Intro to Version Control with Git

Version control is essential for large-scale development.  However it also has great benefits for new programmers. It's also useful for web developers of all types, whether you do basic HTML/CSS by hand or use a large framework like Drupal/Django/Wordpress.

We'll look at the basic concepts of the Git version control system and see how it can help developers of all types and at every level. Even beginners!

Our meetup is located at START Houston, a co-working space at 1121 Delano St., just east of downtown Houston, TX. Please RSVP (even if you're a "Maybe"!) to assist us with capacity planning.

Share your Lightning Talks! A "lightning talk" is a quick mini-presentation (5 minutes maximum) on any development  topic you'd like.  We'll save time for 2-3 of these each month: to save a spot, post a comment with your talk's title/topic. Beginner topics are always welcome!

Presentations Wanted: If you'd like to share a topic with the group at an upcoming, let's talk!

    The following link helps answer a LOT of the questions that came up last night about HOW Git works and WHY it works that way. It also compares Git to other systems. I may email this out as well. http://git-scm.com/book/en/Getting-Started-Git-Basics

    Is it okay if I make it late (around 7:30pm). I just finished up work in Katy.

    Hey! Can I do a shout out about Startup Weekend on April 25-27? Won't take but a minute or 2. http://houston.startupweekend.org/

      Sure. Do you just need me to mention the event to promote it

    • Benjamin O.

      I'll be there. Give me 30 seconds, maybe 60, to shout it out. I think I left my fliers at home, though.

    We'll be meeting in the garage space, due to a SXSW wrap-up party going on in the main space. Don't be alarmed! We haven't been canceled!
