All Hands Active

It’s time for a lesson in version control. Maybe you don’t write code, but expect to be in a workplace that does. Maybe your work has nothing to do with computers and you only write arduino code in your spare time, but really wish you could remember how the code worked 2 weekends ago before you messed with.. errr, “improved it” after a few beers at the shop last Saturday. Hell, maybe you’re writing a book and want to keep a versioned backup of that document to look back on later.

For all of these things, git can help.

Nate will be down at AHA for a workshop Monday, December 3 at 7:00 pm to teach you all the things you’ll need to know to authoritatively put “I don’t suck at git” on your resume. We’ll cover the following and more:

- What is git?
- What is the concept behind git?
- Common uses
- Creating a git repository
- Adding/removing files to and from git
- Ignoring compiler detritus
- Tracking file changes
- Branching, merging, and even resolving file conflicts
- Sharing your repository with others
- Using a repository shared by others
- Github basics

The workshop should run about 3 hours. No prior knowledge of git is required, but you will probably want to bring a computer to work on to get the most out of this class.
The cost will be $15 via cash or PayPal and all moneys collected will directly benefit All Hands Active.
