Github is probably the world's most popular developer resource for sharing code collaboratively. However, most developers haven't had the opportunity to gain enough experience with it yet.
So this is a workshop to give you practice and confidence using Git and Github. 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. Or if you just want to practice your existing Git skills, that is okay as well.
Please bring a laptop with you to this event. There will not be a slide presentation, this event is purely practical
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 git branches and merging
This workshop is focused on using git as a developer and will not be diving under the covers of git, or covering any deep implementation details of git.
