    Is this going to be a basic Git talk, or is this going to describe real world workflows? I have found that people who have never seen VCS have a huge learning curve when it comes to learning Git.

      I'll cover both, but given how many options and different flows there I'll definitely leave time for some questions.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
