You Don't Know git!

Headliner: Jon Seidel

6:30 - 7:00: Open mic: get help; strut your stuff 

7:00 - 8:15: Featured presentation 

8:15 - 8:30: Jobs Offered / wanted / door prizes 

Presentation Abstract: You don't know git but you really need to: it's everywhere. We'll start with a simple one-person workflow but that won't work well in a large-scale development environment so I'll provide pointers from what I've learned on a recent engagement.

Bio: Longtime consultant, developer, manager but I still love to code in Ruby! Checkout NubyRubyRailsTales or my first Rails site.

Pre-meetup nosh: Join fellow Rubyists for an informal pre-meetup nosh.

5-6 pm, Thursday 8/21

Bay Fung Tong Tea House Restaurant

1916 Franklin St; Oakland, CA

The location is about a block East of the 19th St. BART station (walk a block down 19th; turn left on Franklin and look to your right for the restaurant. 
The restaurant is very nice, quiet (at that time of day), and has economical, interesting, tasty fare.

    I just came across this "I've got a mess" flowchart, and it reminded me of Jon's talk about being in the trenches.

    So you're saying the learning curve is roughly equivalent to that of using the turbo encabulator? Got it.

    Git gets easier once you get the basic idea that branches are homeomorphic endofunctors mapping submanifolds of a Hilbert space.
