    What did you do at this workshop? – Nate Eldredge Jul 1 at 17:10
  • Could you just clarify your workshop question? What will you do, will you present sth, or participate as an external invitee? – usergrad Jul 1 at 18:59
  • just attending the workshop. The selection for the workshop was kinda competitive, I guess – user110391 Jul 2 at 0:57

Most workshops would likely have little if any effect, other than to show your interest in the field.

There could be exceptions, of course. Long workshops (months), perhaps. Workshops in which you build something significant, perhaps. Workshops that result in letters of recommendation that highlight something especially interesting, perhaps.

You can mention such things in your CV, but don't expect a lot of bang.
