please bring your laptop. Extra computers will not be available at the event. Even if you have never coded before, you will be coding at this event!

Food
Arlington Tech eXchange (Excella Consulting) will be providing pizza for this event.
