Git, GitHub, TFS, and Tools. Oh My.

Gwinnett Tech:

Building 100

Room 401

Git and GitHub have garnered enormous attention in the past couple of years, yet Microsoft related developers have often steered clear generally citing a lack of good tooling.

In this session we will look at Git itself and the various services and tools that make it much more useful in a Microsoft centered environment.

We'll look at GitHub, Team Foundation Service (hosted TFS), command line tools, GitHub for Windows, Atlassian's SourceTree and the Team Explorer for Visual Studio: ALL of which work well with Git.

The speaker will be GGMUG president, Jeff Ammons aka me.

Note that this will be a variation on the talk I'm giving at this year's Atlanta Code Camp. This way you can skip my talk and attend one of the other awesome talks going on at the same time, then fill ME in on those sessions. Sneaky, ain't I?

Also note that this is an expansion of a short, filler topic I did back in May.

    Great presentation Jeff. Lots of good coverage on Git GUIs. I'd encourage everyone to spend about 15 minutes at and learn how git works "under the hood" that way one has a good idea of how Git itself works, before getting attached to any particular GUI for git.

      Thanks, Cesar. I couldn't agree more. My feeling is that at least one person in an organization needs to have a "behind the scenes" notion of how git works. 90% of the time, the gui (or list of 5-6 commands) will get the job done, but that 10% when things go wrong, you need to know what git is doing in order to "git" thing sorted. My promise not to make jokes was only *during* the meeting.

    Excellent presentation! You should record that and put it on Youtube because it was by far the simplest explanation of Git I've seen.
