This blog post is about the workshop I conducted at the Shankhnaad’19, the annual techno-cultural festival of Dr Ambedkar Institute of Technology for Handicapped, Kanpur. It was organised from 15th March 2019 to 17th March 2019. There were two workshops:

On Day 1, I conducted the workshop on Git & GitHub. The workshop started around 11 a.m. with the basic introduction to Git & GitHub. The time allocated for the workshop was 1.5hrs but I took around 2 hours as the audience had no previous knowledge about Git & GitHub. before wrapping up the workshop I also introduced them Open Source and about the Opportunities they can get by contributing to Open Source.

On Day 2, I facilitated the WebVR workshop conducted by Mr Mrinal Jain. It was the first time I met him. I was really inspired by the way he gave his talk on Web Virtual Reality, his way of getting students’ attention and keeping the two-way interaction. I must say I learnt a lot of new things from him and definitely the attendees learnt the Web Virtual reality and at the end of the workshop, everyone was almost ready with his/her first Aframe scene.

We both were also the Mentor & Judge of the hackathon.

But, that wasn’t the end of the festival. On the last day, there was an EDM night and We both had an awesome evening that day at the concert of The MixTape.

And now it was finally over, Me and Mrinal Sir took the cab and reached out to the Nearest McDonalds to have our last meal of the fest together. And also the last selfie 😛

It was really great to be the part of Shankhnaad’19 and I would like to thank Shivansh Dubey for inviting me to speak and mentor at Shankhnaad’19.
