      Ahh. Don't press Enter. Here is another resource for those wanting to learn step-by-step. http://gitimmersion.c...­. (Sorry about the double post.)

    Brian, I recorded the presentation, just need to edit it a little before it's ready for public consumption. The slides are on my github account (http://goo.gl/U18yv), but there's really not a lot of content on them on their own. You'll also have to open the index.html file locally, I don't have these hosted anywhere yet, sorry. Matt, thanks for sharing that Github link, I'm sure people will find that helpful.

    Really bummed that I'm going to miss this meetup. Any chance you'll have some slides on slideshare or something similar, Joe?

    Those of you Windows users planning to play along tomorrow, it looks like msysgit is the preferred way to install git. You can get it from http://goo.gl/CCex4. Alternatively, I've heard good things about the Github client, which you can grab from http://goo.gl/V1bUa. Mac users can install git from http://goo.gl/wwI1M, or use brew if you have that installed. Linux users, I'm sure you should find it in your distro's package manager.

    I guess that's a no then?

      It wouldn't be so annoying if it didn't bump comments out of order. I don't know when they did this, but it's pretty bad.

      Yea, I believe its been this way for a long time now. I agree with your gripe plus I want to be able to use the enter key (for a new paragraph perhaps) without it making a post. They could have a post button and the enter key makes a new line. They way they have it now, you have to do shift-enter to get a new line, which I always forget. BTW FB does it the way I like

    To give people an idea of what to expect: I appreciate that this isn't exclusively a developer group, so I plan to start out really basic and talk a little about what version control even is, how it works and why it's important. Then I'll move in to how git works, why it's better than svn, and some really basic commands for doing what you need. Then I'm hoping to open it up to Q&A, so I'm hoping people will bring computers and try stuff out. If anyone would like me to cover specific things, leave a comment here.

      Sounds great Joe. I really look forward to it. Can you point me to a resource for setting up a Git account? I'd like to have things set up and ready to go so I can practice. I'd really like to start using it to control code snippets...stuff I use over and over on different sites. I'd appreciate if you offered some advice on that as well if its applicable.

      You'll want an account on Github.com. You'll also want to install Git - http://goo.gl/pWfz7­ You could install something like Tortoise Git, or Github's client too - http://goo.gl/V1bUa­. I personally just use the command line, and that's what I'll be showing off, but the concepts should apply to the GUIs easily enough though.

    I will be doing an 'Intro to Git' presentation on at this Lab after all. If you have specific questions about git or version control in general, I'm happy to answer them, or at least try.

    January 3, 2013

  • Joe

    I posted in the email thread, but thought I'd mention here as well. I'm open to doing an 'Intro to Git' presentation if anyone would like to hear it.
