Intro to Git for Security Professionals - WWHF WW 2021

This workshop is to provide an overview and introduction to the version control system Git. Git has grown tremendously in popularity over the past 15 years since it was released, helped along especially due to code hosting services including GitHub.com, GitLab.com, and Bitbucket.org. These sites are where open-source projects most commonly live. Any time that you hear about a new open-source security tool being released, it is mostly likely to be found on one of these sites.

This workshop will help provide an introduction to security professionals that may have no background in software development, that would like to start using their favorite open-source tool, or even more, to find ways to contribute back.

No development experience is required, and participants will finish the workshop with the tools needed to make their first contribution the same day if they choose to.
