This month's KyOSS meeting:

Tonight: A hands-on workshop, led by pros Jeff Squyres and Alan Blount, on Git, the version control system that everyone who works with computers should be using. It's not just for programmers anymore. Writers, web designers, anyone who needs to keep a record of the versions of their work should know it and be using it.

Rather than just watching us talk about git, the workshop will be hands-on. In order to participate, please:

-- Bring a laptop to the meeting. Free wifi is provided at LVL1.


-- Signup for a http://github.com/ account before the meeting. You don't have to know anything about Github; just sign up for an account before the meeting.


Git ( http://git-scm.com/) is a distributed version control system (don't worry: we'll cover what all those words mean in the workshop :-) ). It's pretty awesome, and is fully open source. Git is used by Linus Torvalds to maintain and develop the Linux kernel source code. But git can be (and is) used for much smaller projects, too.

This tutorial will cover the basics of Git. If it goes well, we might do a more advanced tutorial at a future meeting.


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). 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]. Register and log in to our web site at www.kyoss.org. Keep up on the very latest on our IRC channel: freenode/#kyoss Google StreetView map for LVL1
