ProjectX has always a keen supporter of Summer of Code. Among the many aims of Summer of Code is help IT students upskill. Recently, I did a workshop for students to learn and get their hands dirty with version control software (git).
Git with it’s popularity and simple operations was the best choice I found for teaching beginners. The workshop files are posted on the Summer of Code blog (http://blog.summerofcode.co.nz/2009/07/31/code-management-git-workshop/)
