With this very inspiring quotes, Mr.Santosh purbey,CTO of Bitsinnovation started “Git and Github Workshop” formally. It is two days workshop which is supported by NTA, Bits innovation and Kings college, specially organized to promote girls in IT field.


He also gave some important  tips such as, “You should give high priority to emails when you enter into business life”.After some other useful tips and tricks for business,he started going onto the topic.He asked how many of us know about Git and Github and then he moved on to the next question as,”Do anyone of you know about the power or importance of git?”.Some of us gave somehow satisfying answer.

Then he started explaining what ‘Git’ really is, along with some perfect examples :


According to him,”Git is a free and open source distributed version control system that’s responsible for everything  related to GitHub that happens locally on your computer. It helps version control system by: updating new version of any solution, tracking all history and logs (logs include: what are the changes, who changed it, where the changes has been made and when ). It also supports working with development team for sharing of codes among team members at a same time. Along with these features it also supports files reversal or undo function to bring whole project to its earlier state.”

He,then steps towards the power of Git.Explaination he did,using following example which clarifies the power of git clearly was really awesome and user friendly simply it was easy to understand.



“Every individual can change it as per their need and desire”.

“If you are setting up Git for the first time, you need to update your name and email address”,he said.And also gave example example as given below:


According to him, “Without understanding the flow, it won’t be possible to perform any operation.For proper understanding of use and working mechanism of Git, we can refer to the following diagram”.


After teaching us about the the working mechanism of Gits,he then moved into all the codes that we will be using during these two days workshop and also in our programming.Here are the codes given below along with a title for each.
