Intro to Git

  • May 12, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Have you ever lost code and been really frustrated? Have you needed a line you wrote two days ago but saved over? Maybe you want to code with other people but are tired of sending zip files back and forth via email? Are you just getting started coding and want to learn best practices for how and where you should save it?

This meetup will introduce you to Git, a version control system. This event is perfect for beginners as we'll show you the tool many developers use to collaborate and back up code. If you're a developer and you are not using a version control system, you should come out too as it's an absolute must for a developer's workflow.

This event will be hands-on, so we encourage you to bring your laptops as we'll be doing real examples and practicing together. If you want to get ahead of the curve, you can sign up for a free account over at and start reading some of their documentation.

    So, I know that I can type "git help" to get a list of git commands, but I was wondering how I could learn what the "-m" and other options/flags mean. And I discovered that "git commit --help" was what I needed!

    I learned that I can use Git to host my professional website as a repository on projects that I'm working on. I currently use Wordpress, but I have to pay in order to do the really fun stuff. Since hosting on Git is free and it will show that I know how to use Git, that's a win, win!

    I learned a lot about Git last night that I'm going to use for my future projects. Thanks so much to the speakers/organizers of the event!

    The presenter did a great job introducing Git in a fun way that the newbies could understand. It was nice being around other women who were just as passionate about technology as I am. I will definitely be attending another event!

    I am sorry to cancel at the last minute. I really wanted to attend this. Unfortunately, I had an emergency pop up that I have to deal with.

    Haha..this is right on time. My Developer is pulling his hair out because I didn't want to learn Git...this should make it easier to work with him!

    Thank god for this! I am fighting with github right now! I find it not intuitive and their documentation lacking so looking forward to an jn-person demo and explanation.
