Git & Github kickstart workshop

Github is probably the worlds most popular developer resource for sharing code collaboratively. However, most developers haven't had the opportunity to get going with Git yet.

So this is a beginners workshop to give you practice and confidence using git. If you have not used git very much and are unsure what clients to use, how to work with git log, git status and multiple repositories, then this is the workshop for you.

For those who already are comfortable cloning and forking projects, I plan to create a more advanced course in the coming week. This workshop is purely for beginners.


Please bring a laptop with you to this event. There will not be a slide presentation, this event is purely practical

6pm - find the Salesforce office on 27th foor
6.30pm - workshop starts

By the end of this workshop you will have:
* git command line / graphical tool set up on your laptop
* understanding staging, committing and pushing changes
* working with git status and git log to manage changes
* experience using github for new repos as well as forking & cloning
* managing multiple repositories easily with git log
* working with pull request
* using github organisations

This workshop is focused on using git as a developer and will not be diving under the covers of git, or covering any implementation details.

Important: Access details

Please ensure your full name is used when registering as this is needed by building security to let you in.

Finding the office in Tower42

As you enter Tower42, take the escalators to the building reception. Upon giving your name you will receive a visitor pass for the building.

Go to the far right and go through building security, your bag will be scanned and you pass through a metal detector.

Once through security, take the escalators immediately to your left - following the blue path. Walk all the way round to lifts and take the lift to the 24th floor.

At the 24th floor, get out of the lift and cross the hallway. Take the blue lifts to the 27th floor. Exiting the lift to your left you will find the Salesforce office.

    I'm working on an online version of the git workshop I have been giving, its still work in progress, but I hope you find it useful.

    This will be changing quite a bit over the next month, so I'll send a message round to the LJC when I think its finished :)

    I also have a bunch of git tips and tricks on my blog:

    Thanks again to all who came and I'll try do another session sometime for those who couldnt make it.

    I am running the same git workshop on Tuesday 5th of March as well, still some places left.

    If Tuesday fills up then I can check if the venue is free on Thursday (and I have enough energy left).
