Learn the basics of version control and Git, what is it, and why we use it.
This class is targeted at beginner and intermediate levels.
Prerequisites: beginner coding experience (just starting out)
Version control (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revision_control) is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large web sites, and other collections of information.
Git (http://git-scm.com/) is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance.
This is a one day workshop on Saturday, November 10th. The class runs from 10am-2pm. We ask that people arrive by 9:45, so that we can get started on time.
We will have an hour break for lunch around noon. Lunch is not included in the cost of class. There is a Panera Bread and a Jimmy John's close by in Bakery Square.
Students are required to bring their own laptop for classes. If you do not have a laptop, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before registering, and we’ll see if we can work something out.
