The Trilug group is having Jimmy Thrasher speak about Git usage and
internals at a future meetup. Jimmy knows Git pretty well and has
spoken about it at BarCamp.
If you are interested the details are below.
Topic: The fundamentals of git usage and internals
Presenter: Jimmy Thrasher
When: Thursday, November 8, 7pm
Where: Red Hat HQ, NCSU Centennial Campus, 1801 Varsity Dr, Raleigh, NC
Git is a powerful tool that suffers from an abstruse and leaky user
interface and a somewhat steep learning curve. Using git effectively
requires a working knowledge of how it functions. In this talk you
will learn the very basics of using git along with what is happening
under the hood while you use it.
Jimmy has been programming since he was 7 or so and is currently a
freelance Rails and iOS developer. He has been using git since 2006
and depends very heavily on it for everything from production and
side-project code to configuration. When not programming, he spends
time with his family, attending church, helping to run a small
classical Christian school in Mebane (Mebbin, not Meebane), and
collecting hobbies. His superpower is spewing out useless trivia at
tangents to the current conversation. Did you know that North Carolina
has more varieties of fungus than any of the other lower 48 states?
