December KyOSS: More fun with Git: Collaborating, branching, and merging

Due to popular demand, the Alan-and-Jeff roadshow returns to the KYOSS December meeting for part 2 of the free Git workshop. We'll continue more-or-less where we left off last time, covering some more advanced topics like branching, merging, and collaborating with others in a common Git repository.

If you plan to attend:

  • Bring your laptop (free wifi is provided at LVL1). This is an interactive workshop.
  • Make sure you have read through the slides from part 1.
  • Make sure you have a GitHub account.
  • Make sure your Git global config is setup (see the part 1 slides).
  • Have some git repo hosted on GitHub (anything -- it can even be a toy repository, or the one from the part 1).

Here's a handy crib sheet that includes instructions on installing git and setting up github, plus video of the first session and other goodies:

See you December 12!

Come and join us! We usually have between 15 and 20 Linux users, admins, and programmers show up. Good conversation and networking and, often, a great presentation or two.

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at LVL1, Louisville's Hackerspace, in the rear of 814 East Broadway (south side of Broadway, between Logan and Shelby streets).

If we don't have an announced program, feel free to come with a discussion topic or a presentation to make to us! (Or just come and join the conversation!)

You can park in the ORI parking lot behind the building on Shelby Street. Keep up on the latest by subscribing to our KYOSS discussion list. Just send an email to [masked].

    Jeff and Alan did a great job, again. Presented Git concepts and features with the comprehensive details to aid any life long learner in this digital age to add this tool to their toolbox. There's ls, vi or vim, cut, copy, paste, and GIT.

    A great workshop on 'git' by Jeff Squyres and Alan Blount, two professionals who really know their stuff!
