How To Submit Homework

We will be submitting the homework via GitHub. The reason for this is to have a centralized place for homework, as well as teaching folks how to use a revision control system and how to interact specifically with GitHub.

Reading:
Learn about git at http://git-scm.com/bo...­ (You only need to read this page)

To do:
- Create a github account at www.github.com
- Install and configure git on your local machine as per https://help.github.c...­
- Fork the MySQL Marinate repo as per https://help.github.c...­
The URL for the MySQL Marinate repo is https://github.com/Sh...­

- To demonstrate that you can submit homework, open and modify the 01Intro/homework.txt file
- Then commit your work locally:
git add 01Intro/homework.txt
git commit
- When you're done, commit your work up to the github server:
git push origin master

When doing homework, remember to commit locally often. I would recommend committing up to the github server whenever you finish a question or a part of a question. Pretend at any time your local machine may die; how much work are you willing to lose? (5 minutes' worth? 3 days' worth?)

When you're done with your homework, submit a Pull Request as per https://help.github.c...­

If you have trouble and need help, ask away in this discussion thread!

Hi Sheeri,

I downloaded the GIT Windows interface. I am not great with command line so I fiddled around, and I believe I have managed to create the repository and fork to your site. Can you see my profile?

Thanks,

Rita

Hi Rita,

I don't think I can see you until you commit and push your changes upstream, so I am unable to confirm until then.

Yep, Rita, I saw it, you should see a message back from me from your pull request (I commented and closed it).

So far I haven't had any luck with the OSX client. The instructions seem to be specific to the Windows version, and don't match up with what I'm seeing in the OSX GUI client. I can't for the life of me locate a "fork" button or menu option anywhere...

Really common problem ( read this ). Check the ORIGIN section in your .git/config file for starters. Hope you get there.

got as far as git commit, got dumped into a text editor, it's been too long since I have used this and I can't edit, save, or get out of it.
