Source control is an essential skill for any software developer to manage their code base, keep track of changes, and coordinate major revisions with other team members. Git is the fastest growing open source source control system today. It's useful if you are working on a large distributed team, or working on personal projects.
In this workshop, you'll learn about how to set up your own Git repository, how to push, pull, fork, merge, and branch and more! Also, you'll set up a GitHub account to easily showcase your projects and learn from others in the open source community. Software is social!
• Your laptop.
• A modern browser with either Chrome and the "Web Developer" extension or Firefox and Firebug installed.
