Try Git - A distributed version control system

Come out and try git! We'll begin with a brief 30-minute overview. Then put your new skills to practice by trying out the most practical terminal commands.

The beginner challenges will cover committing, branching, and merging from examples we'll provide for you. For the more advanced participants, we'll also go over rebasing and the reflog.

So whether you're a complete beginner or have been using it for a while now, you'll be sure to pick up a thing or two.

    Anything specific we should have setup on laptops beforehand? Using a Windows laptop.

      Haven't tried Chocolatey, but if you have it, that's probably the easiest way.

      Git bash? Will that work? (I am tinkering in that, feels like a bash shell in *nix.)

    Hey everyone, thank you all for RSVP'ing for tomorrow's event! For setup, we ask that you install git and create a free GitHub account if you don't already have one. (Any modern OS should be fine.) And of course, we'll help you get set up beforehand if you need help. Looking forward to seeing you all! http://git-scm.com/ https://github.com/
